Icey blast

Awatere River Point Break, Blenheim
Windsurfing: Waves
12 pm - 1 pm Thursday. July 10. 2008
my rating 1 star rating
Wind Direction: S Wind Strength: overpowered   using 4.6 - 5.0m sail. Swell Direction: E Swell Size: waist Tide: High - Falling.

Forecast was certainly spot on as the first glimpse of the sea and there looked to be plenty of white water around. The direction was a little more towards the SW than straight S which caused a bit of a wind shadow in close to the beach. There was no proper ground swell either the only waves were what had been pushed up by the low that was parked up out the East. So not too much to get excited about but it was a sail anyway. Nasty bit of wind chill on the hands too. Was Gerry's first session at the ARPB and although not ideal conditions he definately is looking forward to getting over here again. Did manage to get some helmet cam footage this time although nothing spectacular. Will try and add it in the next couple of days.

Finally managed to get some helmetcam footage uploaded. First time I've done the you-tube thing so was a bit of a learning curve. Ended up saving the video footage in a very low quality setting to keep size down. Think I need some pointers to help keep some quality there, Chris would appreciate some tips for future uploads. If you could e-mail me on woggis@xtra.co.nz that would be much appreciated.
