When I left home, the winds were very light, but according to the weather forecast, it should pick up a little. So off I went!
When I got to the beach the wind was definitely not exactly howling. Nope, rather the opposite. A slight draft came along the beach and I didn’t bother to set up for KAP quite yet. I rather grabbed a light wind QLK and took it for a spin while waiting for that promised stronger winds.
After half an hour or so, it felt like the wind was on the rise, so I grounded the QLK and started to set up for some KAP. I first put up a Power Sled 36 on a 100kg line, but I had to work it non stop to keep it aloft. No way this combo could fly the KAP rig.
Then I switched to a lighter line, 50kg, and at first, things looked promising. But after a while working the lifter kite I put it all down and picked up the QLK again.
Before I called it a day I dug out a Peter Lynn Pilot Kite 2m² and that kite actually managed to stay aloft by itself! I decided to hook the rig with the camera attached and finally things started to brighten up!
I got the camera up there and managed to get a handful of decent shots before I had to pack it al up and head over to the stables. In the gallery below, you can take a look at today’s “catch”!
