|Graceman (1458km): |
JP SS Pro 100, NP RSSII 7.0, JP 31weedy->JP 37pointer
Never got this board dialled in, never felt entirely comfortable on it.
At times showed promise, in really adverse conditions from 18 knots to 28 knots and big gusts.
The wind seemed to fill in really nicely after I snapped my harness line
It was either layout Chris Adamson directly below me or bail out and monster harness flick.
I think Darryl had a great view from behind
Biggest harness flick for the season, broke a NP adjustable harness line (sacrificial)

94L Exocet Cross with 5.3M & 5.9M KA Koyotes
Thanks Nilss for rigging my 5.3M sail.
No tracks recorded, looks like the Garmins switch off recording when they go flat.
That might explain why Steve has been having problems

|Darryl (22001km): |
Gusty Melville. 6.6 TR4 isonic 86 30 choco
Thought i had missed the best wind when I arrived but a few good gust can through late in the day. Happy with the times, had a 40.02 on the screen but i knew that would be averaged down. To gusty to get good NM, all of them included a gybe.
|Scott (5272km): |
Used everyone's gear but my own today...... Thanks all!! The boom was mine!!
Isonic 86 (Paul 2ndwind - thanks Paul!), Severne 4.7 Wave (Bogdog on behalf of Jesper - thanks BOGdog & Jepser!!) and Choco 32 (Boddog) - Was keen to try the Paul's Isonic, but was a bit apprehensive with 30 knot gusts! Turns out the board didn't like the wave sail much (sorry Jesper), it felt very flighty and twichy.... Can I blame the tools????
Time to rethink the game plan - got my 5.4 Lightning out when the wind dropped a bit and things started to work. Board was stuck to the water and felt really good. Awesome acceleration and all twichyness gone!
Go Darryl - 40 knots!!!! Awesome!
|Nauli (17965km): |
Started with Lightning 5.4; iSonic 105; Choco 34, then later put up Redline 7.0
Difficult day...very gusty with big holes and changes of direction, not really condusive to anything consistent...then to top it off a big crash when I bottomed out on the sandbar...ribs are starting to ache...d'oh!
|Annika (2359km): |
Went for a quick blast at Hardies. Isonic 76, CR 5.1 LE weed 29. Too chicken to do the rock gauntlet so stayed in the lumps on the outside. Seemed to scare the wind away when I got out thoguh.... decided to bail for a wave session nearby. Powered on 3.7.... was good fun.
Awesome numbers Darryl.
|Windrider (12248km): |
CR5.1, IS50/24&26F1, then Sonic85/28F1&CHOCO27weeed. Up and down gusty Melville. Choppy at first but seemed to flatten out later. Fastest speed was late in the day on the 85. Spent the latter part of the day chasing a decent alpha (and failed ). Funny how the other catogories accumulated along the way. All in all a solid day across the range - glad I stuck with my 5.1
|Nelson (28578km): |
F2 SX 90L with 6.6KA Koncept & 5.9M KA Koyote
Also took the 96L Stoke for a run with the 5.9M & had a go on Annie's gear towards the end.
Had a good hour at the start but it's not showing up in Realspeed, need to do some more investigation.
Windiest day on the river for a loooong time, pretty choppy at times also, got messy a couple of times out the back
