2017 01 08 - Half excellent, half disaster

Amazing first half of downwinder from Frankston to Hampton with Pete and Anthony.
Landed a triple back and several double backs and forwards.  It was like surfing one massive wave all the way down the coast.  A real joy.

Going past Mordy pier I realised I was going to run into a stack of fishing lines so turned around and ran straight into Pete's kite.  I hadn't checked that no-one was right behind me - our kites tangled and got all sorts of mucked up.  I hit safety, but it was a steaming mess - both of us got pulled through under the pier.  Kite lost one of the connector lines, and had to cut my lines off the pier pilons.  Crappy situation.
