A Good Week to Kite Surf!

June 3, 2011 Updated Jun 3, 2011 at 5:25 PM EDT

Hamburg, NY (WKBW)

Hamburg Town Park along Route 5 is the premier kite surfing spot in NYS. A small, growing group of these lake surfers take to the water and to the sky--jumping 30 to 40 feet in the air. Small chutes catch the prevailing winds, helping the surfers launch off of waves and rocket across the rolling seas at top speed.

EWN captured some of the action this week. Stay tuned to EWN and Accuweather for those windy days that are perfect for kite surfing!
