Kitesurfing tour Port Sorell - Tasmania trip day 4

Session 396.  After yesterday's rest day Tasmania delivered again!  After great coffee at George and Dave's cafe we headed to the Port Sorell beach and the wind was blowing.  It didn't seem strong so I headed out first to test it out, and yes it was GOOD!

I immediately started tacking upwind and made it out past Pengiun Island carefully going over the shallow reef at the point. It was a glorious day with sunshine and clear water so I headed off for a short tour along Bakers Beach.  It was a long way to the end of the beach then I returned holding ground.

Stu S was coming out so I turned around and did it again - this time peeking around the rocky cape before returning.  The wind was getting stronger so I cranked up the speed and did some nice jumps back near Penguin Island.

Port Sorell is a great kitesurfing location with flat water sections and a lot of interesting coast.

We finished at 2 p.m. then packed our bags on the grass and drove to Launceston airport in good time for the flight.

Its going to be hard to top this trip.  We shall return!
