DETAILS: Another great session on the Inlet. Got down around 10-ish and the tide was too full for any flat water. The wind was 15kts gusingt to 20 so I took out the Excite 110 and 5.9 Koyote. The wind died for about half an hour at lunchtime so I went up to the 136 SS. Richie rocked up and I was contemplating going up to the 6.6 Koyote but he said to give it fifteen minutes. Sure enough the wind filled in and the tide had dropped enough to make a run along the entire strip a possibility. Once again there was super smooth water down the bottom end and it was passabile on a 34cm fin right up until when the tide was at its lowest. The last few runs were done at the boat ramp end of the strip but by that time the wind was fading.
