Took a spring break road trip form Colorado to South Padre Island Texas. If any of you are wind-based sport affectionados, you'll know that the Mile High state isn't exactly known for its smooth, consistent winds. Or winds at all. Which is why we drove a couple thousand miles to Texas, where the spring winds were supposed to be legendary.

Unfortunately, we got there and there was an unprecidented lull in the wind. 3 months of solid, perfect wind gave way to 1 week of nada. Such is life I guess.

But finally, after driving thousands of miles, spending thousands of dollars, and spending more time than I'd care to admit sitting on the beach waiting for wind, it came. Down in South Padre Island TX, finally got a decent evening breeze. Wasn't much, but at least it was enough to get the kite flying. This was just some random guy I saw, when he was able to get the kite flying while I sat on the beach.
