Shoal Bay SP105,29 Profin, 5.4 RS4. Winds 15 - 35+ knots

Overpowered today and I probably needed something a bit more flexible in the way of a fin since I just couldn't load it up in the chop. Some spectacular crashes trying to run off the wind and I even managed a wobbly gybe.

A lot of people out today with big smiles!

SW on Pandora Pond at high tide.  7.0 m, 117L, 29cm fin.  Rain had just cleared and the temperature was 10C... just warm enough to get out for a few runs on the pond.  I happened to time a gust just right to get this 31 kn 2sec., just behind the spit, then had to bail off before I hit the tip of the spit!  I had a few other 29 knot peaks, but just couldn't get it back up to 30.
