The wind was howling Sunday afternoon, so Mascha and I loaded up our cameras in the Jeep and went on a search for kite-boarders on Isle of Palms and Sullivan’s Island. After having no luck on IOP, nor Sullivan’s near the breach inlet, we drove to the end of Sullivan’s by Fort Moultrie and discovered a bunch of stoked wind-fanatics rushing out of their cars with their gear and launching from 12th street. If you’re like me and you can’t get enough of watching these guys (and gals, though I didn’t catch them this time) play in the wind and waves, there’s the inaugural Fort2Battery contest happening Sunday, April 6th, in which some of the fastest wind-powered craft in the world will race from Fort Sumter to the Battery. If you see me out there with my camera, please say hi!
These images below are some of my favorite from Sunday’s session. To see them larger, plus the rest of the images from the day, or, to buy any of the images, please click here. To learn more about the Fort2Battery race, please click here.
