Catching the Long Beach breeze – literally
By Toni Miles
The official start of summer hasn’t even rolled around yet, but South Mississippi’s venues for summer hobbies are already heating up, seen recently as kite surfers dotted the beachfront horizon of the city of Long Beach.
The picturesque scene unfolded as kite surfing enthusiasts broke out their kite boards, as they often do on very windy days, venturing out into the choppy waters of the Mississippi Sound to launch high in the sky.
Kite surfing, also known as kite boarding, has grown in popularity since it started about thirty years ago. South Mississippi is a hot spot for these water sport enthusiasts on days packing strong winds, and they have been seen often over the years as they take to the skies and sail over the Mississippi Sound.
