Gusty winds brought kite surfers to Belmont Shore on Sunday, 10/4. A few facts: You can get an entire kitesurfing rig (used) for $400. The kites do not sink because they have inflated spines. Kites do not fly away because they are designed to lie down if untethered. And, yes, kites will lift surfer off the ground and are a handful until in the surf. All photos by Keith May.
