I hate south easterliesUndecided Gusty, swinging all over the place and short crappy chop running in 3 directions at once. It was going from 2 knots to totally nuked tail walking acroos the chop and back to 2 knots again. Had a couple scary moments when fully lit and the wind hit me head on lifting the board of the waterSurprised

 

I broke a harness line at Melville and had a 3.6 km run back to Peli on the broken line. I now need lines 10 cm longer to match my new arms. (I was to lazy to swap them over)

 

I went all over the river looking for more consistant wind but it just wasn't happening.

 

Ahh well I guess it beats working

Very solid breeze over here today 25-30. Had a great sail at Sanctuary point, but rolling chop was too savage to head off the wind. Had a fun time trying to crank nice gybes in the flat spot. Had one with 31 max and 17 min.

Spent the evening there with Jemma and Arie and pizza from the spot up the street. Great arvo.

went out on the big gear was perfect to start with but became a huge handfull by the end of the day

was nice watching all the sailing out there today

had some smoking runs on that gear in some flat water today, far out the way this setup gets up and dances off the fin 25 knots feels like 34 on my other stuff

pretty sure was the fastest i've ever been on that board and fin

came in just as slowy, shane and spotty went out

nice to meet you spotty hope to see you out on the water in the next few weeks or somthing
