Kitesurf Lee Pointe West Bay
It’s hard to find a launch with easterly winds around this area. Lee Pointe on west bay looks like it has potential. With an east wind it’ll be a side shore launch.
Arriving on site and not a whitecap to be seen. But it felt windy on top of the bluff.
Rigged a 13M on the TT with a pocket park sketchy launch. Launch would have worked better with more south in the wind.
Had an hour long solo session, having a decent time carving, oiling and jumping when overpowered.
Overall a much deserved sesh with a rare east wind.
