After launching a beginner (whose kite was under inflated - a common mistake) I got going on the Union 10 and the Sector 60 board. I haven't used the Sector 60 for a while so I was keen to get on it again.
A great session! My first run was out to the shipping channel. I could see down to the Spirit of Tasmania and could see fumes coming out of its stacks as it prepared to leave the dock.
I then headed for Elwood and saw a kite in the distance. It was on Ozone Edge 10 and the kiter was on a foil board. He turned near me then headed on a similar tack. Nice to watch that foil slicing through the water - its like flying - and I estimated he was going 30%+ faster than I was on my upwind machine.
Coming back I rode some good swells. The Sector 60 turns well, better than I remembered. All that surfing on the Nugget has improved my turns perhaps.
Back in St Kilda the wind was softer behind the breakwater. I did some more good runs further out and a few jumps - possibly my biggest ever on the Sector 60.
