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.
