Starboard Carve 99, KA Koncept 5.8, Select 31, Wind, couple of gusts to 20 Knots. but most of the time.. 0-15 !!

Arrived to see sunshine and wind, it was a top day in the winter sun, but the wind died shortly after going out, should have changed gear but too lazy, it keep kicking just enough to keep me interested but not enough to sail much, three hours for 12k Cry

the early birds did better, fun day hanging out with the crew, and one Legend kicked open a esky full of beer and shared it around while we packed up.. thanks!

Maybe the last sail at Clayton channelCry.  1 last ditch to try and ride the isonic 50 speed board at clayton and do a nautical mile - but it didn't happen like plannedYell.  Early start after big night out and no wind on arrival.  It gave me time to take 2 boards and sail the 500m hike to the water's edge - i wont be missing this walk!!!!  I decided to rig the 5.8 so i could put it on the speed board and i was also hanging to try the 24cm c3 venom when it picked up - yeah right - should have rigged 6.6.  The wind was mainly 10 - 15 knots with the odd 18 knot gust - along with alot of 5 knot lulls.  Not the greatest day out and certainly not the way we all want to remember the clayton channel.  At least we did get a ride.  It was great to catch up with the crew and have a laugh over some beers and Tim has got some photo's and video.

One of the hightlights of the day was when Sam and me hoped on our boards and soon realised we hadn't put our harnesses on.  That would be okay but our car's were parked 1 km walk away - DOH!

Sweet combo. Everything felt balanced and life was good. Pity the wind didn't hang around - I was hoping for some distance today. Probably one of the last sessions at this great spot.

Cheers for the beers to the Hamood family! Smile

Drove over the hill on Grundys rd to see everyone blasting so I got some footage with the tripod, still a little shaky though with the gusts coming through.  I could see Sam on a 6.2 so I rigged 6.7 and took the 90 and 104 out.  When I returned to get the sail the wind dropped out so I rigged the 7.8 and took it out with the 134 to guarantee a sail.  Hit the water the same time as Norm and Dave and we had a bit of wind for a while and then it started getting real patchy with distinct wind zones you had to stay in.

A few 20 knot gusts came through and it was quite hairy at times on the 84cm board and 47cm fin, more of a slalom setup and I am a little rusty at balancing big fin lift.  Very happy with a pb on the big board of 34.13.  My 9.5 arrives soon so I am looking forward to even the light summer breezes. Had a short stint on the 104 when I got some head cam footage.

I'll be there Larko it will be great to catch up with you and the NSW crew again, hopefully you guys might get some wind before then, tomorrow it's going to blow it's tits off here i can't believe the wind we have been getting lately,Clayton is on it's last legs the water has started to rise the top end of the strip was already under water In a way it's great, driving 600km round trip is getting too much our lake here is only 5 mins away.
