Decided to get the board out today, but there wasn't enough wind for it.

Managed to get the launch right which was good. At the start I got the line ends in order first, then slowly unravelled upwind. Connected carefully, and only when ready to launch did I move round towards 45 degrees. Probably pulled a bit early, but got away with it because of the light wind.

The actual session wasn't great, a bit of body dragging and some aborted water starts. Need a bit more wind to get the hang of it.

Landing - tried a self landing using the quick release, worked well. Walked up to the kite, bit of sand on the tip, and unzipped the deflate zip. Kite deflated nicely.

So a good session, hope for more wind next time
