Dumps, Ngawi
Windsurfing: Waves
12 pm - 4 pm Monday. May 26. 2008
my rating 5 star rating
Wind Direction: SE Wind Strength: powered   using 5.1 - 5.5m sail. Swell Direction: S Swell Size: head Tide: Mid - Falling.

First time out at Dumps and it was a great session.

About 10 of us made it over to the wave spots for WWA Weekend in Wairarapa, while another 15 or so guys hit the speed spot at Lake Onoke.

When we drove around the coast our first sight of the water didn't look promising, there was a small swell and glassy conditions. But we'd driven this far so we had to have a look.

As we drove further around the coast the swell built and the wind began to pick up. After a quick stop at Ning Nong we decided to drive back a couple of kms to Dumps that looked to have slightly bigger swell with a longer ride, and the wind also seemed 5knts more.

I rigged a 5.3m and put jumped on my 89l wave boards..... perfect choice for the day. Swell was head high with the odd logo + set rolling in. The wave was great fun with 2 main sections, the second would jack up and pitch out (dumps) and if you timed it right like Will did, you could pop off some HUGE aerials. If you hooked into a good set you could easily get 5-6 really good turns.

The launch was super easy with a sandy beach and getting out the back was a no brainer as you could just sail around the break no problem.

A bit more wind and it would have been all time epic..... Will definitely keep an eye out for more SE winds as this bit of coastline has HUGE potential.

6 thumbs up!

It was a pretty quick drive I thought - absolutely day-trip material. Did you get out on Sunday too?

Yeah... awesome session. We had a look on Sunday afternoon but wind / waves looked a bit marginal. Definitely worth the trip for the weekend and I'm keen on another roady.
