Down the line in Auckland baby!

Orewa, Auckland
Windsurfing: Waves
8 am - 12 pm Sunday. July 12. 2009
my rating 5 star rating
Wind Direction: SE Wind Strength: powered   using 4.6 - 5.0m sail. Swell Direction: E Swell Size: logo Tide: High - Falling.

Got a txt from Tony at 7:20 waking me up after a restful slumber. Litereally lept out of bed and hit the road. Almost had to rub my eyes when I arrived at the beach, cross shore about logo high and no one else there. The fact that no one else was there could have been due to what felt like sub-zero temperatures. Very hard to tell how windy it was out there but figured that it was 5.3-4.7, got a few gusts on the shore and thought I'd better rig the 4.7. Once again the storm had washed away lots of the sand that the Rodney District Council had been putting down leaving a 7ft drop down to the beach from the carpark! With high tide looming it could be interesting trying to get back ashore. Slow going getting out as it was very light but a few gusts and plenty of waterstarts later I made it. Pretty windy out back and I was glad that I chose the 4.7 Some very nice waves to be ridden and I was the only one out for about 1.5 hrs!!! I must have been putting on a show that everyone wanted to watch from the beach. Couldn't believe how cold it was, my fingers turned blue and I couldn't actually feel anything. Got slammed a couple of times but that rates up there with some of the best sailing that I've ever had in Auckland.

Nice footage. The lip on the wave Tony is lining up looks quite daunting.
