While the rest of you were sitting around sipping your café lattes last a Sunday morning, 17 fearless kitesurfers took on the WindAid challenge: to kite from Coolum to Sunshine Beach. The surf was like a washing machine, the sky so blue it hurt and the wind – well, over the course the day, it gave us everything it had. Twelve of the crew managed to touchdown at Sunshine, with conditions proving too brutal for some. Nonetheless, it was a truly awesome day and we should all be proud that we made it without any major breakages to people or gear. Best of all, we raised almost $700 for the flood relief appeal, so well done everyone and thanks for joining in the fun!
