Coal Point, NSW, AU. 5.6 Hucker, 110 Naish. One of the my favourite sessions for the summer. Just perfect in so many ways, rig, wind, no weed, warm water and air temp, nice rolling swell for jumping, no boat traffic. Just awesome, bummer the locals didn't stay home, hope the stink was worth it.

 15-24kts SSW Buff Pt Budgewoi Lake, NSW, AU

5.7m OD - 80ltre iso 18cmm FF ( 1st go)

I didn't enjoy today..I wasn't in a good mood . It didn't help that I'd been to the dentist and half my face was numb..which gradually wore off to a dull ache..Undecided

 1st go of the 18cm FF ( cutdown 20cm). I love the 24cm and 20cm but something wasn't right today...I think it was ok at first but then started to spinout big time on port tack..ok for the bearaway but sideways trying to work back upwind..I gave Andrew a go and he had the same issue so i don't think it's me..Maybe not powered up enough to work ..? Anyway hopefully it can be sorted as i love those fins..

Pretty shallow..I could feel the fin touching at times planing through the shallows and hard to gybe ..Unless you really flew around you'd hit bottom .If you stopped and turned the board around it was hard to get going as you were bouncing along the bottom until a big enough gust came to lift you up..Undecided

 Still I did enjoy a few gybes although I'm getting a bit over sailing shallow water with tiny fins..maybe I need to stick to deeper choppy for a while so I can use a large fin..anyway crabby mood Wink..time for some painkillers and tea..Smile

Andrew , Pete, Milsy and I  , later Matt. I was surprised that not many people were there..it was flat in the shallows.

Marmong Point, NSW, AU

2018 Exocet RS4, TR8 7.0, JP 38 - Wind S 18-22 knots

Top after work southerly session at Marmong.   Great to get the new board out on the water and it didnt disappoint in the lumpy and powered up conditions.  Tail is a bit thicker than the old one which means it holds its speed through the gybe.  And of course a new board just feels crisper and faster because its new :)

Southerlies are the best!

Budgewoi Lake, NSW, AU

IS90 and 7.0 then F2 Speed board and 6.3

Started off rather light, then it picked up a lot and the 7.0 was too much, changed to the 6.3 and speed board, but struggled for the rest of the day. As it was just too patchy.

Still a fun day on the water

Nice speeds for the chop James.Nifty video too!

.I was thinking of sailing the lake in stronger winds but that means smaller boards..more time in the Water and all these sharks sightings....Surprised ??!!

Sounds like tommorrow will be too wet ? What' Marmong like in a SE r ?

Tony it’s a free website “relive” that hooks up to my Garmin watch account and automatically generates the little video. Also connects to strava if you have it. Yep RS4 jumps pretty well lol.

Nice profile pic Andrew..

I think I might have found the issue with the18FF.. A small part of the front tip of the fillet is bent under..It fitted tight but I'll flatten the tip and see how the fit is..hopefully it will then be as good as the 20cm ff Tongue out
