I rigged up my Crossbow 7, self launched and headed out. Its quite a feeling to be kiting over a 1m swell in a raging southerly yet feeling in equilibrium. Some larger waves were breaking off shore. I headed down to Green Point where two other kiters were enjoying the surf and solitude.
After a couple of runs there I headed back with a couple of tacks to Hampton. The beach was completely deserted so I self-landed the kite. It wouldn't settle onto its leading edge so I followed the front lines and grabbed the leading edge.
I stopped and Middle Brighton on the way home and watched several surfers enjoying the bay surf.
