Kite surfer in Gisborne

Gisborne is a beach city and famous for its surfing beaches. This was taken from Waikanae Beach looking across Tūranganui-a-Kiwa (Poverty Bay). I chose to make this a black and white photograph as there is a lot of contrast in the way that the sun was hitting the waves. I watched this kite surfer for about half an hour. There were about five others in the water but this person stood out. They were moved fast up and down the waterfront. And getting airborne a lot. A couple of times they went much higher out the water than this. As someone who enjoys flying a kite, kite surfing has always interested me as something I’d like to try one day.
