03 Sept 2011 - Brighton with bullets
Location : Brighton
Kite : 10m SwitchbladeConditions : 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.
