My Kiting Log

Sunday 26th February 2012 5pm

Ohope Beach

Wind 25 to 30 kph NW to NNW

It seems three months has become the regular interval between kite sessions over the last year, hopefully it will become shorter. Anyway, technically this was the first session of the summer, yet conditions were less than ideal. The wind was really westerly, yet I somehow managed to do the upwind return runs without too much gybing. The speed runs downwind were hampered by the buggy over-taking the kite, so only a 40.7 kph max speed was produced. With the wind a touch more on-shore I'm sure good speeds would have been reached. However it was good to get out there again.
