Wind Power

These guys were having a heck of a time trying to kitesurf on the North Sea. Like yesterday's meditator, they were taking advantage of last week's one nice weather day. Although sunny, it was very windy.

Here's a look at one of the guys as they entered the water ... but he didn't stay up for long. (click to enlarge)

Did they actually get up or get going?

Thanks, Mary, it did look like fun despite the hard work. Abe, it took them over a half hour to blow up their kites and maneuver to the water, where they didn't seem to be having much luck staying up. But they looked like they were going to hang out for a while, so maybe they had better luck after I left.
