Kina Road Nth, Taranaki
Windsurfing: Waves
10 am - 1 pm Sunday. April 24. 2011
my rating 5 star rating
Wind Direction: N Wind Strength: underpowered   using 5.1 - 5.5m sail. Swell Direction: SW Swell Size: nonexistent Tide: - Falling.

Day two in Taradise and we headed down early as the wind was supposed to ease later in the day, I hit the water first on the quad and 5.3 and quickly made my way up to the north reef to start tearing it up. It was great with the whole break to myself while everyone else faffed around on the beach. Scored some beauties in the gusty wind but the wind seemed to back off a little making it hard work on the quad. Surprised myself at how well I was managing to pick the waves, as I'm sure I was dropping into some of the bigger sets, around mast high at times.

As a few others started to join me I headed back in for a quick break and to consider changing up, decided that all I needed was a bigger board so busted out the boat and rejoined the boys. Definitely a lot easier catching waves with a bit more volume under my feet, even with only the 5.3 rigged. Seemed to be able to catch anything I wanted whereever I wanted which was sweet and started getting a bit more into it looking for the sections and trying to get my timing a bit closer to the critical sections, it worked well and things were feeling really good.

Decided to quit while I was ahead and on a really good high, starting the long trip back to Akl around 1pm so that I could get back in time to help with the bed time routine. Really impressed with Tony, Sam and Peter who stayed for most of the day before heading back north, they must have all been absolutley shattered!

Overall an amazing trip and Taranaki doesn't disappoint, shame the other Auckland crew didn't make it but then if they had we might have had to share more waves.

2 thumbs up!

It was actually kind of nice that more guys didn't make it this year. Got through a full double elimination (could have done more too) and there were enough waves for everyone to make complete pigs of themselves. sweet as !
