Metro South Sesh Good not Great

Ok, late to Metro but the rain did not happen. Got out about 4pm after rigging kite and winds started to rip so quickly rigged the 5.4 Atlas/84FSW for a run out to the Shoal where it was capping SSW 12-18k. An hour or so of good planing and I need to kite! However 6pm winds were 10-15 now inside and I failed to get any long rides just struggling to roll up and keep the kite powered. Very frustrating as all the others were working their kites and making it work. Got to get out in heavy air and work on powered kiting. The light wind stuff is too much work.
