Waiting for wind

Orewa, Auckland
Stand Up Paddle Boarding: Surfing
10 pm - 2 pm Saturday. January 30. 2010
my rating 2 star rating
Wind Direction: SE Wind Strength: gentle breeze Swell Direction: E Swell Size: knee Tide: Mid - Falling.

I thought that there was a chance that the SE'er would get into Orewa today. And it did. Then it didn't. Then it did again. You've got the picture. So I went out on the SUP while I waited for it to make up it's mind. Choppy and sloppy surf so not great for this either.

While I was out the wind started to blow nicely for long enough for all the kiters to go out. I was just thinking that I'd better head in and rig up when it dropped right away and all the kites dropped into the water. They looked very sad just lying there. I managed to surf right over the top of one - how can I not have seen that - and found yet another use for the paddle.

But the real reason for us making the trip up to Orewa can be seen in the photos. A 5 star day for Calvin and sore arms for his Dad.

Then the wind started to blow from the SW and it looked like it could have been good at Pt. Chev. but I'm too sore from the SUP to cope with that as well.
