    Another great day with Bernie joining us for a run. Started off as a 15m2 R1 kite day for me but the wind slowly increased and changed down to 13m to be more comfortable after 2 point runs. I'm wearing Lukin out. He has not gone this hard in a long time. Me too, the wind is just phenomenal. Every day from the SE and blows stronger later in the afternoon. Covered 1,300 kms this last 7 days (180.5 kms today) and topped out yesterday at 75.4 kmh on the 13m2. Rob's only just behind me on his 7m tube. He's smoking down the beach at lowtide. I was checking out the lady in the nice bright orange bikini and ran out of good area to turn at the point. She did offer to help though.

    Blowing again yesterday and my buggy back up to 93.9kmh and cruising the edge of the waves all arvo chasing Lukin. Great fun splashing about. Beach is sensational still. Even the water temp when I get it wrong with the wave timing is like you piddled in it. (Very unlike Esperance's 18 degrees water temp this time of year). We both returned drenched and worn out. As I cruised home yesterday I had a lady with 2 dogs waving madly at me to stop in front of Driftwood and when she come running up to me, I thought the worst. It was @Ant Mum. She gave me a big hello hug and spoke about how Ant is in Italy kiteboading. They are going over at the end of the month to watch him compete.. What an awesome surprise as she is a great lady. A bloke from next door ran down and asked to sit in my buggy while we chatted. When she said goodbye in Japanese the Auzzie bloke in my buggy replied too and then had a 5 minute chat to her in her native language. His wife was Japanese. So Ant's Mum went and caught up with her for a yarn. Good things happen with kites eh? Nice to catch up with Clive (just here for a spot "room inspection" ) and Bernie (cheers for the pizzas Bernie) last night and fix the problems of the world over a nectar or 3. Well the automotive problems anyway. Clive was driving back to Emerald early again today. The tide is now the only thing that's holding us back. The cycle of a 4.17mtr high tide at 9.38am, so soon as it gets down to 3 metres we are back into it once more. Forecast wind is back to 17 knots today and the perfect direction for more beach frolicking and point runs. It's bloody tough here!!!! Hope to have Bernie join us today on his weekends off and look forward to Andy, Bob and Goz in the next week to add to the tyre tracks along Farnborough Beach. Stay posted guys.
