On windy days just off Interstate 275 near the Skyway Bridge you most likely will find people out kite surfing on the waters of Tampa Bay. I drove up recently with some friends and we were able to watch a dozen or so show off their skills. I enjoyed watching them from their starting off point open their kites, straighten the cords, attach this thing and that thing, then wade into the water, strap onto their board and away they went. They were having the times of their lives soaring over the water and occasionally became airborne. I captured several kites and one rider with the Skyway Bridge in the background.
