Kitesurfing Aspendale in strong punchy wind

Session 311.  Wild and wooly weather today.  We headed to Aspendale and were greeted by a decent bay surf and strong wind.  I took out my 9 and was overpowered so after a few runs I headed in, landed it on the very narrow beach and swapped it for my 7.  I still had plenty of power, but was now able to surf the waves, some of which were a good size.   James and Stuart were having a ball too.

The wind got stronger, up to 35 knots  and the waves got bigger.  We all landed and packed it in after a very solid session - assisted landing in strong winds is a bonus.

I took these photos after the session.
