Started well on the iSonic 115, NP RX1 7.0 and choco 36.
Got the best alphas and speeds on this combo. Nice.
Got a bit too much later so swapped to RX1 6.1 and S-Type 93 choco 30 but was too tired to do much. Then gave toes a good stubbing and that was enough.
Pretty happy overall for 2nd session of the year.
Good to meet Bennie and Jay from Southsiders.

So, I drove from home to lunch in Melville, to north perth for gear to morley to drop daughter off at party, to Point walter. That was mission No1.
Saw the crew loading up on go-go boards and high 6's. Rigged 6.6. Troutty was out first and then the cavalcade of stars- Claude, Hayden, Slowy, Darryl, Mr Manta 47, Mr Precision Equip, Mr Carbon Art Vapor and me. It was Sandy Point folks!! Sails down on the run, waiting in line, close follow of the bank, Man it was smoking.
And then some flat water for some gybing. Few holes appeared like a cartoon bugs bunny and I fell into them, but it was great sailing!
Did I tell you I got 30 ? It was point and shoot and the gear did the rest. I was pushing for a higher 30 to make sure it was no fluke. I got 30 - did i mention that?
And to top it all off, a man in white with the sunlight behind him, flowing locks and bare foot- looking like Jesus handed me a bottle with an angel on it. We live in Gods country and I sail with Jesus or someone impersonating him with WA 119 on his sail.
30 knots - I am delirious!
and my NM had 2 gybes thats all right !! I am getting better at them !
