Kitesurfing ripping 35+ knot northerly at Seaford
Session 389. The storm force northerly blew all night and was still going in the morning so James, Stu S, Stu W, Tarren and I met at Seaford for a cracking session with winds 35+ knots.
We weren't disappointed, the wind was howling! I pumped up my Union 8 and lent Tarren my Crossbow 7. I used the second knot on the outer line attachments to get more depower and was glad that I did - the kite was fully depowered for most of this session. The Union kites have a great depower range and perform well in strong conditions - there are no surprises.
Strong winds means big waves so the surfing was good too, a big boosts were too easy and sometimes scary.
Overall a very solid session. Great fun, but always watching out for another big gust!
