my rating 3 star rating
Wind Direction: NE Wind Strength: powered

  Orewa - Dice 7 meters twin-tip Jaime 136cm with: Jo and Fabio.

The wind show up but was not that strong when I started the session, was good on my 7 meters, I could keep upwind but I couldn't feel the kite pressure to make a good jump. I didn't changed the kite settings to increase the bar pressure but I was ok with have less pressure on the bar. My problem still with the time of jumping with different sizes of kites, I am kind of comfortable with the 9 meters, the 12 meters my time is not right and took a while to get the 7 meters time as well.

  I didn't try too many jumps but was pretty good between the waves, a long flat spot, plenty of kicks and not too many people. I played a lot with the waves, trying surf as many waves I could.

  With the 7 meters kite I was jumping and the kite was passing the 12 hours and this was making me stop and fall in the water and the kite was losing pressure. I couple of times I losing totally control of the kite and the kite fall in the water.

  At the end of the session the wind pick up a bit and was perfect for the 7 meters, but I couldn't jump because I don't know wy but a bunch of people who was kiting close to the river mouth decided to ride where I was riding and I didn't have space to jump safe. Of course a lot of people was jumping but I don't have full control all the time I jump still and I don't want to jump and drop my kite on top or close to someone else.

  The forecast looks good for tomorrow and maybe saturday, let's see.
