Sweet late kitesurfing session at Hampton with the Flite 14.5

Session 349.  Another sea breeze. I got to the beach at 6:00pm with all the kites coming in, so it was time for the Ocean Rodeo Flite 14.5.  Plenty of power in the light breeze of less than 15 knots, enough to do some back rolls.  I got one on camera and can see why the kite back loops - I am pulling on my rear hand!

The big kite flies and turns well and goes upwind too, really nice to use.

The water was so clear I was checking out a reef on the way in and crashed the kite. After relaunching it I had to loop a few times to get back to shore.
