A few runs on the new/old Isonic W49 speedboard until I noticed the deck pads peeling off.  Didn't want to lose them so changed to the 104 Falcon which was way too big for the conditions so packed it in early.  Can't afford an injury on the eve of O/S family holiday.  

North Ram 6.3

Fun arvo @ Primbee, NSW, AU

Carpark full when I got there. Hit the water with the 7.0 but then it gradually ratcheted up. Swapped to 6.3. A bit SW so made for good Nauti runs from the windang end. Water very shallow so had to wait for the tide to rise to get stuck into some bearaways. Still pretty hairy, with lots of weed bergs and loose clumps of weed. Good to see crews from all around.

Loft RB 7.0 then 6.3, iSonic W49, Home Brew 20cm Weedie.

Another sensational day at the office albeit a lot colder. Had a bit of everything today, very gusty and very choppy at the north and south ends. Great to see such a packed turnout!!! Have fun over the weekend guys I'll be thinking of you all while I'm at work...Frown

Late sail after work again. Straight onto the speed board and the 5.8 as I wanted to test two new G10 weed fins, a 18.5cm and a 17.5cm up against my normal 19.5cm weedy. Found the wind very on and off and not quite enough in the deep bear aways and it only got worse the later it got. The 18.5 was the smallest I could use today, but I can't wait to really power it up. Maybe tomorrow.

Tuggerah Bay, Lake Illawarra, NSW, AU

After working around it the garage for weeks I finally got to take the JP 155 for a demo. Almost impossible day for foiling but when I wasnt getting smashed on the 7m for drifting on the 5.6m it felt really well balanced with the AL foil. Cant wait to get out on a better foiling day for and go. Sorry (again) I didnt get oveer to Primbee to catch up with the crew. Congrats to everyone who had good fun session. I havnt abandoned my windsurfing buddies I just have very limited time at the moment. Hope to be a little less so come summer Cool

Love those Falcon's Witto!  Between us we have the 80, 90, 104 and 112 (give or take a year or two in age!) - should yield plenty of interesting comparisons.  

Well done on the PBs lads.  Glad to see Det finally pulled is finger out and starting ratcheting up the distance PB - that has been some low hanging fruit for quite some time!

Gotta get busy with the contact adhesive and glue all my deck pads down again but that ain't gonna happen before tomorrow's followup session so back on the Falcon 80 for the time being.
