19 April on Lac Staint-Jean near Chicoutimi, Quebec - near the site of WISSA 2010. This area has a very different climate from other parts of Quebec such as Montreal and Quebec City. Winters are long, and spring offers lots of sailing in warmer temperatures and steady winds.
This is Kite designer and builder Benoit Tremblay. Notice that the ice goes on and on all the way out over the horizon.
The little ones often go along for the ride. One day they will be kiters too.
