09 July 2011 - Hampton cool down
Location : Hampton
Kite : 10m SwitchbladeConditions : 15-20 knots westerly
After a holiday in the sun, this was the perfect way to readjust to Melbourne's temperature. A kite in 12C at Hampton in a very consistent westerly.
As mentioned previously, I've put a bit of a monatorium on new tricks as it is freezing in the water when you ditch the kite. So nothing crazy today, but great fun to be out in just enough wind, quite a swell around so some fun to be had in the waves. A boat busted a mast so I did my best to help take a lady to shore - but she was too freaked out to be helped much.
