Tigertail Beach is a beautiful, white-sand beach on Florida’s Marco Island (on the Sunshine State’s west coast). It’s a unique spot, and you can kite its flat-water lagoon or easily walk across a thin strip of beach separating the lagoon from the gulf and kite the surf and chop in the Gulf of Mexico. However, it is a bit of…

Toeside Front Roll to Toeside

Toe to toe, a front roll with a difference. It’s funny how so much of kiting is based off one’s heels, when there are parallel universes out there comprised of all things toes, and if your name’s Tom Bridge, all things blind.
