Session 556. I was very keen for a downwinder and Brett was happy to provide boat support to get back to Cape Tribulation.
After a quick feast of delicious local prawns I headed off towards Cape Tribulation. The wind was strong direction was good. After a short distance I waited for the RIB then kited next to it. The surface was uneven with some chop.
It was much smoother in the wake of the boat - I was able to crank up the speed and keep up with the boat.
About 1km off the cape I dropped my kite in clear blue water then Brett manoeuvred to get my board and kite then we headed into the beach.
This fast and scenic downwinder was a highlight of the trip for me and capped off a wonderful day of kitesurfing.
