Shark Bay - BOO_Bays 20-25knts as good as it gets !!! At last after all the sessions I done here I finally got it, nice and solid with a 40.62 on the screen.. Absolute fantastic session with 1.30h window before the tide went up. 6.30 wake up, on the spot at 8, at 9 was 16-18 knts  wrong direction tide going down, then I asked the gods to help me to get there and in return I will....tell you later.

Setup 5.5 and said to myself this or nothing, setup Misty 47, 10.00 tide still going down, wind picked to 20-25knts up and swang... OMFG gaaaame is on... put away the 47 and got Misty 41 out... took off at 10.30, the way up was hard (5,5 has a wider clue that the 5.8 RS make it back hand a lot) but maaaan on run it was powerfull where you need it giving the bridge between the 2 sligshots (people that knows the spot will understand) where I got the fastest on the second shot. Very very happy after all the hard work.. thats 2 PBs plus a nice push up in the 10s WA table with 38,751 Cool, thanks Lao Wink

After a very conservative NM back to the car, I was very happy to made it save in one piece, and no stacks!! Mission Accomplished. Tomorrow a lite sail, and check of spot number2..

Misty41, E2_5.5 (what I needed to get there!) , Delta23 sawn off to 21,5 Wink

ps: Awesome Captain on the PBs I am glad it all worked out for you too Cool. Could be some more PBs I recon with the Perth forcast!! Look like Aussie land is doing good with wind

Ps2: I will be updating my last year PB of 39.95something because in fact its a 40.005, I was waiting to get a solid 40 before doing it so people does not whing thinking Sam cannot get there!

After seeing all that wind and PB's last week and not being amongst it, was finally good to get out on the water and blow the dust off.

A bit of bump and jump and a couple of dicey runs down the beaver but happy with the 2 sec and 5 x 10. 

Managed to stick a couple of gybes today too.

Went to change down to a 4.8 and realized i'd broke my tendon. Game over.

lake george magic, wind 25kts plus in gusts, fastest on Tr-7 5.9m nude 46 slindshot 21, felt overpowered in trongest gusts so changed to 5.5 m gaastra vapor, fastest on that was a 40.45, knew pb's were on today when wind picked up, so stoked, mission accomplished, now 3 days of driving to get back to WA, One Very Happy manCool

 

Edit: Wind gusts were in the 25 to 30 range

Wanna say thanx to Jamie, for hospitality, and showing me the spots to sail.

Great to Meet Tricky and Geoff, top blokes!

It felt easy, much easier than Shark bay, when I did my 41.67 on dial, I was expecting to see the usual 39kts on the dial, but both GPS's showed 41's, first time ever had 3 forty knot runs, could have got a heap more but called it very early knowing i had a 5 x 10 pb as well, wanted to live to tell the tale, and knew I had a 3 day drive ahead of me, just fucking STOKED!!!!!!

nice sail over powered just a tade by the end and the barge at the top of the speed run is annouing and the markers that are marking where the barge is they have about 2-3 meter of rope hanging of them which at one point slowed me down a bit  Safety Bay, WA, AU

Safety Bay, WA, AU CA SP50, RS Slalom MK IV 6.2

Yet another session on this combo, I cannot think of when previously  I have gotten to use my 6.2 so often.

It was a pretty bumpy day at the beaver tide was coming in and Rockingham Councils quest to destroy our speed run so the fisher bogans can get their stinkboats out to sea has commenced with a barge being anchored at the top of the run and a few new buoys being laid with excessivley long ropes waiting to send you over the front and munch your fin at the same time, just ask slowy, he hit the stern line off the barge and damaged his fin today.

Melville & Leighton

 

Reflex II 7.0, Mistral 112, Sting II 38

 

Same gear both spots. Went on a mission with Stroppo to post some Nm for the wa Comp. I forgot to bring my ruler and only just had long enough legs at Leighton. My fastest includes 300m at 15 knots trying to get rid of weed and the rest were just enough length.Yell.

