Spring is back and I love it. After the winter kite session hardly existed at Lake Constance this past season, I am super happy to be back on the water again ☺
The Easter holidays I spent in Leucate, France with some friends. It was great escaping the rain back home and visit sunny France again. We had super strong and gusty Tramontana winds but a lot of sun ☺ A horrible accident brought back attention to me, how important it is to stay save will kiting. So always check your material and especially take care while landing and launching!
After Leucate I spent a week in El Gouna at the Moevenpick kite station enjoying the merits of staying in a five-star hotel while kitesurfing. When we arrived it was surprisingly cold but during the week, temperatures increased again. It was awesome having a week in warm temperatures to get back on the board. We also hit the new El Gouna cable but my arms we sooooo tired from kiting, I couldn’t do much.
So I had some time to try out the new C4s kites and I really like them. You still have to fly them very clean but the response is direct and the release is really good. This helps me a lot working on new tricks. I haven’t tied too many kiteloops yet but my boyfriend keeps on stealing my kite in heavy winds so I suppose they are still good in the kiteloop department. The relaunch in very light winds is difficult, but with some practice it’s alright.
Have fun and enjoy life!
