A very cold Petone

Petone Beach, Petone
Windsurfing: Bump n Jump
11.30 pm - 2.30 pm Friday. May 28. 2010
my rating 3 star rating
Wind Direction: S Wind Strength: powered   using 4.6 - 5.0m sail. Swell Direction: S Swell Size: knee Tide: Low - Rising.

I went down and checked out Lion rock, because of the buzz on deepfried,but it wasn`t much good for windsurfing,so I headed to Petone where I hooked up with Mike. The wind just started cranking up as I arrived so it didn`t take too much to encourage us to hit the water. Nice powered runs to and from the jetty,wasn`t as windy as last Friday,but it was still good fun.It started raining around 2.30 and the wind dropped abit,it was just too cold to be grovelling in between gusts ,so I called it a day. Looks like Sunday is going to be mega,after all the carnage over at Lyall bay I hope all the small gear is not broken. I attached a few pics of Lion rock,its the first time I have been out there,looks like it could be awesome with the right wind.

3 thumbs up!

I think Lion Rock is worth checking out if Lyall is totally over the top.... needs about 40knt SW to kick off.
