Awesome southerly ditch day

Evans Bay (Kio Bay), Wellington
Windsurfing: Bump n Jump
1 pm - 2 pm Wednesday. March 17. 2010
my rating 5 star rating
Wind Direction: S Wind Strength: maxed   using 3.0 - 4.0m sail. Swell Direction: SW Swell Size: knee Tide: Mid - Rising.

That was just the best time i have had in a very long time indeed.

I was supposed to be meeting Leo, but he decided it was too windy for him, so he stayed home instead. The ditch was as rough as I have ever seen it in a southerly, which should have warned me that it was bloody windy, but no, rigged up a 4.7, and went out OMFG, talk about spanked haha, the pictures are from that run, which was completely mental.

Made it back to the beach, and quick as a quick thing I rigged up my 4.0, and headed back out for some fun.

The video is of that phase, I was still way overpowered, but at least I could hold it down, and have some fun, I was laughing out loud, slapping through the chop and having more fun than can be legal. Did I mention it was fun?

Bring on the harbour blast...

3 thumbs up!

Really? Is a southerly that much less at petone than the ditch?

the ditch is a big wind compressor ;)

yeah, i guess that's why I like sailing there, but it was about 30 knots average, gusting up to nearly 40, so I would have thought there would still be plenty to go around after I'd finished with it.

yeah, man it was the best sesh I've had since that day we were all out together on a sunday afternoon.

It was pretty hard work, though, every tendon in my right arm is still sore two days later.
