Session 9 of the 2018 season: Metrobeach Snowkite Session

Expected better conditions with the fresh snow but I found it was almost the same
as Monday’s session but harder to see with less sunlight.
Rode upwind to the spillway and discovered a possible summertime slick on the leeside of the marina breakwall.
Rode in to it to check it out and discovered a deep powder stash.
Downwinder back to the launch in light winds and finished up by 4:30. By then Craig was there wrapping it up. I would call it a better then marginal day with the wind, same with the surface snow conditions.
Several other kiters were also out today.

Gear:   11M Z1 
Surface conditions:   Snow covered with some thin spots 
Wind: WSW 10-20 
Weather:  22 degrees and mostly cloudy 
Highlights:  Rode west upwind to the spillway area and down winded it back
