Kitesurfing downwinder Ricketts to Hampton was a blast

Session 443. Back on the water after Norway. There was a steady bayside wind of 20 knots after the big storm yesterday so Stu S and I did a downwinder to Hampton.

I had plenty of power with my Union 10 rigged on the bottom knots and was also able to enjoy the swell and small waves.

The reef just before the HMS Cerberus wreck is interesting, and the wreck itself is almost submerged now.  The surf was best along Sandringham beach and the big rollers at the end of the breakwater there were nice. 

The joy of a downwinder, cruising, having a look around, picking the route and scoring some nice swell.
