WOULD IT BE POSSIBLE TO KITESURF TO GRECCE?











Location: Greece, 2011


Photographer: Sarah J Wolfe


I'd like to book a holiday. A cheap one mind. The sunny beams are lovely but are starting to tease on my longing to explore a far away coastline.


I could construct a kite, stuff a rucksack to bursting point with bikinis(limited suitcase room)and suntan lotion and set off on the road to the nearest coastline. The only wall that my handmade kite and I will surf right into? I cannot kite surf. But how hard can it be? 


Looking up into the blue Grecian sky last summer, the kites looked like exotic butterflies free to fly and dance in the vast sky above the clear blue sea lapping below. Following your eyes down the kite strings, the kitesurfers below took the form of puppeteers, guiding the butterflies above. 


Maybe I'll take some lessons with the money I received for my birthday. Enjoy the beams.
