Not so good

Wind Direction: NE Wind Strength: light

  Cheltenham - Dice 12 meters, twin-tip Jaime 136cm with: Ticiana, Bruno and Jordan.

  Not so good session, I get there a bit earlier than 5 pm get everything ready, jump in the water and have 30 minutes of a good session, not perfect because the wind was dropping a bit sometimes but was not bad. After a while Ticiana arrived and the wind start to have a bigger 'no wind' gaps. I need to stand and wait the wind come back, the tide was going up and start to be choppy, after a while almost everyone have gone, only me and Ticiana was trying to squeeze some tacks from the gusty. Bruno arrived and come to joint us, we new the weekend will be a light wind and we want to enjoy what we could of this session.

  I was ready to give up but Jordan arrived as well, I decided to stay a little more, at the end we were there more one hour, sometimes the wind was pretty good, sometimes very light.

  I did some jumps, but not much and not high as well, I was trying to keep my upwind and find a flat spot to jump was not easy. I was landing better and was getting the time to jump better on the 12 meters, but I still felling is something wrong with my load and pop, I fell the kite pulling me before I fully finished my pop, I believe I need to try other maneuver like a ralley to improve my load and pop.
