SAILORS: Peter J, Chris, Phillip, and Richie
DETAILS: What a day!
Richie SMS'd me this morning to say it'd be blasphemous to work when the forecasr looked so good. Ditched work at 9.45 am and headed to the Inlet. The tide had already started to go out just before noon and the eastern end of the strip was super smooth. Actually on the mid tide, the run wnet the entire length of the strip. Got my peak at the bottom of the strip when I got on a bullet and just kept going faster and faster!.....I ran out of room at the end of the spit and had to come off the gas but the board and rig felt great.
I made a few tweaks- mainly shortening harness lines and running with a waist harness which seemed to help me hike out further (maybe it forced me to hang off the boom more).
Peter and Chris rocked up along with Phillip, and we had great runs down the strip although teh tide had gone out enough to make the eastern end a bit of a gamble. Richie rocked up at 4.45 and was planning a session til the sun went down.
Totally magic day!!
