Melville Beach, WA, AU
WSW washing machine. 6.3m 95l TRIBAL ws25
Got there and it looked epic W-WNW and windy- thinking 40s were going to go down. Started rigging and got drenched. By the time I got the wetsuit on it had swung wsw. Arguably the least pleasant wind direction for Melville. Turned the regular chop into a washing machine. No flat water so went hunting in the middle of the river for between-the-swell navigable patches of water. Fastest four 10s runs in the middle of the river- surprised to see a 37 on the way in... water must have been flatter!
Good to catch up with the crew.

Short bash around at Melville beach. Gusty and choppy but a few flat spots here and there if you could nail a gust.
Only a few out - not very inviting.
