Wind like a light switch

Snells Beach, Warkworth
Windsurfing: Just Cruising
3 pm - 5 pm Sunday. July 17. 2016
my rating 0 star rating
Wind Direction: W Wind Strength: overpowered   using 7.1 - 7.5m sail. Swell Direction: Swell Size: nonexistent Tide: High - Rising.

Was looking forward to this session with lack of wind the day before. Rigged 7.5 with good lines on the flat water. Yeah this is going to be good.

On the water was totally a pain and annoying. A gust ~25 knots would hit you from a 5 knot breeze then as quick as it came it would switch off back to 5 knot. The gust was so quick that I could only get on the plane twice but with virtually nothing between the gusts the wasn't enough to get you to the next. Plus all that the wind was shifting SW through to NW.

Maybe next time will be better.
