Hutt Lagoon: pink and full of Vitamin A | Photo Stills: Steve Back

What if a pink water wind spot had the perfect sailing conditions for speed addicts? Meet the Hutt Lagoon, a different salt lake located in Western Australia.

The Hutt Lagoon is the ultimate wind challenge. With its 14 kilometers in length, 2.3 kilometers of maximum width and a maximum depth of 0.65 meters, it could be the last frontier of speed sailing.

Lying a few meters below sea level, the Hutt Lagoon presents an unusual characteristic that would certainly impress female windsurfers and female kiteboarders. Its waters are pure pink. Bright rose.

The pink hue is explained by the presence of the carotenoid-producing algae Dunaliella Salina, a source of beta-carotene, a food-coloring agent and source of Vitamin A. This means approximately 20% of the Hutt Lagoon is explored commercially.

The Indian Ocean is only a few meters away, separated by a barrier dune system. During summer, about 95% of the surface is a dry salt flat, so sailors should try it in winter, with the rainfall.

The Hutt Lagoon is one of "The Seven Salt Lake Wonders of Australia". The nearest town is Gregory, a small community in the banks of Hutt River. Photographer Steve Back has captured the beauty and the colors of the spot, in all its glory.

There are no reports of any windsurfing or kiteboarding experiences in the Hutt Lagoon. Are you willing to take the pink challenge?

Whether you think of a kite as a wing or a sail, you want it to be lightweight, resistant, waterproof, but also stiff and flexible at the same time, so that they could respond to all flight requests.
