This is an online blog journal of all my kitesurfing activities. I blog and log every kitesurfing session and provide information on skills progression, gear, weather and locations. I am based in Melbourne, Australia where we are blessed with good winds and some wonderful kitesurfing. I also take kitecam photos and video. I also record many sessions with a GPS.
Struggling for wind and Brighton and close encounter with the reef
Session 400. There wasn't much wind but I was keen to have a go, but even with my big kite and the Nugget I was struggling.
The run out seemed OK but coming back in the wind seemed even lighter. I headed in over the reef wishing I was wearing my reef booties. Eventually I body dragged with one hand on the board just above the reef, dropped the kite and packed up.
