Lonely- only one on the Lake..lol's c 12 - 23kts SSE - SE Lake Munmorah, NSW, AU - gusty in close and a bit hard to work up but good out in the middle - some good ramps on port tack..Few jumps but on the best one ( decent height ) I stuffed the landing. Scary out in the chop as my board was a bit big + the fin certainly was.Canton has made me soft! Standing much too upright going into gybes in chop.ugh..
Yeehaas bearing off down the back of rollers.. 95ltre Tabou Rocket + 4.8m Hucker 30cms Tabou fin. Head cold + work to do so not out that long.The water is a lot warmer than Canton! Next time I'll launch from the carpark to the east as it will be easier to get out.Better angle + less wind shadow.
Marmong Point, NSW, AU
Choppy south/south easterly at marmong, gusting to about 20 knots at times. I was on the waveboard most of the day due to the crappy SE cross chop but it went around to the south a bit later on so I got out for a while on the JP 68. Nice to get back on the bloody water again!

Day 3 Green Island Nationals
Another early start and straight into slalom. Wind still looked decent so rigged 7.6 but couldnt stay planing down the first leg, so rushed in and rigged 8.4. Made it out in time for my next race and ended up ranked in the third group (out of four) which was an improvement on yesterday. A bit of a struggle at times to stay on the plane, but a few pumps and got going again.
Felt like I had half the Lake Mac team with me today - Using Steve/Andrew's old sail, Byrons old board, and Greg K's fin! Gear worked well thanks guys!
Forecast is light for tomorrow so no more racing until Friday. Will be nice to have a sleep in.
