Session 549. Stuart got out ahead of me then the wind dropped. I couldn't get going on my Ultra 12m kite so I waited on the shore. James decided conditions were too marginal so he headed home.
Stuart dropped his kite and drifted in to the shore about 500m down the beach. I was thinking about going back to the car and driving down to get him, then the wind sprang up. Stuart got going again and I was well powered on the 12.
The sun came out so things were good! It turned out to be a good session.
I find it difficult to go upwind with the Ultra 12m kite though even when I have plenty of power.
Maybe I am just so used to smaller kites (10m & 8m) with a slimmer leading edge.
