Kitesurfing on the butter at St Kilda

Session 149, Sunday 9 October 2011

Kite: Noise 12
Wind: 18 knots, W
Location: St Kilda
Time: 4:30 to 5:30
Board: Naish Haize twin tip

Did a nice mountain bike ride at Lorne in the morning - with the wind howling offshore as a storms ripped through.  Alas, not much wind on the surf beaches as we drove home.  Back in Melbourne, the wind picked up later in the day, so I was lucky to sneak in a nice session at St Kilda.

I spent most of my time in the kiddies pool and in the small surf/swell inside the marina.  The wind was good.  I focused on upwind technique and a few jumps.  It wasn't too crowded for a change - there were  only about 6 to 10 riders out - and they all knew what they were doing.

One session away from 150!  Maybe its time for a big kiteloop . . .
