03 Sept 2011 - Brighton with bullets


Location : Brighton
Kite : 10m Switchblade
Conditions : 15-35 knots northerly


Terrible conditions down at Brighton - started out with 15 knots but gusting up to 35 knots.  It was like riding the old c kites - there were moments when I was so powered that I had no real control anymore - pretty harrowing.  Jeremy had come down to have another crack at kiting but I had to put him off - it was no time for getting back on the horse.  Saw 2 guys in trouble and one lost a kite.  Shocking conditions - but it did unnerve me a little as I couldn't even do the most basic trick.
