1 pm - 3 pm Monday. June 29. 2009
my rating 4 star rating
Wind Direction: NE Wind Strength: maxed   using 4.6 - 5.0m sail. Swell Direction: NE Swell Size: waist Tide: - Falling.

Sunday's session turned out to be best session I'd had in over a week. After rigging too small the previous several days, I arrived at Kanaha in the early afternoon and it looked like a solid 4.5. I'd sworn to myself that I would rig a half meter bigger than what I thought it looked like since I'd consistently been underrigging the last few days.

Well, the 5.0 was way powered up, which is what I like. 4.7 would have been a perfect call but I stuck with the 5.0 and powered up wind to some fun wind swell at Camp One. Some fun rides on my new Tabou Pocket 84. Stoked about that board. Super, super turny, making the backside wind swell at Camp One a fun little water park.

After a bit, a few fun there more kiters and windsurfers started showing up so I decided to head up wind and didn't stop till I hit Sprecks. About the time I got to Sprecks the wind started to feel like it was dropping off a bit so I decided to head back down wind. Some great open ocean rolling swells to ride on the way back down wind, stopping again at the wind swell at Camp One for a few turns.

A good long session to get nice and tired so the next few days of light wind won't feel so bad. Wind yesterday barely made it to double digits and we've got similar light onshore conditions today. Looks like another couple of days of light wind on tap before trade winds return from their break on Friday just in time for the holiday weekend.

2 thumbs up!
