"Threading the needle" at Southwick Beach


I finally got some useable wind at Southwick Beach. I took some video, and made this short, raw video. It shows how hight the water and how narrow the beach is.

That was the 7M NPW9 built by kitemaker4. Flying on about 30 foot lines. Max wind speed for the afternoon was 13mph(NOAA). I covered 35 miles with a max speed of 17mph.
