Primbee, NSW, AU || W 18-40kts || 95 Rocket, Reflex 5.6, 22
A classic Primbee day! Sunny with the usual 20-30 minute lulls, but otherwise it was mostly just intense, dark bullets vaping the wave crests into white mist. The tide was dangerously low. It was down in the morning, but by 3 or 4 in the arvo sailing inside the log was out of the question with a 22cm.
And I'm extremely impressed with my new Reflex 5.6. Draft stability during the biggest of gusts was unwavering. Deep, deep off the wind is where it really shone. It just kept accelerating and I was only limited by the serious lack of water underneath me.
And the Rocket? Well, forget that it's called a freeride board. Even at 95ltrs it never felt too big even in the most monserterous of gusts. They're really special boards.
I always love visiting Primbee. So many great people to hang with - too many to mention - but Tiges gets a special mention. Great to see you mate and thanks for checking in with me. Much appreciated. Hoping to do it all again with you blokes tomorrow.
What a hoot!
