W/Ending 10th March

Postby JulezV2 » 07 Mar 2019, 18:13

A rather gusty and knackering session in winds that charts indicated 40mph gusts.

Broke out the old Renegade 3g 5m. What a lovely kite. For its size has a super range making it ideal in gusty weather as its good at absorbing those too.

Dumped it in the surf after catching too much air under my board. Tug of the top line and up she rose like the Mary Celeste. Phew.

Very surprised at how well an 'old kite' handled the conditions.

I can only imagine how well the newer ones fly.

Thanks to all that helped launch/land today: Team work supporting safety.

Nice photos Marc. It took me a moment to spot the board in the 1st picture. I saw his board literally flying & spinning high up through the air at one stage & no straps!

I reckon 11am plus before you can get in at Rest Bay, will see in the am but can't be bothered to drive to Gennith when it looks like it should be ok here anyway.
