Keeping it tropical in Key West, Blake Olsen shares another session in his latest vlog.
“Yesterday’s session at the White Street Pier, one of my favorite slicks in the world. It’s a fishing pier that sticks out into the Atlantic Ocean where locals and tourists enjoy sunrise and sunset celebrations every day of the year. Key West is a subtropical climate and the warmest place in America. I’ve based out of here for the past seven years and it’s where I call home. At the Southernmost tip of America is where you’ll find me when not traveling.
The White Street Pier is a very special place and also not somewhere for beginners. Up the road is Smather’s Beach with a sandy stretch of imported sand from the Bahamas. It’s a much easier launch and is nice and shallow for a way out. The intermediate to advanced riders go to both places but there’s something special about catching sunset there. Even experienced kiters have things go wrong and that’s why we’re all here to help. Don’t be afraid to talk to the locals and learn about new spots!
Taking you along for a ride at the White Street Pier.
Hope you enjoy,
