Just before Christmas it was possible to get some enthusiastics together and do the first time Kite Skating in an empty Dam in Beaufort-West, South Africa.

The setting was perfect, low sun, dry dam, nice steady winds.

The Kite picked the wind up very quick and soon we were at the other side of the dam. On the way there was only dust behind the skater from the speed and all the little bumps and dips were no problem for the skates. It felt almost like waterskiing.

I think there is big potential for this in this country, especially in the countryside, where the sea is far. Also it would have been nice to be pulled by a car. So still some ideas for next time.
