Kite boarding looks like fun. Jetty Park in Fort Pierce is a great place to go. We go to watch the boats come back from sea, folks fishing on the jetty and sea birds.
Last week as we were walking on the jetty, we saw kids kite boarding across the water in Fort Pierce Inlet State Park. It was fascinating watching the kite boarders across the water, oftentimes flying above the waves. The next day we went to the inlet park so that we could view the kite boarders up close.
We stopped at the ranger station and paid the fee to enter the park and we asked her which way to go to see the kids kit boarding. She pointed the way and gave us a pamphlet that told us about the park. The park is simply beautiful with a half-mile beach. Dynamite Point was once a training ground for Navy Seals. Now the park is a place for snorkeling, diving, fishing, bird watching and kite boarding or kite surfing
Walking on the trail to the beach, we saw this sign. Who knew there was a code of ethics for surfers?
This photo is of two of dozen or so the kite boarders that were present on the beach that day. It even appeared that a class was going on. They start out by learning to control the kite while they are dragging their butt along the sandy beach.
This young fella is learning how to control the kite while on the beach. Check out the tracks behind him in each of the photo’s. He started out walking with the kite and before too long the kite was dragging him across the beach on his butt.
