Nice southerly and some bay surf at Hampton

Session 262. James, Tarren and I headed for Hampton late in the afternoon.  Nice wind 20 to 25 knots.  Great session on the Lithium 9 and surfboard.  I spent some time in the surf between the two groynes.  I ended up on the beach once and had some difficulty getting out through the shorebreak!

I tried a Duck Tack off shore.  I rotated my body but managed to do a kite looped so I was yanked downwind off my board.  I think I need to keep the kite much higher.  Its not intuitive - rotation right around feels like the wrong thing to do!

Tarren had a go on my Lithium 9 and said he thought the power was good.  He did some nice boosts.  Its almost feeling like summer now.
