A fun short session at Narrabeen

Narrabeen beach, New South Wales
Kite Surfing: freeride
1 pm - 2 pm Tuesday. March 8. 2011
my rating 4 star rating
Wind Direction: NE Wind Strength: powered

Another session on the 12m BWS noise and the twintip.

Warm sunny day, building NE, but only a short window of opportunity to get out due to other commitments. Wind was mostly a solid 15kn or so, dropping a fair bit to underpowered in a few short lulls, but well powered up on the gusts. No problems cranking up wind today! Smallish bumpy swell. It was fairly easy to get out past the shorebreak today.

Had a great time mostly just cruising out and back. Tried a few jumps. Nailed the timing perfectly (for me) on one jump and got great height and reasonable hang time and landed it! Stacked bad a few times after jumps and dropped the kite in the water - no problems relaunching when the wind is good. Screwed up a lot of my transitions and still need to get better riding in the chop. Came in after an hour. Wish I had more time...

Had a small issue self-landing. My usual technique did not work (basically pulling top front line). Kite did not stay on the sand and had to make use of the safety system.

A great, fun, short session.
