Downwinder: Westhaven ----> St Helliers

Westhaven Marina, Auckland
Stand Up Paddle Boarding: Long distance
2:30 pm - 4 pm Sunday. November 27. 2016
my rating 4 star rating
Wind Direction: W Wind Strength: nuking Swell Direction: Swell Size: waist Tide: - Falling.

The forecast was for a cranking WNW so ideal for a downwinder from Westhaven to St Helliers. There was a bit of a crew that hooked up so we had about 10 launch from Westhaven. The wind was squally 20-35 knots and straight out off Westhaven there was a steep rolling swell to hook into. Got some great bumps there and then a flatter patch past the container wharfs. The tide was ripping in and by the time I got to the Tamaki Yacht club it was a slog into the current with very choppy water. Went overboard at that point as getting fatigued. The run from Tamaki Yacht club to St Helliers was great and scored some fast runners that got my 14' Jimmy Lewis on the plane. Great downwinder in full-on conditions! Jay filmed the session and I am on the white board in the first couple of minutes.
