Met up with Taz, Pete, James and Stu at the supermarket carpark for another awesome session at Seaford. Nice and cool - the hardest part was getting into the wetsuit, after that fairly toasty. My arm is finally starting to die down - its been a total pain. Can't wait for it to fade away.
Went for a couple of big loops before crashing pretty hard and winding it back. Some nice rotational jumps as ever.
Metup with Taz, Pete, Stu, Richard and James down at Aspendale - another great little gathering at 730am. Wind was rock solid at around 20, which prompted Taz to try and set new records with the Woo. I had a go at a lot of rotationals. Still got pain in my arm, but just worked out an exercise to free it up so I was able to get some relief. Great to be on the water as ever.
Taz set some new records with his woo - highest jump for that spot. Got a little air myself.
Blowing big time. We got down to the beach ridiculously early in the morning, with a forecast of between 25 and 30. It was blowing at least 30 and on the water it was hitting about 35. Quite tricky to launch as there was very little beach, so Taz and I did assisted launches with kites in one hand. The challenge at Seaford is the combination of not much sand and wired fences - which are a little daunting.
On the water it was big air time - and surfing time. It was blowing pretty much straight onshore, so I was able to go between the pier and Frankston with no great difficulty. Got pushed off one wave and my lines wrapped around two fins on my board - which i had to untangle immediately - it would have been a nightmare if I wasn't able to free it. Big air, waves, and a bit of old spice - a few fronts blew through which bought heavy, sleeting rain with them. All a stack of fun - just wish this tendonitis would go away though !
