AKSA flatwater session fun in the sun

Session 125, 6 February 2011

Kite: Noise 12
Wind: 15 knots, S
Location: Main Beach, Warrnambool
Time: 3:00 to 4:00 (1h)
Board: Cabrinha S-Quad

There was a "flatwater freeride" demonstration event on at Warrnambool Main Beach in the afternoon, after the finals of the ASKA National Titles were completed.  I headed out for another session with many onlookers on the beach.

The wind was a bit light, but there was enough to get going.  There were quite a few kiters on the water, but everyone was watching out for each other.

I came in after an hour tired but happy.  Ivan Salmon, who had been judging at the Nationals, borrowed my Noise kite to try it out.

There is good camaraderie in the kiting community here, and at the Nationals.  If you get a chance to attend one of these championship events I think it is well worthwhile.

 I took these photos from the beach and in the water.
