Kina Road Nth, Taranaki
Windsurfing: Waves
2 pm - 3 pm Friday. October 25. 2013
my rating 4 star rating
Wind Direction: NW Wind Strength: powered   using 4.1 - 4.5m sail. Swell Direction: SW Swell Size: mast Tide: Mid - Rising.

Typical day before comp conditions. Nuking all the way up the coast with swell for Africa.

Arrived to find two Aucklanders packing up after a spanking with too much wind. Woo, Uli and i rigged our 4.5m' s tho and casually raced down the beach to take on the familiar starboard tack mast high conditions.

First 2-3 waves were just magic. Chunky mast high monsters that you could do some nice top to bottom turns on. Then a front hit with pouring rain and it all turned pear shaped and westerly.

This was subsequently followed by a reasonable but not quite satisfying evening sail at Waitara. Smaller swell but only just powered on a 5.0m. Had a memorable long DTL ride from way out back connecting with the inner break for a good 10 or so hacks I reckon.

2 thumbs up!
