Lyall Bay, Wellington
Windsurfing: Waves
1 pm - 3 pm Sunday. July 27. 2014
my rating 5 star rating
Wind Direction: SW Wind Strength: powered   using 4.6 - 5.0m sail. Swell Direction: SE Swell Size: head Tide: Mid - Rising.

Logo smooth, peeling, cross shore. Taranaki? Wairarapa maybe. No it was Lyall Bay. A very rare session indeed. Cannot believe I dithered for 30 minutes wondering whether it was windy enough or not. The whole time Troy basking in the afterglow of a powered session 20 minutes earlier when i should have been out smacking lips.

Eventually rigged a big sail and powered straight of the beach into the best wave riding I have had at Lyall this year. I was overpowered then underpowered and occasionally just right, however the wind direction and strength combined with the grunty groundswell produced a smooth grinding left hander breaking from the toilets into the middle of the bay.

After a shaky start, I had a blinder snagging wave after wave. I was quickly joined by a reasonable sized crew including the one and only Clayton Dougan. I was pretty reluctant to get out. However, after a couple of hours the cold eventually iced up my coordination and forced me in to dethaw.

Watched some pretty impressive, and no fear, riding by Esteban, Lawrence and William. Riding some big grunters right to the bitter end. Esteban you have come along way my friend!

4 thumbs up!
