Epic Weekend. First day

Tora, Martinborough
Windsurfing: Waves
10 am - 3 pm Saturday. March 1. 2014
my rating 5 star rating
Wind Direction: SW Wind Strength: powered   using 4.1 - 4.5m sail. Swell Direction: SE Swell Size: head Tide: - Falling.

Hit the road at 6.30am with James, arriving to Tora at around 9am. At first we thought it was very light. But After a bit of looking around at a few spots south of Tora we could see how windy it was.

I rigged 4,5 and 75L, Others on 5.0s and wave boards. First few hours were at low tide which produced some interesting moments. While on waves at times there were rocks ether side of me. The wind was perfect Cross offshore which made some epic wave riding!

Esteban started getting his BBQ going after mid day. Which turned out to be a great success.

The first part of the second session was slightly overpowered 4,5. The waves got better too. Breaking for a long time. Near the end the wind died off but still i kept going. Getting wave after wave.

Awesome trip. Will be back again

8 thumbs up!

I was in Whangamata and the Chilllian dude who was sailing Tora with you then drove all the way up and was raving about this session... and he crashed out after sailing then driving for 8 hours! Hard core!

Hi I live down the road, would be good to know when you are next thinking of heading over. Is there a shout out on a web site when you guys are thinking of going? Would be so good to windsurf again with others.

Hi lucky you! There is a bit on wellington sessions( deep fried tv). But mostly Facebook and text.

Also people only come over when they know it's good. I could flick you a text next time me or someone is going over.

Also it's good that someone is close so we could get a report on the conditions if we are heading over.

Cool thanks William, no cell coverage here and don't do facebook, so deepfried.tv sounds like the one. Will keep an eye out for SW winds and will log on to deepfried with contact details when the time comes (stone age technology like landlines ). Thanks mate.. Going to have to get over to Plimmy sometime..
