The wind coming in from the west combined with a very high tide made for s narrow beach. So I had to go for s shorter line set than planned. No worries! I hooked the vented A-Quad to a 10m (30ft) line set and got going.
Yup! Windy indeed, but both the kite and yours truly were up for the conditions. Thankfully it was a pretty warm September evening so it didn’t take long until we both – myself and my kite that is – was warmed up and ready to have some fun together!
At this little beach, there is a small pier and today the wind direction was perfect for flying off that pier. Quite narrow though, so I had to watch my steps. (Made it! I didn’t fall in!😉)
I was practicing flat axels. Perhaps not the easiest thing to do in the current conditions, however even more rewarding when nailing them. …and I did!
No way near a 💯 % hit rate, but after some trying and failing I found a technique that worked. And as always, they were easier to with my stronger arm than using my weaker!
By using a combination of body language, arms movement and setting up the kite correctly, I started to get s good hang of it, pulling those flat axels by the number.
…and off course I blended in a bit of freestyles flying too!
