Our beach is the perfect place to kiteboard and windsurf. It also has become a favorite launching point for paragliding. When the wind picks up there are often surfers riding the waves near the Sannibel Causeway. For those new to these sports--kiteboarding involves a large kite that pulls you on a special board. Windsurfing (no picture) involves a sail that is attached to a surfboard. Paragliding uses a parasail (like a parachute) and a fan worn on the user's back. The fan provides the power. In parasailing you are hooked to a parasail and pulled behind a speedboat. Vendors on the beach offer instruction in parasailing and kiteboarding.
