The early bird catches the worm

Milford
Windsurfing: Waves
6 am - 8 am Wednesday. May 12. 2010
my rating 4 star rating
Wind Direction: E Wind Strength: powered   using 4.6 - 5.0m sail. Swell Direction: E Swell Size: shoulder Tide: High - Falling.

Once again it's windy on a weekday so my only option to get out is with the sparrows. Fortunatley they were all asleep and hunkerd down out of the wind so it was just me out there. Surprisingly warm in my Psycho and neoprene hat once on the water.

Unfortunately sailing like a complete kook after a week of eating too much food while on holiday. Managed to wench my back trying to keep the board on the water at one point but kept on sailing, turns out it's pretty sore once I stopped!

Got a few waves in near the beach/reef but it was a little holey on the inside so it was hard to do more than a couple of turns. The wave size got better as the tide dropped a bit. Launched into a big back loop but bailed as I started over rotating which was kinda fun.

Shame no one else was keen for an early one, I guess they were all leaving work for a lunchtime session, which was shaping up to be a classic rainy storm session at Taka.
