2015 12 29 - Making sure of it at St K

After a couple of days of not quite enough wind, I decided to hit St Kilda to be sure of a good sea breeze.  I arrived to about 20 knots of fantastic, consistent wind - good choice.  The beach was a bit smelly but the water was fine - fine enough to land backrolls, forward rotations, backroll to toeside both ways, toeside backroll to toeside, forward rotation transitions, and even landed somewhat awkwardly the toeside frontroll.  Fantastic progression when there is good consistent wind.  I returned home quickly for a game of tennis with the kids grinning ear to ear.

2015 12 28 - Fickle mentone

Got a good 20 mins in before the wind died out.  While it was on it was nice.  Just want more !

2015 12 27 - Beaumaris - good night for a walk

Only just enough to stay upwind with the twin tip, so I tried the surfboard.  Big mistake.  Went down wind and had to walk back from Black rock.   Luckily Pete grabbed me half way back.   Good to see Grant, Job, Pete &Stu on the beach though!

2015 12 21 - Going the prom with a robot

Thought I'd mix it up a bit and practice some dance moves whilst kiting.

Here is the robot (with serious face)


Fun session to wrap up a magnificent couple of windy days at the prom.

















2015 12 21 - Surfing the prom with Darren

Woke up to a cranking south westerly and good waves.  Hit the beach for a 1.5 hour session, Darren joined in on the surfboard for the last 40 minutes.  We both managed to get quite a few waves, I'd do a couple of laps of Norman beach and join Darren out the back to surf a wave back in.  Had to jump over Darren once which worked out fine - but not a good idea in general.

2015 12 20 - Sunset session

And they seem to love a sunset photo with a kite....

Just enough to keep a line and get some nice transitions in.  Heaps of people grabbing photos on the beach - I'll have to search the internet cause they went trigger happy when I went past on the kite.

2015 12 20 - Welcome to the prom!

Just enough wind to keep a line.  Great to be kiting at the prom again, amazing backdrop.

2015 12 12 - More birds, more worms

Great 2 hour session at Hampton with James, Tarren, Stu and Pete.

2012 12 03 - Early bird catches the worm

Hit Brighton with James at around 630.  Great session.  Kited down near Green point where we could play around in the flat water and waves.  Got back into darkslides - nice!
