18 Jan 2012 - The month of the kite


Location : St Kilda
Kite : 10m Switchblade
Wind: 25 knot southerly

What a month it is turning out to be.  Absolutely incredible amount of time spent kiting - and the wind has been playing along perfectly.  Got out with Tarren and James.  James really got up and going today - he is basically away which is fantastic.  
It was real windy - I used the opportunity to try some new stunts and the regular stuff - with some big success and some hard landings.  Managed to land a back foot board off on my preferred side - stoked.  Got 720 through a backloop and decided late to go for 1080 - bad idea - fully powered kite going backwards is never good.  Also raley's with gusts end up with you kind of hanging and drifting which is not so great either.  After about 40 minutes I was totally spent so chucked it in for another day - I think I'm still feeling the effects of the marathon session on Sunday.
