ABC Wednesdays - X for Xtreme Sports

One of the latest extreme sports catching on here is kite-boarding. I took this photo off Brighton last summer. I reckon it is great to watch, but I think I am past giving this a go.

The ABC Wednesday meme was created by Denise Nesbitt. To find out more about ABC Wednesdays and see other participants' contributions click here.

I covered xtreme sports, too, though from a critical angle.

We think as one with the letter, just different sports. I have always wanted to do this, in a warmer climate though than my island. Xcellent of course.

I KNOW I'm past giving it a go! I no longer even want to!

It's a good pic for this week though, isn't it?

That looks fascinating, Gordon! Do you go in for kite-boarding? I finally can reach your blog. Yesterday I couldn't. Thanks for your visit!

I'm glad he's there while I can sit here and look at the wonderful photo you took. Much better for me!

Reader Wil - I am glad it is working OK again. I have not changed any thing, so it must have been an Internet or Blogger glitch. Thanks for being persistent.

I wreck my brains and couldn't think of something for X. Now that I read your post, there are plenty of xtreme sports here in NZ.

Did you try the kite boarding yourself?

Cheers,

Ann
