Fliteboard Sunnyside with two buddies, tried the Nano battery #23

I linked up with two fellow Fliteboarders - Dean (travelling, from Port Macquarie) and Ross. It was great to have some company. We chose Sunnyside Beach looking for some shelter from the wind. After a brief chat we got on the water and cranked out some turns. I did a tour up to Mornington jetty and back which was very scenic.  I then borrowed a Nano battery from Dean to try out in my Pro board. The Nano weighs 6.2kg compared to my Flitecell Explore at 14.5kg - it's less than half the weight. What a difference it makes! The lighter weight makes it much easier to getup on the foil and the b ..read more

Kitesurfing Hampton with the Union 9 and some good wind #582

First session on a new Airush Union 9m kite  I was able to buy a discounted for a good price. Airush have discontinued the Union model so it was my last chance to get one. I have changed my quiver from 6, 8, 10, 12 to 6, 9 and 12. This will be better for travelling and take up less room in the car. The kite flew well and there was plenty of wind. Had some fun in the bay surf at the beach and slalom turns on the rollers going downwind ..read more

Session 581. I tried out a Lithium 9m V3 kite that I have just bought second hand. It had good power but the kite was flying strangely when powered up - the canopy was folding a bit on the wing tips. I will check the line attachment points on the kite ..read more

Hampton kitesurfing not enough wind! #579

The wind seemed a bit light when I was getting ready on the beach but I thought it was worth a try. There wasn't enough wind to get going properly. I went downwind and made it into the beach dodging some reef on the way in - very glad I was wearing booties. There wasn't much beach to land the kite either but the light wind helped ..read more

Kitesurfing Augusta, Parry Beach and Albany in South West WA - trip summary

We booked flights, vehicles and accommodation at Geraldton for a kitesurfing trip. Six people came from Victoria (Dan, Mike, Garry, Tony, Anthony, Lee, Taz and myself) are three were WA locals (Gaz, Adam, Neil). The out-of-season heatwave with very strong hot easterly winds over Perth and up as far as Geraldton (our planned destination) resulted in a very poor wind forecast for Geraldton so we changed our location to South West WA where the wind forecast was much better. Day 1. Kitesurfing Augusta WA in surf and flatwater We drove to Augusta, arriving mid afternoon and setup for kiting.  ..read more
