Kitesurfing session at Brighton after COVID-19 restrictions eased

Session 507.  Kitesurfing again at last!  Headed to Brighton with a strong northerly blowing.  There were whitecaps further out so I took out my Union 8m kite and was very glad I did.  It was so good to be back on the water, just being there.

The wind was around 20 knots when I started. I tacked upwind past Brighton Marina with the wind increasing steadily.  Some big gusts around 30 knots were coming through so I headed back downwind doing slalom turns on the swell then headed in with the wind lifting sand off the beach. 

There were about 5 other kiters out, far from the madding crowd at Rosebud.
