This day there had to be an early session because of the tide and the wind should drop and turn in the afternoon, so we drove off at 08:25 and arrived at 09:00. Half hour later we where standing on the water.
The wind was not very much and the wave hadn't build up in the night. SO it began pretty flat.. made me decide to rigg big and I choose the 5,8 Steps his 12m kite.. good choice!!
It stil was a lot off fun because Steps and I where chasing eachother constantely :)
After 2 hours of chasing the wind picked up more for a second I thought of rerigging to 5,2 , but I didn't..the wind turned to W-NW and the waves started to build up more
The water rised a bit to so the shorebreak gave nice line of a small meter waves. Unfortunately for windsurfers hard to do anything nice. But I pulled some jumps and made some up-wind waverides
After 4 hours we where tired so we went back to the car and home...In the car I saw the wind had dropped also, so it was the right choise again ;)
Now the wind has turned to a full NW and picked up to 14-18 m/s with nice sun..but I'm too tired to do an evening session as well
Foto's are from the movie: the camera constantly had drops on it (from the rain) so the movie was not to good..(the drops where at the right spot :( )
