Windsurfing: Waves
12 pm - 1 pm Wednesday. June 29. 2016
my rating 3 star rating
Wind Direction: NE Wind Strength: powered   using 5.1 - 5.5m sail. Swell Direction: NE Swell Size: waist Tide: Mid - Rising.

The forecast was for a NE blow and a NW swing in the afternoon and loads of rain. The cam showed the wind picking up so Windboy and I talk ourselves into checking out Taka but were not expecting much. We were greeted by Pete rigging up saying "Get out there quick" and with a solid breeze and some swell. Rigged 5.3 and trusty 87L Black Box and was nicely powered up. The wind was ENE and there was a bump to get a wiggle on and the reef started to fill in so we all hacked up there to get a ramp or a wiggle.

Pete was stomping some nice forwards on the reef right next to some kook surfers who thought it was good to paddle out in 25knot onshore.

Surprisingly fun sail on a dodgy forecast.
