“Got kitesurfing on the mind, mixed with some search & classification tech, and a dab of political ranting”

Kite Sailing, the next frontier…

Posted by direwolff on October 23, 2005

For any of you who have kept up with some of my postings, you probably already know how ga-ga I am about kitesurfing. Well, the sport continues to evolve, in particular the use of kites as better wind propulsive instruments than traditional sails. These are also being considered as complimentary to cargo ships’ engine propulsion as the use of wind can help reduce the fuel costs.

Anyway, the picture above shows some early versions of this recently tested out on the SF Bay. You can see a medley of these pics. Cool, stuff worth checking out.
