NE Slalom

Shoal Bay, Belmont
Windsurfing: Just Cruising
2 pm - 3 pm Saturday. January 2. 2016
my rating 5 star rating
Wind Direction: NE Wind Strength: maxed   using 7.6 - 8.0m sail. Swell Direction: Swell Size: nonexistent Tide: - Falling.

Headed down to Shoal at high tide for a little slalom action as I was waiting for low tide again in the evening at Taka. Couple of guys out on 5.0's getting some good runs and looking pretty over powered at times.

Rigged the 7.8 as that's all I had and had both the 68 and 59 to compare.

Pretty gusty but very windy and quite fun, the 7.8 has an amazing wind range. From just enough at Takapuna on the 31st to pretty maxed today in the gusts it can handle it.

Surprised my max speed was a fraction under 30kts though but that could be because I didn't actually ever go very broad. Good to see Laurence, Dave, Bern & Des come down too although they all went out after I'd finished. Got a few pics of them though
