    started out with big holes, mellow full 4.8 :D , ending in megachop warfare upwind sailing not daring to jump :oops: 4.8 out/downhauled to 3.5 position; not a hate/loop day, more like increasing fear (of breakage and mom nature), 1 nasty catapult and 1 nastier shorebreak incident :? , no fractures; too much work and then wind nutso :shock: ugly shore with receeding high tide

    Sail 6 with plenty of excitement, no relax Wave 6-7 Jump 3 (survival)

    Sweeeeeeeeeet day all in all. Waves were a bit messy and wind gusty but got good jumps on both tacks and my two best table-tops ever :P. Love those port tack floaters into the next trough. Chop made for sloppy gybes but had a few nice clew first cruises down some bigger rollers on the outside.

    caught last of SW wind, a couple of nice runs, then veered W and went super gusty. Near voodoo chop. 1st catapaults in a year - only injury a split in the 5.8. Cruising to suddenly nothing fall-to-windward, then realize almost smoke (25 kt+) on going to waterstart :shock: . Come up verrrryyyy slow, feet way back! Sore arms from fighting the gusts. Garmin says 22 km sailed, max speed 39 km. Didn't land any jumps, too upwind and spun all of them on landing.

    About 20-25 kts when I arrived. After 30 min picked up to 25-30. At one point a rain squal came through and it was 30-35. Wind was actually fairly steady, better than Sunday. Wind came in waves rather than punchy, nasty wind. Wind was contantly shifting from SE to ESE.(Entrance wind sensor makes no sense says : 16-19kts while I was out)

    It was awesome!

    Most amazing thing I've ever seen while kiting: doing a big jump and coming down with the rain drops, mind blowing. Everything seems like it's in slow mot ... (more)

    If I'd known I could get the day off I would've been there at 7:30. Got on the water before 9 am on the4.7 in gusty but mostly powered up conditions. Sailed for an hour before it started to drop then rigged the 5.6- only got about 15 min. on that as it petered out. Dave stayed out on his 11.5m kite for anotherhour or so.

    Wind was quite Southerly so there was a large wind shadow on one side of the lagoon. Was blowing 20 and fairly steady when I arrived but quickly rose to 25 with gusts in the low 30s. Biggest jumps ever :)

    Tried friends new 'Tactile' prototype. Wicked board! Rode better than my board in the gusty stuff.

    Water had much more chop than I've seen there before, lots of whitecaps on the lagoon at times(normally butter). Insanity on the outside.

    Columbia was all time today. 5-6' ramps on inside, logo and larger on outside. Landed one backloop on the 4.5 and one on the 4.0. Waterstarted out of one more. Wave riding was high quality. Best day I've had windsurfing! Sorry to hear IV Chestered everyone - that bites. :evil:

    Never believe forecast for afternoon wind. Too late to Bazan, Bobson suckered me out for 2 hours of schlogging, pumped to plane a couple of times. Little puffs kept me hoping, but went to 0 at end. Tried Bobsons Fanatic 295 133 litre - nice light air board. Stopped by IV on way home, looked way better than Bazan, rerigged and went out - less wind than it looked, 7.5 barely planed up.

    a ho-hum IV day. Not very good waves today. A bit choppy then pretty flat as the wind died. TomB and I wimped out on forwards- truthfully, not a great day to go for it -- too much onshore (hey, it's alway "too" something when it comes to loopin :? ) should have done the drive to Columbia :roll:
