Very cold kitesurfing at Aspendale in flukey wind

Session 450. A very cold for an early morning session.  The wind was flukey so I headed out on my Ocean Rodeo 14.5.  Plenty of power for a while but it was dropping right off closer to shore.  I had a break and chatted for a while until it picked up again and headed out for a second go.



The wind was better further out was good but I was wary of a long swim in. The waves were not huge, but it was cold and refreshing.

My 2mm Ripcurl Rubber Soul booties both have splits from the top and are not keeping my feet warm.

Tarren and I had a great coffee and chilli eggs with avocado at the Two Farm Girls cafe nearby, they have an excellent menu.



Then I bought some Ripcurl Flashbomb 3mm booties from Mordys Surf.  The thicker neoprene and flash fabric lining should make them nice and warm and the sole is not too thick.
