Sooo fun session!!

Postby tautologies » Mon Sep 17, 2018 5:32 pm

Oh man, yesterday was just the best. Clean set waves about 10 foot with a ton of smaller waves in between, great group of people and steady winds. Just what kiteboarding should be. I am so excited. Just one of those epic days of awesome kiteboarding.

How was your session?

I had an hour on flat water on my surfboard, just practicing moves...pretty boring. Then, after my 10 year old son's second lesson was over, I took him on my board and took him for a spin.

Put a massive grin on both of our faces!!

Life can be so cool.

Sounds great. When I have a "learn new stuff" session, I always try to include some of the known so I don't fail at everything haha

Had a pretty good session on my 21m S5, 11-13 knots wind. Had a bit of trouble self launching (was in a bit of a wind shadow), but once it was in the air everyone on the beach cheered. Hadn't had that happen for a long time. Wind and water was perfect for jumping (flat water and pretty steady winds). Got some good air time with several jumps at 8 meters/ 25 feet.

I think I am ready to try some board off moves next time out. :?:

After about an hour and a half my knees were hurting so I called it a day. Besides there were very few people left on the beach to assist in landing (don't like self landing).

Cheers! :D
