Got out the day after a massive front hit Melbourne. Enough residual wind in the morning - from 17 to around 22 knots - to give the new kite another run. Kids are away so I was able to stay out for quite some time - mucking about in the waves, transitions and generally having fun on the kite.
The new kite handles so much better than my old one - its hard to imagine going back to it now. Picked up my old bar that has been repaired, got a new handle for my board and some glue for the divots in my new bar. Productive day !
