Strong SE and really well powered on the 10m at Narra

North Narrabeen, NSW
Kite Surfing: freeride
1:15 pm - 2:15 pm Saturday. October 20. 2012
my rating 3 star rating
Wind Direction: SE Wind Strength: powered

Wind: S-SE 20kn+ Swell: 1m S @ 7s

It was a hot sunny day and around midday a strong S-SE wind arrived - a solid 20kn, maybe slightly more. Small 1-2 waves. Went out on the surfboard and 10m Noise kite. Put a little depower on the kite and was still well and truly powered up, getting close to overpowered. Was able to motor up wind, come into the beach, do a mini downwinder in the waves trying to use the waves and turn on the face, they go out, upwind and do it again.

Was having an awesome time until I had a stack, dropping the kite in the water. Relaunched it but it just felt wrong, not as much power, un-responsive and unstable, wanting to fall. After another 5 mins or so I just came in. Couldn't see anything obviously wrong with the kite or lines - will need a closer inspection.

An awesome session until the kite started misbehaving.
