Kitesurfing in a rainstorm at Aspendale

Session 347. Some welcome rain after the heatwave and some frontal wind.  I arrived at Aspendale with a stiff 25 knots+ blowing then setup. The wind dropped so I had a go with my Lithium 9 but could only just get going. I did a run close to shore then walked back.  A friendly lifeguard pointed out I had kited through the flags.  Oops, I apologised for my total brain fade.

The wind picked up briefly and I got another run it but that was it.  All my gear got very wet in the rain.  Not much kiting but it was great to be in the water in cooler weather.

I stopped for a great coffee at Mordialloc on the way home.
