Rob & Terry Kitesurfing

Blow-ins from Brisbane ;)

When fellow kite surfers and windsurfers join in the action at Elliot Heads, the locals are pretty inclusive. I guess it all comes down to the non-local kitesufers' attitude. Some are friendly, like Rob, Terry and Tina were this week. After a few sessions, everyone was getting on like old mates. Some non-local kitesurfers just stick to themselves, and that's OK too, we just leave them alone. Very rarely people are plain rude, which is a shame, because for the most part the Elliott Heads locals are a friendly bunch - so if you plan to drop by our neck of the woods, I recommend you take the time to get to know us.

After just a few sessions, we pretty much adopted Rob, Terry and Tina as locals. Rob was sharing his new 11m C4 Ozone kite around, and everyone was keen see these guys in action and learn a few new techniques, so I grabbed my camera and Vimeo'd Friday's session.
