Time: 2 hours
Distance: 30 km
Location: Barra do Cauipe
Kite: Rebel 16
Lines: 25m
Board: Flyradical 128x38

Strong winds today...and there was no progression...somehow nothing worked. Tried a trick many times...but so hard to land...few times close...
Plus I added some tricks to the list which should be shown for sure...so we actually made a step back...
At least a new trick landed: Superman Slide Back 360. Cool one ;-)

The last days have been frustrating. Somehow the wind does not play fair...too much, too light...wrong kite...etc. No movement and the remaining tricks are just as hard as can be.
Plus light, angles etc have to be perfect as well...and Murphy always stays next to us and fucks up every perfect jump. Amazing how consistent forces are against this...and I just think I do something good? Just wondering...

Crash session! Somehow the angle of the wind was different this morning...and I did a higher longer 4 times rotation boardoff which landed on the hard sand beach...my foot hurts quiet a lot, but the conditions were good so I kept riding and could at least land few tricks, including a new trick: Double Tail Spin Pass.
Then my chicken loop broke, the leash went off, and my kite flew away...luckily all good!

Not much happening the last two days...fighting either too strong or too light wind. For the last tricks the wind has to be perfect to be able to land them. Forecast from Wednesday looks very good...I assume to move on quiet a bit on these days. Keep fingers crossed!

Day 22:

Wind: 16-20 knots
Time: 2.5 hours
Location: Taiba Lagoon
Kite: Dyno 18
Lines: 25m
Board: Flyradical 128x38

Wind: 13-16 knots
Time: 2.5 hours
Location: Icarai Lagoon
Kite: Dyno 18
Lines: 25m
Board: Flyradical 128x38
Tricks to do: 50

We started really early in the morning to go to the Taiba Lagoon. Like 30 min we were alone...and then more and more people came. And none of the hard tricks worked we hope to get filmed there.
Then we went for an afternoon session to the Icarai Lagoon.
In total only few tricks could be done...but now I guess the biggest fight in my life started...the last 50...some of the hardest tricks I will ever land...
