Funky NNE at Narra and a self rescue

Narrabeen beach, New South Wales
Kite Surfing: freeride
4 pm - 5:30 pm Saturday. January 28. 2017
my rating 3 star rating
Wind Direction: NE Wind Strength: powered

Wind: 12-15kn +/- NNE Swell: 1-1.5m E @ 4-10s Tide: L 0.3m @ 4:00pm Gear: 13m AE + 6'0 SE surfboard

Enough wind for the 13m. Went upwind up the beach and had a play in the waves nearer North Narra. Wind was a bit funky, varying from really well powered to underpowered. Wind totally dies at one stage and I could not relaunch the kite. Had to self rescue, drifting way down the beach and swimming in. After untangling my lines the wind came back on and managed to get back upwind to my starting point. Just as I came in the wind seemed to jack up to near 20kn which might have been a handful on the 13m. Fun session on the whole, except the self rescue.
