Brighton again with cool wind

Session 141, Saturday 30 July 2011

Kite: Noise 12
Wind: 15-20 knots, N
Location: Brighton
Time: 4:00am to 4:45
Board: Naish Haize twin tip

Some good wind was forecast for today.  Stuart and I headed down to check out Keast  Park near Seaford.  Its a nice spot with a reasonable beach for launching, but there was not a breath of wind.

Yet Fawkner Beacon was reading 15 knots!  So we headed back to Brighton.  There was enough wind to get going so we headed out.

A lovely session.  Cool but not too cold.  Squalls were passing to the north.  Good consistent wind, again better about 300m out where the turbo kicked in.  We went upwind to gain ground in case the wind dropped.

After about 40 minutes of great kitesurfing, the wind did drop a little with us 800m or more offshore, so we headed back in.  I landed my kite just as a light shower arrived.  Stuart came in a short while later.
