Back on the Water

I spent Christmas up in Tucson, and while it was great to spend time with old friends it didn't take long to get tired of the cold weather and all the traffic. While the wind hasn't been perfect, I have still gotten out kiting both days since my return and today and tomorrow should be okay as well. I picked up a couple of light wind kites on eBay to play around with and tried out a 19.5 M Cabrinha Contra yesterday. We had a lull in the wind when I decided to put it up but by the time I got out on the water it had picked up again. Russ was out on a 7.5M kite at the same time I was flying the 19.5M. It was smooth and controllable but nothing special. Just another big kite. I didn't dare try the other kite - a 30M Naish kite that I got on eBay for $100 brand new complete with bar and lines.
Lots of people on the beach and lots of kiters on the water. I like it a lot better than the years past when often it would be just a couple of kiters and no one on the beach. Water temp is still way above normal at 66 degrees.
