More epic kitesurfing in big surf at Marrawah - Tasmania trip day 2

Session 395. Another epic day of kitesurfing at Marrawah.  We cooked some bacon and eggs for a hearty breakfast in the shelter enjoying the great view.

There was a bit less wind today so I used my Union 10 which was ideal for the conditions.  Peter drove again from Wynyard to kitesurf with us.

We took turns lining up for the big waves and scored some beauties.   The wind direction was better too.

The waves didn't close out and there were gaps between sets so getting out was usually not too difficult.  Ideal kitesurfing conditions and another excellent surf session.

Towards the end of the session Tarren's kite burst a strut and James caught his kite in a wave and ripped it, so there was some gear damage but still big smiles all round.

We cooked up some snags for lunch then drove to Stanley for a bonus session in the afternoon.
