Headed down to St Kilda to grab a late seabreeze with Pete. It came in just enough - around 16-17 knots - for us to get a tour in down to the mouth of the yarra and back. Funnily enough we came back on exactly the same tack - not easy to get upwind today. Sorted out downloop turns though - which generate a stack of power - good thing to try in light conditions.

A strong seabreeze hit Hampton, so James, Pete and I hit the beach at around 4pm. It felt to be about 20 something knots on the beach, but after rigging up the 10 and heading out, it was blowing a pretty consistent 27 knots out the back. I managed to get quite a few huge airs going launching off the top of waves as they came through. It took a lot of effort to hold the kite down in such strong wind - kept the session fairly short but intense. Not the time to be trying new tricks though !

Very late session - got to the beach after putting the kids to bed. Left at 718, got to the beach at 748 and kited until the sun went down (about 830). Just enough wind to stay upwind and do some transitions with kite loops. Gotta love daylight savings.

Tarren, James and I met up down at Hampton for an evening session. Nice wind for about 40 minutes, fantastic to be on the water after a hot day. Ankle is getting better and better. Damned if I could land a backroll to toeside, doing faceplants again.
