Windsurfing: Waves
2 pm - 5 pm Saturday. October 3. 2009
my rating 5 star rating
Wind Direction: N Wind Strength: overpowered   using 3.0 - 4.0m sail. Swell Direction: W Swell Size: logo Tide: Mid - Falling.

I thought yesterday was good..... well today was better. Sunny skies, solid 4.0m winds from a perfect angle and some macking swell.

Was a little sore from yesterday but had to give it a go... (thanks Kate). It started to look ok around 12pm and the early birds were out in big numbers, but I waited as I knew it would only get better later in the arvo....

Got down there to meet the late crew again, Diggers, Woo, Gary, Mangus and a few others and have a chat as we slowly rigged up... no hurry.

Hit the water and it was all go right off the beach. Diggers had his helmet cam on so it was "Kodak Courage" time and I tried a couple of forwards in front of him... not the prettiest attempts being maxed on the 4.0m... still loads of fun though.

Jumps were way up there again with Woo and Tim Haxwell going HUGE.

Gave myself a dead arm doing something weird while riding a wave so I decided to sit it out for a bit and take some pics. Diggers got close, Woo went ballistic and Tim was on something weird, he did a nice table top forward into a nasty crash landing, than a massive one foot forward crash that made everyone out there go 'eeeergh'.

Everyone was going nuts and trying all sorts of stuff. Its amazing what a camera, swell and sunshine will bring out.

Swell got bigger and bigger and the wind filled in even more as the session went on. At the end it was nearly too much to even get a bottom turn in and would just rip you rig out of your hands.... cool.

By then I had serious noodle arms and started to kook it big time. Went for a couple of rocket airs on a few biggies out the back before i called it quits... totally shagged.

Need a day off tomorrow even if it is windy.

5 thumbs up!
