Seabreeze frustration on Narrabeen

Narrabeen beach, New South Wales
Kite Surfing: freeride
4:30 pm - 6 pm Sunday. March 13. 2011
my rating 3 star rating
Wind Direction: NE Wind Strength: underpowered

Nice sunny day, with an expectation that a decent seabreeze would come on. But it didn't...

Got to the beach about 4:30pm. Wind was NE and marginal. Wind was probably 10-15kn and a bit up and down - felt ok when it was up, but then when it went down there was clearly not enough. Quite a few people at the beach, and everyone seemed to struggle to stay upwind - even the guys on surfboards.

Went out on the 12m noise and twintip. Went out and back and came in a long way downwind. Did the walk of shame and then just waited around on the beach for half an hour or so. The wind felt like it was picking up so I went out and had a good half an hour just powered up enough to stay upwind. Then the wind died again, and I had some trouble relaunching my kite after a screw up. When I got the kite up I just went in.

Session gets a generous 3 star rating because it was such a nice day, the water is such a great temperature, and I had at least half an hour or so of fun!
