Hello '13

Kina Road Nth, Taranaki
Windsurfing: Waves
12.30 pm - 3.45 pm Wednesday. January 2. 2013
my rating 5 star rating
Wind Direction: NW Wind Strength: powered   using 3.0 - 4.0m sail. Swell Direction: W Swell Size: mast Tide: Mid - Rising.

Epic Kina North break today to kick off the new year. Chunky mast plus swell and solid 4.0m breeze.

Started off the session about an hour before high tide with a break at the top of the tide followed by another hour and a half with the outgoing. Was fighting off cramps for the last hour but it was just too good to come in.

Dirk and Feran, two of the local boys, had the balls and local knowledge to head downwind to south break where there were some even bigger sets rolling thru. North break was more than enough for us tourists still throwing some mast high plus walls of perfection to drop into.

Good crew of locals including Chris La F, James & Charles Dinnis and the Wave champ Feran all having a ball and sharing waves with a good representation of wellingtonians including myself, Andy, Gary and Uli.

Best conditions were at the start and about an hour before coming in. Lost count of the wave rides but must've had at least half a dozen 5-6 turn monsters between the remaining rides over the session. Just to round things out i also had some big drillings and a fatigued jibe that resulted in a loooong swim after my gear in the impact zone.

Holiday in the Naki is now complete and ill still be happy if we don't manage to get another session in before heading back to Wgtn on Saturday. Ill be dreaming of those big drops and chunky walls of perfection for a few more nites. Ahhhhh.....

4 thumbs up!
