Should have stayed a bit longer. I got there about 2.00 and wandered about a bit - only one windsurfer out on a Hypasonic with a 6.5m and going nowhere, ever the kitesurfers with 17m were packing up.

But it was sunny and warm and even though the waves in the downwind bay area were only 3' or 4' they were breaking about 200m out from the shore and were rolling all the way into the beach. So I thought "sod it, I've come all this way I may as well rig 6.2m and 94l board and go and play in the waves even if it means I've got to walk all the way back up the beach a couple of times".

And guess what? The wind picked up, well powered all afternoon till about 6.30. OK direction wasn't great and 6.2m/94l aint my favorite combination but the riding was pretty good at times and I did get to practice my starboard jumping on the way back ( still totaly alien though )

Hopefuly get a decent day there next week.



P.S. What was WK like on the tide ?

Worse than that it cost me nearly 800, nearly an hour qeueing with the other million people there, a hernia getting it all in the car and the rest of the afternoon assembling the bloody stuff whilst the wind increased more and more rattling the windows just to rub it in !



go on tell me what a good sail you had

Oh dear - sorry Dave - i'm going to be changing the name of my weather forcasts to "Shawns notoriously unreliable weather 4cast" - so as not to give any false impressions.

If it's any help I missed out too - very average 6.5 day on saturday, then roped into sunday dinner on sunday, whilst watching the trees thrash themselves to pieces right outside the dining room window.



Bert - ikea - on a sunday!!? - are you mad!?
