Its just an awesome setup. Arrived at Seaford and it was bucketing down, soon enough the rain cleared, blue skies opened up and Taz and I hit the beach. Solid 20 knots, which peaked up to around 25 at stages. At one stage when the wind was high I got a nice bit of air, looked across and Taz had followed the same pattern coming the other way - quick wave to acknowledge the highlight !
Excellent water, and nice runs beside the pier. Did quite a few jumps with kiteloops, still haven't quite nailed it yet, but getting there. Snuck in a darkslide and lots of rotational jumps. Magnificent session. Stu Styles joined late in the piece, but the alure of the sausage was beckoning so we retreated to the carpark.
Oh - and I stuffed up the launch and drifted my kite almost into the fence down there. Its such a narrow beach - hate having the wired fence so close too. It's the only downside to a magnificent location.
Kiting weekend - so time for an epic adventure. James and Pete joined me in Rosebud - we hatched plans to cross the bay, or go out to popes eye, but the prevailing wind made a down and back trip from Rosebud to Mt Martha a much more appealing option. Heaps of wind - which seemed to get stronger around safety beach - made it pretty much one tack to get there and back. Still required a bit of perserverance to hold a line and some variation to keep from cramping up.
After a dissapointing no show at Seaford - Pete, Stu and I went but the wind didn't - great to get an afternoon in at Brighton. Pretty solid for the most part, but dropped off at times and also came through hard at times - pretty much normal. Great to be on the water - certainly helps clear the mind.
