Booties, hoody and gloves and keep on riding!...

Anyway my stoke is from the unexpected session. forcast was poo, wind was switching cross on to cross off then lulling to 7-8 knots most of the day. rigged up my 13 edge and the wind pulled into a cross on 16-18 knots. Had a blast boosting off some waves. Even managed a downloop to down the line landing onto the next wave face a couple of times.

New fins are sweeeet and hold a good upwind angle and heaps of power for boostage.

Overall a unexpected and worthy session.

I am definitely back!

I was able to kite saturday, after a rib injury on Feb 17th. Since that date, I have only kited thrice, but saturday i started to feel comfortable and ventured some kiteloops (small).

Pretty stoked,
