Melville Beach, WA, AU

A beautiful afternoon in flat shallow water. Got a second best speed so very happy.

Xfire 80, Koncept 5.8 and 25 weedy.

Melville Beach, WA, AU

Quick after work sesh at Melville.  Got on the water a bit late, just after 5, so I missed the best of the breeze.  Hence a bit underdone on the M112 + 7.0 TR9 + 34 carbon CF combo, but I found a few nice gusts.

Pretty good for Melville Cool

Safety Bay, WA, AU

Epic day at SB with Geoff and Slowy.

Rigged the 6.6 as it was only about 18 knots when I hit the water at 1pm, 4 hours later it was gusting to 30 knots, heaps of power down the run. Love the wind range of these GPS sails.

Super fun sling-shotting around the dredger's western buoy, then going deep down a pretty flat run, smacked the ground a couple of times...pretty shallow near the end Surprised

Geoff was smoking today on his F2. Well done!

Safety Bay, WA, AU - Early 90s F2 Sputnik, 5.3 Tush Lightning, 23 weed fin (reshaped).

What an awesome session at Safety Bay with Chris (Slowy) and Jon (JJ)! Smile

Felt pretty disoriented out there when I stood at the end of the bar (for the first time) ready for the speed runs. It was a great help having Chris and Jon out there for direction. I stood and watched them make some blistering runs down the strip before finally following their course.  Chris also advised me to take the sheen off a fin I had recently cut down and reshaped (worked well). Thanks a lot guys.

Very happy with the numbers today and still buzzing. Cool

Peel Inlet, WA, AU 85 Sonic, 4.9K, Elmo 24weedy

I had no intention of doing speed runs today, hence my decision to head to Mandurah. Once out on the water it became apparent that it was far too windy for anything else, but the floating weed rafts were a real hazard. I was rapidly running out of sailing partners as Decrepit went through his sail and returned to base and Hardie hit a weed patch and catapulted into his mast, but Elmo (you're always Elmo to me) came along to keep me company. Thanks for the support and coaching. Sorry I let you down by not going for that last run. After nearly coming a cropper at 32 knots with rogue weed rafts, and fatigue setting in, my intuition said don't risk it.

I got my first 30 on the Sonic (PB for that board) and went back for the Mistral expecting to better that by at least 3 knots. Sadly that was not to be.

Jeff was powering around through the chop and did a really good exploration of the estuary. I fear he may have discovered the rock garden too. I am terrified of that place! It is scarier than sharks!

I hope your neck feels better soon Hardie. Thanks for the company and advice. Sorry about the sail, Mike.

Had a lovely zen moment standing in the shallows while a ray languidly flapped its wingtips in and out of the water around me.

All in all, not what I had planned, but a good day. Top 5 results for 2 sec and 5X and a board PB.

Great session at Point Walter. 

Soooo flat, was always wishing for more wind on the run!

My dodgey repair on the 47 held up well, but still some sanding to do since the fin was still sitting a few mm out of the box. Maybe thats why I couldn't hit 40 ;)

CA SP47; F8 Ram 5.4; Lockwood/Curtis 23cm

Started out ok but then became gusty and s*** like Jake said. Pretty bumpy too.

Pelican Point, WA, AU



Jeff (12249km):
2948 days ago

Stopped in at safety bay just as the wind started but decided to drive the extra distance to see what MH was like. Was first on the water with 5.8 and CA 53 and that combo was pretty good all day. Wind just kept building. Was trying to improve my 2008 vintage Nautical Mile and managed to do so.

Changed fin down to the 24 and it felt sweet and got a 34 on the first run, but then got lost and ended taking a short cut  throught the rock garden. New fin not so new anymore. went back and sanded it down and it felt alright. I think I was just worn out by then.

Managed to make a nice Jeff size hole in the water after hitting some weed (I think) and pleased to hear that the audience enjoyed that.

A little surprised I didnt do more distance than 63 Km but I imagine it is correct.

My card wasnt in the gps properly so i had to use the navilink to get the file off and then then realspeed to split it to get todays. Happy to send it to anyone who wants to see if I have stuffed it up but as I saw the 34 on the display I felt it was probably ok and it looks like the correct place in google earth.

 

dissapointed my catapult was only 31 (looked at display after picking myself up).

Peli Point, WA, AU. Gusty and sh#t, more holes than a screen door. Weed everywhere and lots of traffic, so bailed upwind to majestic by myself. Bit of a meh session really but can't complain for mid river numbers. Maybe tomorrow.

Edit: body sore today Tongue out summer must be here!!

You did it Jeff! Whoo hoo! Well done!

Nm was Jeff's mission today but I really thought I'd steered him in the wrong direction when I saw how windy and choppy it was. Jeff you were going really hard out there. You have amazing endurance. You always amaze me how you rig big and just keep going through all the rough and gusts for hours and hours. I thought you might have covered more distance too, you just kept going and going. Well done!

I saw you heading towards me with the rock garden looming and I was trying to warn you but I guess you were concentrating on the water and not me.

Did you see me pass you on the freeway on the way home? I was glad to see you were safely back on dry land.

and a well deserved Jellybean too - you might even hang onto this one...

Jeff Congrats on your Naughty done the hard way through the chop way offshoreSurprised and that off may have only been at 31knots but you stopped pretty quick and made a good Jeff sized dent in the estuary.

Good fun

Thanks JJ. I had narrowly missed so many weed bergs I decided my luck couldn't last forever so I decided to quit while I was unscathed. That last run I just missed a weedberg to leeward near the end of the run. Thank God I didn't bear away more!

Fantastic team turnout and a good boost up the ladder. Well done speedsters! I look forward to seeing what you can pull out today. Work for me ...

Missed commenting on this session earlier cos I was packing for Surf Camp in Margies (with my 10 year old)...great few days down south Cool

Nice work Geoff smashing out some big PBs there at SB. Cool

And nice naughties by Grumpy and Hardpole Smile

Top speed JJ, very happy to hear that the dredging hasn't ruined the speed run.  I am hanging out for a SB mission, hopefully the next 25K blow falls on a weekend.

I packed my wave kit hoping for a Margies sesh, but missed out.  Surf lesson didn't finish til after 5 on Wednesday, when there was a 25K Sou'easter and nice swell running, but figured it was a bit late to head out in unfamiliar territory Frown

Thursday the swell dropped, and the breeze had a lot of east in it, so I didn't fancy trying to dog out in the lee of Surfer's Point.

Still great being down there and seeing a few crew out enjoying the conditions.  Got me psyched for a wave sesh soon Cool
