For a long time I want to go back to Omaha, I have had some good sessions there and today I decided to have a go again.
I new SW wind at Omaha will be gust, but I had a very good session there with the wind from SSW and I thought will be better there than Shakespeare, not that I don't like Shakespeare but the latest session I had there was very crowd. The other reason was I bought a new toy, a Cabrinha 5'10" S-quad kite-surfboard and I want to have a go strapless. The Omaha flatwater will be the perfect spot.
We get there early, high tide will be 17:30 but we want to have a relax day, go to the beach, rest, eat something and around 2pm got to kite. We did that, 2pm we were at the lagoon waiting the water rise, 2:30 we started kiting, I pumped the Dice 9m but because the wind was gust I decided start with the twin-tip and if I felt comfortable I will change to the surfboard. This didn't happen, the wind was very gusty and changing direction, was fun deal with all this but definitively was not for debut a surfboard strapless.
I didn't try anything, only a couple of toe-side transition and was it. After a while we decided we have enough, I started to be tired, was time to go home.
Was fun, was relaxing but I am missing a good day of kiting, let's see what this week will bring.
