Goofing around with a Hobie 16 and a decent kite boarder

The weather has been kind to us since we opened for this summer and we have seen perfect cross-shore winds most afternoons in May. That's not unexpected, of course, since it's like this pretty much season round.

But what do you do when you're spoiled with such fantastic weather conditions? You experiment! A while ago, our beach manager Joe took the opportunity to try out a bit of kiteboarding... behind a Hobie 16!

You can check out the action in the video below:
