I decided to go to test the wind for the others. I got going and was able to get my speed up but the broken waves were constantly pushing me in and I didn't have enough power to make it out the back.
I stayed on the same tack making ground on the flat water between waves then getting washed in by broken ones rolling in. I had to sine the kite and concentrate, but I made it. A couple of others followed and made it but several made the good choice to not attempt it.
With better wind the downwinders here would be sensational.
Adam and I dropped a couple of guys at the airport, said farewell then picked up a smaller car for the next week in Noosa - hoping to get more wind and some good kitesurfing.
