Got there at 6am, Claude rocked up next. Went out with 6.6m and AB+59, after a while got way over powered on that got 37kts which was fastest on that board. Was gonna go for distance but wind picked up and wore me out. Rigged up 5.9m and went out on AB+54cm wide slalom, quick Combo, but water was way to choppy, but top speeds done with the smaller gear. Well done Elmo!!!
Some big no.'s to follow today from Pinna;s SRM and MM. say more later.
Elmo was King of Hardies today, Well done mate, lot's of Heavy Hitters out there today, and you are back where you belong!!!!!!

Long day at the office today, very gusty day, with some quite powerfull gusts coming through with basically zero warning.
Absolutely stoked to finally get 40.00 on the dial Yyyyeeeeaaaahhhhhaaaarrrrrggggghhhhhh the muppet danced was danced with vigor
Unfortunately it was just a rogue gust and not repeated.
Stoked with my experimental +10 fin, got 5knots quicker than its earlier incarnation as a straight 36cm on second run, Smug mode.
Thought I'd got a distance PB but unfortunately I'd forgoton to reset the odometer fromprevious session.
There are some guys goiung to post some big distances today
couldn't quite get in to the groove today, didn't last a full 1hr in any session and was hoping for another distance PB, but just ran out of energy.
Great fun though!
Congrats to Evets for his 35

Decrepit here, (under hardie's supervision) checked Matts Alpha, Realspeed says 27.6 GPSarPro says 18.2. KA72 Speed Reader also says 18.2
An examination of the realspeed 27.6 track shows it to be a zigzag, not a gybe, the doppler and trackpoint speed graph have a big diversion here also, looks like the GT11 temporarily got lost, and realspeed interprets the coming back to gether as a gybe, but the min speed is 26kts max speed 29.
So I've taken the next alpha down, and posted for man of.
