The air was surprisingly chilly so I wore my steamer. It was really nice to get out and ride some of the good swells and small waves on the beach. A couple of other kiters were about too.
Then it came in harder at around 25 knots. I did a few runs fully depowered then decided to come in. I pulled the safety so the kite flagged onto a single line then followed the line to the kite to secure it.
Stuart and James came in a short while later.
I was contemplating heading out again on my Lithium 9 but decided not to push my luck. Me right leg was feeling OK so I decided not to overdo it.
Some more crew showed up just before I left and headed out on smaller Airush Varial X kites. They were having a good time and the kites were handling the conditions well. I think I will demo one to see how it compares to the Lithium.
