Long overdue first session of the year. Gusty conditions. Used the Freestyle bar I got with the kite but think I'd have enjoyed it better with the de-power of my Freeride or Fusion. Got mullered by a big one but kept the kite flying. Found my way back to the board and carried on. Sets got better as time went on. Too much for me with a surfboard. Will have to develop that this year. That said the Mako is a dream in the surf. Toasty warm and stayed dry as a bone underneath the drysuit. Hoping for more of the same over the next week.
