my rating 2 star rating
Wind Direction: S Wind Strength: powered

Wind: 15kn+ Swell: 2m @ 8s S Tide: L 0.28m @ 5:21pm

Looked like a fair amount of wind out there, maybe 15-20kn South at the start. Some swell about with waves in the 3 foot region plus or minus.

Went out on the 10m Noise kite. Tried the surfboard first. Just didn't feel right on the board, struggling to feel in control. So after a while I came in and got the twintip. Was going ok. Tried a few jumps but they were all crap. Was well powered at this stage but still didn't feel right. Just couldn't hold my edge properly and felt like I was riding in the poo stance. Kept falling in the water and kooking out. As the wind died down I went in and got the surfboard again. Had some moderate success for a while but again started falling off and having a shocker.

A very frustrating session. I felt really uncoordinated and it was like I had gone back a year or more in experience and skill. Oh well... just one of those days... hope my next session works out a lot better.
