Just come in off the water, or should I say blown off, mind you I could have
changed down to 3.3, but I'm quite knackered. 2 hours this morning in
classic cross shore 4.5 weather, superb faces and nice down the line riding,
probably one of the best days of the year, we even had sun, but it was mixed
in with some vicious squalls, the conditions for the South Coast were some
of the best for a long while, just makes a change to be able to head off
downwind riding rather than upwind, one run must have put nigh in 20 turns,
downside was took two long beats to get back, then had to do it all over
again. Used RRD 258 & Ezzy 4.5 wave 2000.
Then this afternoon, survival sailing, wind cross on F8 with my anemometer
recording gusts of 56mph, used Critical Section 250 with Ezzy Wave 2000 4.0,
with loads of downhaul and outhaul. Board was very sweet after I moved the
mast foot all the way back, the strength of the wind flattened the chop
right off between the waves which were coming in beautiful lines, which made
for some very fast gybes, both on the faces and inshore, what a day!!!!
