Awesome SE storm kiting yesterday, 4m and foil 20-25 knot gusting to 35. Kept eye on radar. Some rain showers but no Tstorms or major development. Nice swell and shit-eating grin!

Thought maybe repeat this morning but radar showing a bit more yellow and red. Glad I didn’t try for it. 50knot gust front straight offshore! 😳

Most annoying are freezing rains and wet snows.
They stick to canopy, quickly making it several times heavier.
Especially with foil kites.
If snow gets inside, relounch will be impossile.