Then did the dash to Melville.....I've never sailed in such gusty wind. More holes than a poor mans undies. Couldn't get 1 Nm of wind. Sailing into patches of nothing. Fun all the sameSealed

 

Big congrats to all the PB's. Especially the captain. Massive speed, well worth the drive.Cool

The Beaver - barge arse edition.

Took the trailer to work today to expecting a stonking seabreeze, after a interesting day at workUndecided left to drop a sail in at the Den of vice thought I'd try a different route to avoid peak hour on the freeway so I went Stock Rd, what a f'd up decision that was every light was orange and some I had a double sitting, neadless to say I was moderatley pissed when I got down there only to find that someone had parked a F'king big barge right in the middle of the sand bar at the beginning of the run.

Surprised that I could still stand up not all that surprised that the stonking breeze didn't eventuate had just pluged the mast base and fin onto my board and taken idown to the shore when I ran into one very lucky Mr Boat who showed his damage from tangling with the barges steel mooring lines at speed. After chatting with him with my cheery disposition I picked up the board ready to pack it up and drive home.

Fortunately for me Mr Boat's enthusiasm got the better of me so I rigged the 6.2 being ever the optimistUndecided thinking that it would pick up more and went out.

I'm glad I did, was having a ball out there with the Slow one who was on his 3rd 40+ session for the week, myeself I seemed stuck in the 35-36 range run after run, tweaking and tuning trying to improve the speed but to no avail, but that said it was a whole lotta fun, got the board floating nicely or in Slowies words the board was looking a bit happy.

Twas great fun, had the closest call with a kiter where I lost him in my luff tube only to have him apear just in front of my board.

Spotted something bigish swimming out of the pond less than 10m away from where we were standing, I'm telling myself it was a bg sting ray but suspect it may have been something else begining wth S.

Great fun, Thanks Chris for the encouragement.

Congrats to the all who scored some massive PB's today, well doneCool

Here is the shot of GT31 ... I forgot to mention that a 1h after I finished I mesured 28-32knts Surprised, and stil coming, shells flying on the beach!!!

YES the channel is for real guys, no bull, I walked it, but not to the end coz I had enough... 3ks back nd forward.. 1st part (photo is the startup) is 500 long oriented E to W, 2nd part 1300+ long oriented SE to NW!! Basically perfect for the S - SSW wind here!! I left the photos in the car and dont have many as I did not took the cam with me (dick) when walked it, only GPS so I could see the reality on google!! I will post some more stuff soon..

I am completely amazed with Joe and I together different part of AUS, 2 years ago we did the same when he sailed Streaky Bay and I sailed Sandy Point, was a double 40 that day too!!!!Surprised

Got to go, all packed, I may have another openning at the Left Breast Tongue out.. happy faking daaaays

Info on the Beaver Barge

At the moment the barge is there for core sampling (Not yet for dredging) http://www.seabreeze.com.au/forums/Kitesurfing/Western-Australia/Safety-bay-warning/

It is currently placed at the western end of the submerged sand bar about 50-100m away from the main sand bar.

There are quite large marker buoys at 4 points around the barge, DO NOT SAIL INSIDE THE BUOYS  as Slowy can confirm there are bloody great steel cables there anchoring the brage.

It is quite easy launching from the tip of the main sand bar sailing a bit up wind to get just underneath the markers then straight onto the run, there is a small windshadow but not on the main part of the run.

At the moment the barge is not realy an issue.

Fantastic PB Hardie, SmileSmileSmile I can still see that grin now, imagine what you could have done if you sailed more than the 27k's Wink 

So you liked my old secrect spot then a bit different than the spit and with more consistent cross shore wind,

 hope you had a good sleep at the Jimbob Hilton before the big 3 day drive but you where that amped I don't think so, would have been good to have a beer and feed at the pub with you but bloody work next time hey.

Cool Maybe I will get over there one summer and sail with you and Mineral.
