Wind Direction: W Wind Strength: powered

  If I need to choose only one place to kitesurfing this place will be South Head, this place is almost perfect. Some people complain about be far but I don't think this is a bad stuff otherwise there will be crowded like Shoal or Pt Chev.

  I get there 11:20, Fabio, Ticiane and Fernando was already there prepared to launch, they were going to the inner lagoon. I run to my car and pumped the North Dice 9 meters, Jordan arrived a few minutes late and we talked to go to the inner lagoon meet the others. I saw they going there flying the kites, but I thought will be easy if I land the kite and walk against the wind with it. I tried but was not easy, after a while I was so tired and I was only in half way. I saw they there kiting but I knew if I insist I will get there so tired I will not be able to kite. Jordan was not so keen to go there as well and we decided go back. I will try again when the wind is not so strong.

  The session was very fun, the wind was perfect for the Dice 9 meters, I play around did some toeside, toside-transition, I tried jump pulling the bar but I didn't get the time correct yet. I thought I was doing right but one time I believe I did right and a realise I was doing wrong. I tried to figure out what I was doing wrong but I don't know yet, I know this one time I went high and was easy than the other times.

  We kite till the wind start to shift to SW and start to drop a little, in the end everyone was very happy with the session. South Head delivered again.
