Any predictions on wind for the weekend?
Sunday looks decent, but I'm worried about Saturday. Looks like pretty solid outflow.
Thanks

The Spit will be windy this weekend. The lawn will be like a putting green between the two sandbars.

I don't think the reported 18 to 22 is accurate. Kiteboard meter is orange and red, signifying 25 plus. Rigging 5.0.

Great 12m session. Pretty tired at the end of it. Managed 100 jumps on the woo and my first unintentional but successful 20 ft double backroll.
Hoping for the same tomorrow. :P

Isn't the back roll something that occurs in ones forties whence the front rolls are well developed?

Nice day at the spit indeed!
Enjoyed.

I rigged the 5.5. Neatly trimmed the putting green between the two sandbars. It'll be extra cushy and smooth tomorrow!

All I know, when I start rotating in the air I don’t feel to good. LOL
Might be my 50’s when it sorts itself out.

As a 55 year old I can assure you nothing gets sorted out.
