Pig out

11:30 am - 3 pm Monday. March 28. 2016
my rating 5 star rating
Wind Direction: SW Wind Strength: gentle breeze Swell Direction: E Swell Size: shoulder Tide: High - Falling.

2nd day ever orewa sup surfing on the bar.

O man made a pig of myself can't remember how long I was out... maybe 2, maybe 3 hrs... :) What a sweet easter swell, not huge but mean.

Went from Raceboard to surf sup, back to race board. Found this wicked point break and right hander, 3-4 turns+ , was mean!!! stoked Was a bit more sucky nearing to low tide and took a few steep drops on the race board to finish. some a little too steep, so eject, haha! :)

Swell dropped hard at dead low but sets were still coming in consistently. Perfect day for those learning.

Equipment wise, this is the most surfing I've done with the KIALOA Hulu Small 87 sq IN paddle. And I like it! The small blade lets you get a high rep, and still plenty for bracing and still has power. And the smaller surface helps with the top turn too. I've used the paddle in everything now from racing at Takapuna, to a 30knot downwinder on the Manukau and just can't fault it. I recommend it as a smooth paddle for everything (incl surfing), even if it is marketed as a race paddle.
