Arrow Photos - Day II Jupiter Kiteboard Invasion

Heading back to the beach on Sunday. A new front arrived in the night, winds clocked from SW to N in less than 12 hours. Best part, these side onshore winds are BUILDING!



Flying into the day, Danny Albertson throws a nice jump.



Free riding, Click photo for full sized image




* If folks can provide missing identities please let me know.






Billy Parker flying for Flexifoil warms up



Lots of spectators



Packet leaves his Jimmy Lewis boards on the beach to throw some kite loops



Lots of directionals at the contest. Seems like it has been a while since I've seen them airborne. Used to be very familiar back in the day.



Big Ian booted in as usual tacks in



Brandon Bowe pops one in the foreground as Jon Modica riding for Cabrinha tries an aerial move, strapless.



Dan Floyd down from South Carolina and having fun.



Brandon Scheid on a wave



Billy stays focused



Brandon pops one



Brandon Bowe throws a kite loop against a gray sky.

Sunday was more overcast and darker than Saturday. So, the images needed a lot more touching up in Photoshop and it shows. How about wind and sun next time? Has happened a lot over the years of the event, just not always.



Multiple flying objects, Erik Merrill floats board off above it all.






There's Billy with Southwind






Did I mention it was a bit chilly? This dog has the good sense to cover up with a little help.






Bill Werme hard at his art, capturing some excellent stills of the action



Riding strapless



Sean is a very strong rider has his competitive record shows.



Jumping without footstraps, what keeps rider and board together? Inertia and a fair amount of skill.





Takes me back



Packet models the latest in rider cold wear, the JL snug-e. Wonder if you can kite in it?



Rushing back upwind






Enrique and his son Jan talk strategy. Enrique runs the famous kiteboarding competition between Naples and Ft. Myers, FL.



Melissa works back upwind too



Sometimes, it just goes like that.



Tommy upside down again, looks like he has Dan's attention.








See you later. Should be at least another installment of photos from the event.

Dimitri splits the difference




Jamie concentrates as she comes in, getting ready to boost big.

Something up with gravity in the place?




Nice boost by Dimitri

Awesome Pictures! Looks like a windy event. Good mix of straps, strapless, surfboards, skimboards, boots, etc.

Thank you! It is a good event, even better in strong winds and nice sized waves. It is a great wave venue.
