Headed for the 13th Beach on the West Coast for a change of location with Mike. The waves were much bigger and punchy than the breaks around Shoreham and I found the SUP to be more tippy in the open ocean.
There was a good rip so getting out the back was not too difficult. There were some surfers - they were quite spread out.
I caught some really nice waves that were fast and powerful.
I had some big wipeouts too, losing my paddle one. I was looking around for it in the whitewash for a while before I spotted it washed up on the beach.
Stopped for a nice beer at the Bells Beach Brewery in Torquay on the way home.

Session 508. The strong northerly had subsided when I got down to Rye at 1:00 pm. There were a lot of kiters out in the cool refreshing wind. I had a nice session on my 8m kite. I did a run down past the Rye pier and back. Really good to be kiting, just being there.
Stopped for a coffee and a late lunch in Rye, its good to see some shops and cafes open again.
