Footage from an afternoon of surfing powder out in western Maryland the day after one of many storms they have received this winter. John welcomed us to his homestead and we drove to a few fields where he has received permission to kite. It was epic!
John, Dean and Steve were ripping it up! Jessie killed it on his second session ever, Deb snowkited with a trainer, and I got to hit long downhills with a kite for the first time. I had a ton of fun learning to park the kite, cruise down a run with nothing but gravity, then power back up the hill with the kite to do it again. It wasn't easy, but it was addictive and probably the most fun I've ever had kiting. Still stoked just thinking about it!!!
A big thanks to John for the guide services and we all look forward to kiting with him again soon!
The POV footage is shot with my GoProHD, the alternate perspective is Dean's Vado, and the stills were by everyone. Good times. Good friends. Great spot!
Wednesday was fun, Saturday was incredible but Sunday was off the hook!!! That's it, three good days on the snow and I'm officially addicted to this sport.
This was the same field as Day 2 but I had more wind so ventured a little further into a neighboring field. More rolling fields, great scenery, superb snow and a solid shredder to share the session with! Just wish I had more time out there to carve.
I'm ready for the next blizzard. The state of Maryland isn't... My house isn't... But me...I'm ready. Bring it. :)
A video journal of our day snowkiting some "local" terrain at High Point Lake, PA and a sunset session across the street in WV. Superb 6 meter kite day that far exceeded expectations! Hope to get back out this way again soon. Good times with John & Jesse!
