Auckland Anniversary

Orewa, Auckland
Kite Surfing: freeride
10 pm - 12 pm Monday. January 29. 2018
my rating 3 star rating
Wind Direction: NE Wind Strength: powered

  Orewa - Dice 12 meters, Twin-tip Jaime 136cm. with: Bruno and Jordan.

  We thought have a session at Cheltenham because low tide will be around 12:30pm and anything after 9:30 am will be good to kite there, but Bruno went to Takapuna to have a look and the wind was very light there, we decided try Orewa, the surf camera was showing 16kts that means 14kts, enough to start a session.

  I get there, get ready as faster I could and ask one guy to give me a launch, the wind was enough to go upwind, the port tack I only could keep my distance from the beach and on starboard tack was when I get some distance from the beach. After a few of tacks, I was a safety distance from the beach and I saw Jordan we tack to the river mouth, there was really flat and nice but with 3 or 4 guys learning and in the way all the time. Bruno was kiting close to the Surf Club after the waves I went there and we have a good runs, I get some nice waves, jump a bit to the starboard tack, I am get more consistent jumping on this tack, I am not going high maybe one meter, but at this stage I am worried to get the movements right, and later on try to get more height.

  On port side I did some good jumps, I don't know how high I am going but I believe I am getting 3 meters relative easy, and with a kicker I bit more. I tried again back-roll and I didn't have success again, I did one very well, but I am forgetting to redirect the kite.

  Before went to the water I thought try carving transition with kite loop, but after I am in the water I forget it. but I believe this is a nice trick to learn.

  The wind this week looks good, let's see what happen.
