2017 03 05 - wow

awesome afternoon at Hampton after the family christmas at the Allans.  Beefy 20 knot plus wind, so some good air.  Sorted out kiteloops on landing, piece of cake, just don't put the kite too far back in the window.  Did a lot of doubles - both forward and backward.  Landed a toeside backroll with kiteloop - absolute piece of cake.  Tried a deadman and got dunked.  Fantastic wind.

2017 02 25 - Mentone is not often good...

...but when it is, it can be spectacular.  Met up with James, Dobbo and Mike at Mentone.  The wind was cranking, probably around 25, so perfect wind for some wave riding and big air.  Stu sailed in from Beaumaris headland to say hi also.  
Had a fantastic time, did get smacked big time though going for a double backroll, entered a loop as I was completing the final rotation, fully powered flying backwards into not much water.  Worked out ok but could have been super nasty.
