If I see you on the webcam I'll know it's good to go.

Can I please remind everyone, just because the Lifeguards have finished on weekdays doesn't mean we should/can kite inn front of the lifeguard building.

Pretty disapointing watching those out right now, just one day after they have finished! :roll:

I didn’t go after lunch but was just thinking that the webcams are really good at showing people right in front of the ramp onto the beach.

As I left - around 4 ish there was a clutch of kiters way south due to lower wind and a slight cross on direction. This seemed to improve as the wind picked up.

Up until around 3-3.30 everyone was adhering to the zone rules. It is a little harder not having the flags out for clear demarcation, however it was obvious where one should turn as there were a larger group of surfers in the normal surf/swim area.

I managed to bust a fin on beach trying hard to get up to the North rather than blast through the surfers in an effort to get further out back. If you can't get upwind enough just do the walk - its better than busting out into the surf zone.

Otherwise a fun session.

Another short and sweet session.

I was pleasantly powered or lit on my 12m

Wasn’t difficult to stay out of the surf zone

Cheers to the guy who helped me launch on Monday. One of those timings when every one is out on the water and you've just rigged up. Either you were just coming in for a quick break or you spotted me and offered a launch. So much appreciated. ( Probably got in your way once or twice so sorry for that)
