Kitesurfing Hampton to the channel and return, a nice tour #525

Session 525. Another late afternoon session. I did a long tack out to the shipping channel and back.  Some sea birds were flying with me very close the kite for some the distance. There was nobody around out there, its a good feeling of solitude.  

I tacked back towards the Sandringham Marina then surfed the bay swell into the beach. Its nice to mix up the format sometimes.

Kitesurfing Hampton and Green Point in 30 knots #524

Session 524. Strong winds in the afternoon up to 30 knots. There was a good bay surf at Hampton and several kiters out enjoying it. The reef between the two groynes at the kitesurfing area was working too.  

I headed to Green Point surfing some big swells on the way there. There were some good sized waves on the reef break, after three runs I headed back.  My 6m Airush Wave kite was a good kite for the day, good on the waves and still able to get up wind.

The waves back to Hampton were good too.  I was surprised by how many other kiters for out - they were using 7, 8 and even 9m kites.
