Brighton Beach, great to be on the water again.

Session 135, Saturday 21 May 2011

Kite: Noise 12
Wind: 15-20 knots, N
Location: Brighton Beach
Time: 2:30pm to 4pm
Board: Naish Haize twin tip

The reasonable northerly forecast came in, so I headed to Brighton.  It was surprisingly warm, but I still wore my NPX 3/2 suit and vest.  Booties stop the water jetting up the wetsuit leg too.

I felt surprisingly rusty after a couple of weeks off the water so I eased back into it.  The prospect of crashing the kite and a lengthy self rescue it daunting at Brighton in a northerly too.

It was very refreshing to get on the water again.  Life seems to slip into the slow zone with no kitesurfing.

Its nice in the winter sun with a warm wind and the water not too cold too.
