Lorch S 83, KA 5.0. C3 Venom 26 Wind WSW 20-35

Another Windy, Square day at Goolwa, new C3 fin to use and have to say it was good, felt slippery on the first run but fast, which is what it's got ta be! felt more comfortable with the fin board sail combo as the day progressed. two PB's so can't complain. hooked into one of the bigger Gusts towards the end of the day, chocked the sail, only a 34 peak, that was it for me, time to head in, too tired/scared !!!!

good to have a sail with the most of the usual sailors, big smiles at the end of the day.

Carbon Art SP50___Loft Blade 6.2m____C3 Venom 26cm  wind 25-35

Nice days sailing,gear felt great used the Loft Blade 5.6 & Carbonart SP40 for a few runs but got all the numbers on the SP50 love this board 3rd time i used it and i'm wrapped with it's all round performance,it was abit of a lucky draw to get onto a broad enough gust but it was square for most of the day.

Good day on the water with a few of the demons including Choco and Hamma from Barmera.  Early start arriving at 6am with Sam - no wind.  Had a wake up beer and some port to stay warm.  Rigged up the slalom and speed kit hoping for some wind.  The wind picked up from the nw - not ideal - 300m squirts - took the fanatic falcon 89, 5.8m koncept and c3 32 venom for a spin.  Had some runs back and forth until Sam hit some coral. 

Waited a short time for the wind to swing and decided to take out the isonic 50.  Too broad too get on the course so had a walk back.  Later picked up and swung w - sw.  Not dead square but enough that you had to squirt into the chop.  Had some great runs along the bank and managed 4 runs over 40 and 1 over 41 - damn doppler.  Had a 41.8 on the garmin but seemed to be a spike.  Alot of happy faces on the shore after a great day.

Nice day down at goolwa with lots of people showing 40 on the dial.

Waited on the bank when I arrived for a nice gust and headed out on the CA44 with my new Caspar 27 and the RSR6.7.  42.55 on the screen and couldn't better it.  The Caspar felt great, like a slippery and sophisticated SL7!

Wind picked up but and it was a bit hit and miss on the 5.0

CA44 - Caspar 27 - RSR6.7 then CA44 - Caspar 25 - RSR5.0

My 6.2 RSS should be here in a few weeks and will be great on days like these.

Congrats to all, especially those with PB's!

Track Edit: Checked the track to put it into GE and noticed a better 10s run, there was a 40.83 which wasn't picked up before(?), I thought the 10s should have been better in relation to the peak and the fact that it was my first run which hugged the length of the bank.

Hey Snides, the Caspars are about the same price as the SL7's. Around $160 if your local will match Riks.  

I have only sailed this session on them but already they seem to live up to the dutch following.  I always used the Ka23 Sym on the CA44 but tried my 27SL7 a few weeks ago and it worked well with the 6.7 and felt more slalomy, so I ordered the 25 and 27 Caspar. I have more info on my blog page: http://www.whitelionwindsurfing.blogspot.com/ (2 articles)

I will post a review after I have had more sessions in varying conditions.

Well done on the PB's - were you wearing your bicycle gear? Wink  Hope to see you up at Green in a couple of months.

Congrats on all the other PB's also.

I reckon the SL9 may be the go, more control(faster?) than the SL7.  I have a 35 on order, will let you know how it compares to the SL7. http://www.select-hydrofoils.com/en/fins/pro-series/sl9/
