Kitesurfing Hampton in frontal wind, relief from the heat #520

 Session 520. Nice to get some frontal wind on Port Phillip Bay after a very hot day yesterday.  

The first half of the session I was powered up for some big jumps and the waves were building in size. For the second half the wind dropped a few knots and the waves got smaller.  

A good turnout from the lads and a good time was had by all.

Great kitesurfing in classic Hampton sea breeze with a tour to Green Point #519

Session 519. A classic Hampton sea breeze and tour to Green Point made for a great session. After a few tacks in nice bay waves between the rock groynes Anthony and I headed across to Green Point for some good wave action. There was plenty of water so the reefs were well covered.

I was well powered on my Union 8 so it was easy to tack back to Hampton where more kiters were on the water.  Nice sunny warm weather, warm water and a good stiff sea breeze - summer is here!

Kitesurfing at Waratah Bay in some nice waves #518

Session 518. Nice session in the surf at Waratah Bay with three windsurfers.  The easterly was a bit gusty on the beach but nice and consistent on the water.  There were some good waves to surf. 

A downwinder to Walkerville North would have been on but a car shuffle would be needed.

The waves at the beach close to Waratah Bay township are more regular and predictable than those at Sandy Point.

Very happy to get this session in before thunderstorms and 100mm of rain arrived over the following 2 days.

Kitesurfing the inlet at Inverloch - flat water #517

Session 517. I got a small piece of vegetation in my eye when we got up to see the first sunrise of 2021 at Walkerville. I couldn't get it out so went to Foster Hospital where a doctor was able to remove the small piece that was stuck to my eyeball. We were late getting to Inverloch where Stu, Tarren and James were out kiting.  

I got on the water about the time they were finishing up and had a nice flat water session on the inlet. The tide was going out so it was getting shallower. I didn't bother going across to the surf as I was the water might be too shallow in places.

Lots of kiters and people about having a good time in the sun. A fun session but I prefer some waves.
