13 March 2011 - Beaumauris storm front


Location : Beaumauris
Kite : 10m Switchblade IDS
Conditions : 25 knots south westerly dropping to 17 knots


As this was the only day that was going to be any good this long weekend, we headed down on a predictwind prediction that the wind was going to change and come in hard.  It did - but predict wind didn't tell us that it was going to be accompanied by a storm front.  Heaps of rain and up to 35 knot gusts greeted our arrival.  Had a good session though - some good waves to be had off the point, but it is a perilous place for kitesurfing - rocks everywhere and not a very wide beach.  No real progression today - but really nailing transitions now which is nice.
