Board: '09 RRD Twin Tip 90         Sail: '12 Naish Boxer 4.7

This style of sailing here with large gear leaves me feeling always on the verge of injurying myself. Windier is safer.

Trying to decide what my largest sail will be...waffling between 4.0 and 4.7. People say keep a 4.5 for the coast, and a 4.0 for here. Seems reasonable to me.

It's funny how this 4.9 was my favorite sail not so long ago. It did the trick today, but of course felt a bit cumbersome. Old school monkeys and DW360s were my moves du jour. I got a bit cold in just my rash.

Morning session at the hatch. Not too bad, the swell was big considering the wind. Went to the Wall in the afternoon but it was way northerly. In hindsight I guess lucky to get what we did. West wind mixed with northerly gusts from a completely different direction. Had to sail off the wind in case the gust showed up to avoid being backwinded. Should have gone to Dougs!

The theory of relativity was proven today.

I'm always happy to be at the Wall, but the conditions were not as magical as usual. Gusty and very little swell.

Perfect temperature out. A bit up and down and weedy, but still lots of fun! I tried a vulcan.

Rigged big and got it on the downswing, but just enough to keep it going all the time. Some fun swell

Board: '14 JP 111 FSW FWS         Sail: '16 EZZY 6.1 ELITE

065 - Nice and flat and enough to stay up full time. Rigged at max and after two runs to SI#2 it shifted just right for the drop-off and sandbar both ways. By then there were only three on the water. Sharing the shallows with the fisher people worked out well..

Most went to the Wall, but I didn't have time so stayed at the Hatch. Challenging conditions (thrown once harder than in a while) meant not many on the water, so kind of a treat for a full powered 5.0 session with decent swell at the empty Hatchery. Got the best wind and it didn't last long.
