Kitesurfing in #Toronto

The wind wasn't that strong today and several kitesurfers were disappointed, but some did try their luck in the cold waters of Cherry Beach. The giant kites caught what little wind there was and sometimes the force helped launch people high into the air. It can make for an exciting and colourful extreme sport.

Cherry Beach is a popular spot to catch kitesurfers in action. The large kites were lined up along the beach as the operators waited for more wind.
Weaving among the sailboats you can see the Double Crested Cormorant birds nesting in the trees of Tommy Thompson Park on the Leslie Street Spit. The birds tend to kill the trees they roost in.
