Surfboard session at Orewa

Orewa, Auckland
Kite Surfing: freeride
12:30 pm - 3 pm Saturday. August 26. 2017
my rating 2 star rating
Wind Direction: NE Wind Strength: light

  Today the wind was light in Orewa, I decided to have a go with my surfboard Cabrinha SQuad 5'11. I really don't remember the last time I tried the surfboard.

  Off course was a kind of strange, I couldn't make one transition and was difficult keep upwind. The wind was really light, Pete was riding his Ozone Chronos 18m for you have an idea and I was on my Dice 12 meters.

 For the first time I use a leash with the surfboard and was much better, I could committed the transitions without be worry lost the board. I don't have much to say about this day, I didn't nothing special.

  One thing I need to talk about is my back pain, I don't know why but every time I ride a surfboard I feel a bit my lower back, maybe is because the body position on the surfboard put more pressure on the back, or the wind is light and I don't put all my weight on the harness or a mix of the 2 thing.

  Was not a fantastic day but was good enough, the plan now is watch more Youtube videos about surfboard transitions and try the surfboard in a flat water before go to Orewa or other place with waves.
