Found a local spot not far from home browsing Google Earth.

Who knew? I have lived in my town and state my entire life and never had a clue this was here.

Dutton Island Preserve a.k.a. Pine Island. Jacksonville,Florida.

The journey starts on the entrance road to the island. Although not alot of recovery room to either side of the road, great spot to catch the wind in the intracoastal waterway. No powerlines...no anything.post-7551-0-28339400-1412230697_thumb.jppost-7551-0-19925900-1412230751_thumb.jppost-7551-0-23556700-1412230721_thumb.jp

Then I ventured on the island. Found 2 small docks and a larger one...which i quickly headed out on. Trees along the route called for a dock launch and land with absolutely no where to run..but the wind was in my favor and direction. post-7551-0-87304500-1412230498_thumb.jppost-7551-0-91810900-1412230539_thumb.jppost-7551-0-11921400-1412230571_thumb.jppost-7551-0-57002900-1412230627_thumb.jp

Had a few more pics ...but too large and i am lazy :P

Always nice adding and finding hidden gems...all because of kites and the constant need to feel the wind. 1 line or 4 :P

Agreed, some nice shots there, S.

Something about KAP'n from a dock, makes for some good material. I shot from a dock in a marina recently in some iffy winds... I was really close to dipping the camera a few times ! Underwater KAP, anyone ? :cat_lol:

      World Wide KAP Week - #WWKW2019 - is on, and we flew our camera in difficult, turbulent conditions with the wind way too strong for our venerable Rokkaku ... This session in Tivoli park, Ljubljana, didn't produce exceptional photos, but every KAP is a good KAP, right?
      Check out the full set on our KAP website! 😉

      Hello again 🙂

      Here are some kite aerial photos of Dornava Manor, the largest and most exquisite Baroque architectural ensemble in Slovenia. Built in the first half of the 18th century it still boasts one of the longest Baroque garden axis in the region. Read more about it - and see more aerial photos! - on our KAP website ...

      All photos shot with a new KAP kite - a dr.agon D90 BW mini delta, designed for strong(er) winds (it went over 50 km/h here).

      A nice story and a couple of kite aerial photos of the medieval heart of Ljubljana, Slovenia was just published on our KAP website ... 😉
      Launched from a tricky, narrow place with a lot of turbulence - but with quite good results it was worth having a couple of litle heart attcks 🙂 ...
