Brighton in yet another northerly

Session 150 Thursday 21 October 2011

Kite: Switchblade 10
Wind: 20+ knots, N
Location: Brighton
Time: 11:00 to 12:00
Board: Naish Haize twin tip

The forecast for some reasonable north winds looked better than nothing, so Carrado and I headed down the Brighton Beach.  There were a few kitesurfers out and the wind was strong enough for me to choose my 10m kite. I am glad I did, as I has to depower it occasionally.

Carrado headed out but was not used the gusty conditions.  He came back in and then rested on the beach.   I got some biggish air on jumps when gusts plucked me up while airborne.  It was sunny and warm too.  But it is usually a scary and unpredictable place to kite in a northerly.

Bring on the sea breezes.
