Saturday Pm - a great kick the rust off 9m late sesh on the Houting Carbon Mako. Sun and 36 degrees and dry as a bone when done. Nice waves too! Amazing on a SSW 20-30 how you get occasionally curling 3-5' waves - short lived but timing them right when they pop it's slash city. Heelside cuts were so good.
Sunday - more of the same!!! Op'd 1/2 time with 18-25 with gust to 35. SSW again and again sweet waves popping right in front of launch. Loved it. By 5pm moved to the 9m and amazed how I lost no power and gained turning speed and drift control. Smaller more nimble kite will work when it's 15-20 range while the 12 is more powerful it lumbers and no pivot or snappy turning. Plan this season is go 9 when its in between 9 and 12. Last one off water at 6 sun and 61 degrees for high. Great day 2 and solid weekend. Hope for much more of this to come in 2016.
