Wind Direction: SW Wind Strength: light

  First time kiting in Glendowie, well I can't say I was really kiting, was another day with light wind.

  For a long time I want to go to Glendowie spit to kitesurf, I have seeing some videos there and look like a very good place to kitesurf, because that we decided go there to checkout even though we knew the wind will be light.

 We were in four Gislayne, Bruno, Jessyka and myself, We read some tips about parking in a website and decided to park our car in Vista cres rd and walk to the spit to pump the kite. The other 2 options we need to kite to the spit, wich was not a option because the light wind.

  First the place is very nice, you can kite in both sides of the spit, we choose the South side because the wind was a bit strong on that side, but in a good day the North side with SW wind will be very flat I believe.

 I don't have much to say about the kitesurfing, I was with my Dice 12 meters and the surfboard, was not enough to keep my height, I need to walk upwind each 2 or 3 legs. Bruno was most of the time teaching Jessyka, there is a good place to learn.

 We get there with the tide almost full, and when we left a few hours later the tide was really low, you need to check the tide before head to there.
