It was a warm day and the 15 knot wind was not deterring swimmers - there were a lot out most of the way along. I did some nice jumps for variety using waves as kickers.
I had a go at kiting back and got up close to the pier when the wind dropped so I headed back to Mentone direct. This downwind run was quite different as I had to keep my board speed and kite speed up to generate maximum power.
I caught the others just before they drove off then waited for Grant to take me back to my car.
Great fun was had by all, in my case for 21 km! So good!
