Pt Chevalier

Pt. Chevalier, Auckland
Kite Surfing: freestyle
1:30 pm - 2:30 pm Wednesday. January 4. 2017
my rating 1 star rating
Wind Direction: SW Wind Strength: powered

  First time kiting Pt Chevalier, because I living and work in North Shore Pt Chev is always "far" and is easier go to Shoal Bay. To be fair a lot of friends told me Shoal is better than Pt Chev.

  My day started I am looking a place where I can fix my 12 meters Dice, a friend gave me three places where I can fix it, Nautilus Sail, Wings and Waves and KiteWorks. I tried first Nautilus because it is close to my house, but they were close, next close to my house was Wings and Waves, I meet Ruben and he was very nice and he fixed the cut on the same time, I just waiting a little and I had the 12 meters ready to go. When I was going back home Jordan call me and told he was going to Pt Chev, I was keen to go to Shoal because the tide was almost perfect and will not be too many people there, but I never kite Pt Chev and this was a opportunity.

  I grab my gear and head to there. The wind was gust, doubt between the 12 meters and the 9 meters, I decided the 12 meters should be better, when I was going to the water a gust hit me and I almost get back to pump the 9, but Jordan told me the wind will die again. He was right, the wind was very gust. I could ride because the 12 meters was overpowered in the gust but was on the limit when the wind dropped.

  I don't have much to say about the place, is not fair say something when you only kite there once, but Pt Chev is on the bottom of my list. I didn't like anything about there, is not beautiful, is gust, the wind was shifting direction and when I was riding going out the choppy was exact in front of you, very hard on your knees.

  The good is the kite is fixed and I ride other new spot.
