Friday the 13th – If I had known

the forecast was mental as tropical storm abigail came across the Atlantic and smashed into the UK …Screenshot 2015-11-13 21.19.26

Forecast

So decided I would kitesurf – took down my smallest kite the 6m Best Cabo (which feels bigger than 6m) and a twin tip board.

The wind was strong but what was worse was the gusts howling in …. I was on max depower of kite with rail buried and one time I was literally lifted sideways and plonked unceremoniously 20ft downwind (sideways) at force.

The jumping was good – even with a wave kite that doesn’t really shine in this area.

could only manage 40min before I was wasted – back to the west end for a quick steam at the club.
