Definitely had better days. Wind was good the first half then tanked, then swung straight off shore then picked up.

Despite my best kite looping skills, I only made it to with 50 yards of the marina before the wind dropped & swung. As soon as my kite dropped, the wind swung drifting me off shore. As the wind picked up enough to hasten my off shore drift but not enough to ride, I pulled the safety and swam in.

Big thanks to Paul for grabbing a boat & rescuing my gear.

Not sure there's a lesson to be learned, nobody was kiting past the point before the wind dropped & shifted. I saw no indication of the upcoming shift. Just one of those days I guess.
