Gusty storm fronts at Hampton - the right kite needed at the right time
Session 463. Very gusty south westerly wind after Saturday's strong northerlies. There was strong 25 knot wind at Hampton when I arrived with a squall out on the bay. Then the wind dropped out to less then 15 knots. I borrowed Rich's Switchblade 11, set it up and headed out.
The wind picked up again to 25+ knots, I was overpowered so I came in after a short run and swapped to my Union 8. Stu had a go on my Wave 6, but the wind dropped out again so we couldn't really get going. Kite selection and timing were critical today, I didn't quite get it right.
