Post general kiteboarding discussion topics here!
I grabbed this snapshot on the Wednesday in question after playing a game with the hour by hour time lapse (how many kites can you find in any given frame). Knowing how long the beach is, why is everyone bunched together? What is wrong with the next 1/4 mile of beach south of this? No good peaks?
Wind can get a little lighter as you go down to sloat sometimes.
Also, more beach to self land and self launch at the cliff house and the parking is right there, you don't have to cross the road if you forgot something in your car.
Kites: 2013 F-One Bandit VI: 12m, 9m and 7m.
Board: 2013 F-One Acid 134x42 & 5'6 Fish.
Harness: Underwave "Imperial" vaccust.
Wetsuit: Underwave Sultan shortleg 4/3.
