10-20kts ENE - NE Coal Point, NSW, AU

 2nd go of the 85ltre Windtech magic bullit

Distance and 2 sec board PB 

Looked 15kts plus so I rigged Windtech with the 5.8m KA Kult with more outhaul this time. This made it pretty flat so I may have lost some low end grunt but the battens rotated and it behaved better in the patchy conditions.

 I've put a larger 23cm fin in. I don't think it's as good as the stock 20cm but it did the job.

Still not sure what I'm doing with the tail but I decided for earlier planing I'd give it a bit less rocker than last session. Actually looking at it now I had about 10mm tail rocker locked in. Probably lucky as it was pretty choppy. 

 Love it , Love it, love it!!Tongue outTongue outTongue out Still on a buzz this morning and that was after a session where I was only powered up occasionally in the gusts..

Although I would have been faster I would have hated it on my slalom gear.  It was quite messed up at times with some yacht race boatwake thrown in. I would have been bashing and hanging on for grim death.

I love being able to power off and take my time if I want. Rather than having to be on the ball when a gust hits me on the slalom board.

 The bigger fin allowed me to sail a bit more like my usual style although I think I'll finetune as I get better to unleash the early planing and speed. I'm getting used to leaning forward a bit as a gust hits and I bear off to get going.

The board has a 'magic' ride. It just floats across the chop.  Underpowered upwind I felt a few peaks but I expect that to be better once powered up. Rather than hating the chop I hardly noticed it , even washing machine cross boat wake.

I've been stalling it and flare gybing and even if I over rotate it's so well balanced it's easy to push the nose back off the wind. Tried one planing entry but stuffed it. I'll have to be careful to not get any more bad habits gybing..Undecided

 Because the wind was patchy and I was on and off the plane I lost a bit of ground bearing off to get going ( and just getting carried away..) but I still made it back to the launch ok. I think the stock fin is better for upwind.

I got more uphauling practise at the launch as it turned more NE (side offshore). Bashed my shin on something ( ow! ) big mark even through the wettie but I'm getting the hang of it.

I was a bit worried about buying the board as it's a bit out there and being designed for WA conditions I wasn't sure how it would go over here. I'm so glad I got it!

Best buy ever. It's going to unleash a whole new world of fun..Tongue out

Really looking forward to getting better with the board and having a good 20kts plus wind..Tongue out I could feel some of the old skills thinking about making a reappearance. Laughing

I feel like a beginner again - all the stoke and enthusiasm are back. Smile Tongue outTongue outTongue out

Great speed for Coalie Craig ! Impressive PB especially as you haven't sailed for ages.

It was impressive watching Hugh doing a planing gybe while cutting through boatwake..
