Kitesurfing in glorious winter sun at Mornington

Session 378. First kitesurfing session at Mornington. The northerly was stronger here than at Frankston.  I arrived at around 4pm after another family bike ride.  Stu S, Stuart W and James were already on the water and the wind was good. Joy oh joy!

Getting off the beach was tricky - there is a reef at either end of the short beach.  I walked back towards the pier to get a better tack then took after in pursuit of Stu S who was exploring up the shoreline.  We kited up as far as Sunnyside beach past the mansions perched high on the bluffs.

Coming back we surfed some of the rollers. I headed towards the pier. Lots of mooring there so I didn't go in close.  Lots of fun in the good sized bay surf that was rolling in.  The next beach up had some good waves and the reefs were not so gnarly.

Great winter sun again - a golden yellow light.  The sunset was superb with the You Yangs visible across the bay in the distance.

A great spot, but not for beginners.

Getting out pat the reefs,

maybe you guys can even mention the beautiful flat water beach in Buen Hombre / Monte Christi, Dominican Republic. they have a little kite school running here, as it is a perfect place to practise Kitesurfing, as not much people know of this place, it is a still a hidden paradise Google for Buen Hombre or take a look at the website: said...
