Shakespeare Bay, Auckland
Kite Surfing: freestyle

my rating 3 star rating
Wind Direction: SW Wind Strength: powered

  First time kitesurfing in Shakespeare Park, wind was about 14kts, tide come in, pump the 12 meters Airush One. First time also riding in wave, very small but waves.

  The first time I try to water start was strange, the waves took me of the course I lost control and felt. Lesson learned, wait to water start between the waves and all good.

  After a bit I was comfortable, did some good transitions others not so good, much more control of the board, sometimes the wave tried to take me of the course but I could manage keep on track. I tried to ride one wave and the board start to get to much speed and I need to stop, I believe I need some more practice on it.

  In the end was a good day, very happy with my upwind, I could keep all the time my height but I was not think on it all the time.

  I didn't try anything different during the transitions because the waves was already something I need to pay attention, maybe next time.
