Takapuna - boat ramp

Takapuna
Kite Surfing: freeride
4:30 pm - 6 pm Sunday. December 17. 2017
my rating 3 star rating
Wind Direction: NE Wind Strength: powered

  Takapuna - North Dice 12m, twin-tip North Jaime 136 with Bruno, Jordan, Fabio and Ticiana.

  I get there around 2pm, Ticiana was foiling and Fabio was going to water foiling as well. The wind was light but very good for foiling. I thought to have a go but the boat ramp was very busy with a lot of boats coming and going.

 Later on the wind pickup a little and was enough for me, Jordan and Bruno try with the twin-tip board. We pumped in the ramp, and when the ramp was less busy we put the kites in the water and water launch. I use the yellow buoy and made a imaginary line where I should keep upwind of it, last time I kitesurfing here I had trouble going down this line. Was a perfect bet, Jordan was kiting under this line and lost all upwind stopping earlier on the beach.

  I did some jumps, but nothing really good, I could get some height because I was using the small swell as a ramp. This time I felt I was doing the load and pop better, but I believe I can do better.

  After while I saw Bruno going to the beach and I decided stop as well. Packing the kite in the beach was a mess, sand everywhere, I need to kite soon to clean up my kite.
