20 Miles Kiteboarding At Wayside Park

December 28th, 2009 · 7:01 pm @   -  3 Comments

Had a cold but fun good session in the sound at Wayside park today, wind was highly variable, up and down between 12 and 19 knots from the NNW.   I would alternate between being fighting to stay on plane to being nicely powered.    I was on a Rebel 14 meter kite and split the time between a twin tip and a strapless surfboard.   It was cooooold, 45 – 50 F, I had to take a break in the middle to get some warmth back in my fingertips.  My Garmin Connect tracks are here.

    Ha! I love your one track that goes way out. Did you zone out while you were riding? 😉 Hope you had a Merry Christmas! We haven't been out riding for about a week now.

    Hey Meagan –

    Actually, due to about a 2kt East current in the intercoastal waterway, I was only really decently powered on a Port tack. I consciously went way past the shipping channel to try to make some ground upwind. But the wind was so up and down that I struggled on a 14 and a Nobile 666 132cm to hold ground (I’m all of 210lbs)
