Ricketts Point kitesurfing in lighter wind with the lads

Session 435. Nice kitesurfing in a fading seabreeze at Ricketts late in the afternoon with the lads.  Stu S, Grant and Jop (with his son Luca) were there.  Luca is up and going like a champ!

My 10m Union kite was going upwind fine and I did some nice jumps.  The tide was high so the reefs were not a big issue.  The beach is quite narrow and there is a pile of weed washed up on the shore.  I was wishing I had my summer booties on but it worked out OK.

I am really enjoying the freedom and exhilaration of being on the water again.  A downwinder is tempting, but today was not the day.  The wind dropped out after 30 minutes.

The locals have it easy - bike to kite!
