Great Friday 18-25 N winds with 85 degrees and no wetsuit starting 12m. Building swell and great down the line fun. Didn't bother to get the Mako out of the van - the Duke was perfection for carving and slashing. Figured out a lot of timing and waves math this time and keeping the kite powered - even dropping in on wave. Moved to the 9m for second session and wasn't op'd as was starting to happen by mid afternoon. In all 5 great hours out nailing it. One good crash to highlight made me do my first kite loop and I will say the pull from it is something you won't be ready for. Off water at 7 - pretty beat. Wanted more though... Lex in July with a cool north is the bomb.
