Wind Direction: NE Wind Strength: powered

with: Ticiana (Hamish was there as well)

High tide, I believe was the first time I kitesurf in Cheltenham with high tide. The wind was not that strong and was shifting between NE and E. Pumped Dice 12 meters, I could go upwind very fast paying attention on the wind shifts. Was very choppy, I tried jump some times but was very difficult to me load and pop in the right time with the choppy. One of the time I tried jump I lost control and the kite did a loop, I was pulled by the kite and crash hard, nothing major but took a couple of seconds for I understand what was going on. After a while the wind start to drop and I was losing upwind and get close to the beach, until I need to stop. I start to walk on the beach to get close to the place I had start and my kite start to fall I tried to run to keep it flying but I decided land it by my self. All was well because the wind was very light, but the kite was on the opposite side and I couldn't pull the correct front line until I get to me split of the line. The week looks very good, NE till Thursday.
