Finally Jumping

Snells Beach, Warkworth
Kite Surfing: freeride
12 am - 2 pm Sunday. October 29. 2017
my rating 4 star rating
Wind Direction: NE Wind Strength: powered

With: Bruno, Jessyka and Gislayne. The forecast was not that good but we decided go to Snell's to see if some wind show up. The wind was very light, Blue Adventure instructor teaching 4 or 5 people and Bruno teaching Jessyka. After a while the wind pick up a little maybe 12 kts, and Bruno start to kitesurf and was keeping his upwind. I pumped the Dice 12 meters and get the surfboard because I had installed a action-cam support on it and I want to know how the images will be, but I forgot to install the anti-fog stuff and the image was bad. When I was kiting with the surfboard I tried do transitions but didn't work well, I could do a long run toe-side and when I was doing this I get to close to the beach the fin touch the sand, I tried to jump from the board to don't damage it but I was toe-side and I crash. The good I could control the kite and was not so bad, only my pride was damaged. After that I got the twin-tip and I start to jump, I did a lot of jumps, some I could land well, some I didn't carve enough on the load and I pendulum and crash. This was when the kite start to fall, but I could correct all the time. When I load right the jump was pretty good and easier. What I realise is when I was send the kite to early the kite pull me of the water before I could pop and this was when the jump goes wrong. I believe I was jumping 2 meters and one of the jump was a bit more. Target know is get 4 or 5 meters Jumps.
