RemarksStrong seabreezes are back at last! Luderitz-like conditions today at Parham, strong, steady thermal wind and glassy flat water as far as the eye can see - speed kiting paradise! Temp about 30 degrees and water temp almost the same. The wind was so strong, the hardest part was to set up the kite and get it to the water 1km away. But once there, I broke my top speed PB without even trying on my first warm up run. And by the second run I was up to 90km/h. Unfortunately, I came to the spot late and only caught the end of the show, as from that point on the wind started to gradually drop off and the tide came in quickly and put an end to it all. Nice to see the Parham wind machine cranking again! :D
