First 2016 blast out at Raglan Rivermouth. What's seems usual these days, many kitesurfers, but just me on a windsurfer until a guy called Tim joined in. Started with a few blasts back and forthh on the flat water in front of the steps/bogs. Made most of my gybes to start with but soon deteriorated as stamina gave in. Should get to the gym more, or even go once! After a quick rest and water break headed further out towards the bar, where actually water became a bit flatter for awhile and the swell more predictable rather than wind chop. Found the shallow lagoon on the opposite side with perfectly flat water and a thin strip heading parallel to the opposite beach. Super speedy but had to watch the depth and all the kites making random turns/jumps without looking first. Packed up when exhausted just before the tide turned. Looks like it could be wonder again tomorrow.
