Botany Bay, windsurfing

I knew that windsurfing was always a popular sport on Botany Bay but what I hadn't realised was how popular kitesurfing had become. Another heatwave on the weekend sent the crowds out to the beaches and the strong breezes over the bay provided the perfect conditions for the windsurfing and kitesurfing enthusiasts. This lone windsurfer was outnumbered by the kitesurfers on the bay. Windsurfing or Sailboarding uses a board attached to a sail. Kitesurfing, also known as Kiteboarding or Parasurfing, involves a kite held by the hands and a board strapped to the feet.

  2. Kite surfing? I never heard of it here in Ohio. It sure looks like a lot of people are participating in your photographs.

  3. Thanks for the feedback.

    It can be a bit confusing when people around the world use different terms for the same sport. Kitesurfing, Kiteboarding and Parasurfing all describe the same sport which involves the kite and surfboard. Meanwhile, the other sport I described is better known as Windsurfing or Sailboarding using the sail attached to the board. Parasailing actually involves a parachute towed behind a boat.

    Phew! I'll add a bit more info to my post.

  5. 我家很美需要做室內設計,所以需要房屋二胎來代款,才能做室內設計,做室內設計要花好多錢唷。

    這樣就不怕被徵信社捉姦了。
