2017 06 25 - Dawn raid on Seaford

Met up with Taz at about 650 at Seaford for an amazing dawn session.  Hit the water when it was still dark, tried a lot of loops, raley where I also hit the 2nd safety while hooking back in.  Glorious moment when the sun came up on the magnificent small waves.  Ridiculously amazing way to start the day.

2017 05 25 - Aspendale

Tina was away, so what better time to play.  Great session at Aspendale.

2017 05 27 - Seaford again

northerly you are very great.

2017 05 06 - Seaford session

yippee - great session at Seaford as ever. met up with Taz with just enough wind and rode it as it came in.  Finished with a sausage.

2017 04 29 - Aspendale comes through

I woke up to a bit of wind...and it seemed like I could get a westerly session in so I headed straight for Aspendale.  It was perfect.  About 17-20 knots on the water, enough to let me do some doubles, try unhooked stuff, darkslide, backroll kiteloops and anything else I could think of.  Most of them ended in stacks, some of them came off.  Backroll kiteloops are now under control, even on the weaker side.  I've found I have to delay pulling the trigger on the kiteloop, seems to work better.  Also hit some loops while landing jumps, pretty hard landing sometimes though.  My heel was a bit sore at the end - don't know whether its just the cold or the landings with loops.  Definitely time to reel out the bigger wetsuit, was a bit chilly.

Taz kited down from his house to around gnotuk (and back) and Job joined me on the beach just as I was finishing off.

2017 04 25 - Hampton at last

What a long lay off.  No wind at all - this is normally a low wind time of year but this has been extraordinary.  We had to call off the kiting weekend as there was absolutely nothing happening.

This one was certainly a surprise session.  No forecast, but I woke at 8 to fairly high wind and a break in the rain.  We hightailed it down to Hampton, met Tarren on the beach but Pete, James, Stu and Anthony were not far behind.  Had a great time trying all the standard fare, and pulled off a darkslide and raley.  Taz was landing some ridiculous unhooked tricks, he's really stepped it up.  Big session - out for 1 hour 45 and packed up just before the rain hit.  Awesome.

2017 08 04 - Brighton as normal

After a dissapointing no show at Seaford - Pete, Stu and I went but the wind didn't - great to get an afternoon in at Brighton.  Pretty solid for the most part, but dropped off at times and also came through hard at times - pretty much normal.  Great to be on the water - certainly helps clear the mind.
