Windsurfing: Waves
4 pm - 5 pm Thursday. June 9. 2016
my rating 4 star rating
Wind Direction: NE Wind Strength: powered   using 5.1 - 5.5m sail. Swell Direction: NE Swell Size: shoulder Tide: Low - Falling.

The wind was a bit patchy when I got to Taka and it looked a but rubbish so gave DeanO shot about having 24" harness lines - sooo 90's.

The wind filled in so rigged 5.3 and busted out the 95L FSW in single fin mode. The wind was puffy so needed the planing ability. There was a reasonable swell pushing in and there were a few good walls to hook into. The wind steadied up a bit so switched to the 87L Black Box and immediately felt better riding that set up. Got a few front side wiggles in which was fun.

3 days wavesailing in a row in Auckland!

Nice one! I wondered if it came back when I saw a couple of sails on the webcam. Probably not good enough to get sicker for although the swell did look good

It could have been a classic session if the wind went NE and nuked - like in the olden daze - but hey - 3 days in a row! Why do we get ENE rather than a true NE the last few years!?...
