How'd ya get on mate? Hope you got out, and had a ride.
More time on the water
Yeah got out on the water, have been doing quite a few succesful changes of direction & my goofy foot direction is improving well. Sluggo's brother Chris was filming a kitesurfing segment for creek to coast with Jason & some hotty from the show mmmmmm very nice. Might have even managed to sneak myself into the shot, have to wait & see.
The only downside was there where stingers in the water & I got stung twice
painful but not unbearable, the upside as I said before was onlt 3 kiters on the water at any given time. The water was fairly choppy again but I'm also improving in riding through that as well
, when the water flattened out the wind then died but I was back in by that stage anyway. This summer should have it nailed & allways looking forward to my next ride.
Only 3 of us on the water & this mad frenchman almost cleans up my kite, I walking back upwind & he cruises past me on the upwind side so I put my kite low, I kept walking thinking he will cruise past me on the downwind side. So I put my kite at the twelve o'clock & he continues headin straight for me the lines cross & the kites allmost hit each other & I lose my footing. So I'm madly trying to move backwards & he's of his board but still coming towards me, he eventually stops, moves downwind & we separated the two kites without an incident
crazy frenchmen LOL.
