Wind at last

12 pm - 3 pm Sunday. March 26. 2017
my rating 3 star rating
Wind Direction: NE Wind Strength: powered

Jordan send me a txt telling Orewa was with a good wind, 30 minutes later I was there pumping my Dice 12 meters, I didn't brought my surfboard because was too long ago the last time I have a good twin-tip session. The wind was maybe a bit strong for my 12 meters, nothing major but I needed to depower to ride comfortable. I didn't nothing special, some toeside transition, I was happy only be able to ride and don't need to think about go upwind all the time. After 30 minutes more or less, my thigh was burning, was choppy and I started to fall for nothing. We stopped and the wind picked up, for about 20 minutes it was too strong for my 12 meters and I didn't want to pump the 9 meters, was raining, all wet, better waiting the rain pass by. After the rain the wind drop a bit and drop a bit more, time to kitesurf again, this time the water was not so chop and the wind was perfect for the 12 Dice. A Lot of fun playing with the small waves, some nice crashes, but the wind slow down and was time to call the day. Nice day at Orewa, I hope more NE to came this year.
