my rating 3 star rating
Wind Direction: NE Wind Strength: underpowered

Wind: 15kn NE Swell: 1m ENE @ 6s Tide: L 0.45m @ 5:25pm

A warm, sunny summer's day at last. And a NE seabreeze with just enough strength. Around 15kn, with good power to start with, but a bit light at the end. Small junky NE windswell and low tide.

Spent most of the session on the 6 foot strapless surfboard and 10m Noise kite. Rode a couple of waves, but not really much to them in terms of size and length of ride. Was doing a little better with transitions on the surfboard to start with, but started screwing up half way through my session. It doesn't help that I end up with 2 bald spots on my surfboard where the wax rubs off after 45 minutes or so. Had a brief stint on the twintip trying to do a few jumps. Did one ok jump but I seem to find it harder to jump this kite than the 9m blade trigger.

Water's warm. Did this session in boardshorts and rashvest. Could have done with a little more wind at the end but a nice way to spend the afternoon.
