I did a few jumps, one of them massive, and landed them O.K. No backrolls with the surfboard yet though. I hit the shallow sandbar on one run in and took a nice tumble near the pier but I landed well. Fast slalom turns and some downloops were nice to do.
A downwinder to Rosebud would have been well possible today, but getting a lift back could have been a problem.
My left elbow (tennis or golfers elbow) held up ok. It is fine when flexed but I get twinges when it is straight and loaded, so I am avoiding that position where possible. It is certainly lingering on, despite some acupuncture and physio sessions.
I wonder how Rosebud was today - crowded I suspect. We only saw one other kite in this entire expanse of bay. We called in at Gnotuk Ave on the way back and there were only two kiters there - but the wind was gusty and sideshore so it was not so good.
Cesar is organising another Across the Bay to Conquer Cancer in July - this time in the other direction with a winter northerly. I am keen to give it a go.
Here are some shots from a Contour ROAM mounted on my surfboard.
