We hooked up with Kurt Schmeltzer in Port Elizabeth, a 15 year old kitegrom who is one of the hottest riders in PE.
Port Elizabeth has plenty wind year round, warm waters (no wetsuits required), and no crowded beaches!
On a perfect kiting day it is pretty normal to go to the beach and only find 2 or 3 kiters out - this in the middle of peak season!
We are currently touring PE and surroundings and are writing a travel feature. We are staying on a friends yacht and go sailing twice a week. Yesterday, before our session at Blue Water Bay we managed to go out and get a glimpse of what the wind is doing out on the ocean and where it's blowing strongest.
Here is the first pictures taken at Blue Water Bay.
Here's some pictures of Kurt Schmeltzer in action :
