North Dice 12 meters Premiere

Shakespeare Bay, Auckland
Kite Surfing: freestyle
12 pm - 2 pm Sunday. August 7. 2016
my rating 0 star rating
Wind Direction: S Wind Strength: powered

  Forecast for today, 20 kts gusty 30 kts, we decided go to Shakespeare Bay. We get there around 11:30 and have 3 kiters in the water with a 9 meters kite. Andrea and myself was not convinced the wind was this strong. One of the guy stop and he told me the wind have dropped, was good for 9 but now is more like 12 meters.

  I couldn't get any better notice, I bought a North Dice 12m a more than 3 months ago and I couldn't have opportunity to use it. Let's do it. The only problem, was cold, really cold.

  Andrea pumped the Cabrinha 11m and I pumped my 12m. The first 20 minutes was not so good, I was under powered and I couldn't go upwind, but after 20 minutes the wind pickup and was very good, the kite is amazing, a could felt the difference, it response much more than my Airush One, and is more precise as well.

  I have problem when I was getting to much upwind and I decided ride more relax, because was choppy was not so easy and I need also to improve my upper leg muscle.

  After a hour my upper leg muscle start to hurt and I need to change direction when I couldn't get any more, and this happen with the other leg and I need change direction again. I did this till my transitions start to be so close and I decided stop.

  After the wind pickup again and the guys started to fly 9m and 7m.
