At Moonlight. Rigging 9m. Franklin 5.2.

Beach is twice as wide as last year. They trimmed the hedges at the trail head. More room to get a kite or sail to the beach. Portapotty is here too. πŸ’©

Sunny and warm out of the wind.

First session. Big kite. A little up and down. Chop is exhausting. Not much lift for jumps. Seems that I should be jumping way higher for the amount of speed and power I feel. Not a wave day at Moonlight Bay.

2nd session better than the first. Depowered the 9. Better jumps. Even some waves rolled in now and again. Comfy all day.

We are all done here now too.

Car was getting rocked by wind on the way up. Small kite. Franklin rigging 4.5 I thinks. No rain.

Too much on the 6 to start but could still hang on. Missed some waves in the process. Awesome waves. Wind was up down and gusty. Messed up the waves up as it progressed. Still some nice sections.πŸ„β€β™‚οΈπŸ„β€β™‚οΈπŸ€™

Everyone is done here.

Freakin awesome session at Pat today. Lit on my 9 the whole time. Could have been on the 6. Nice waves. Rock steady lifty wind. Big floaty jumps.

Thanks John for stopping for a peek at Pat. Had plans to go elsewhere until then. Was so worth it. Enjoyed the session with Franklin, Roland, and Mark D.

Went bare foot and hands today. It was perfectly comfy.
