Peel Inlet, Liptons WA, AU

Hmmm, just another day Yell

Rolled up to Liptons, nice and windy, I only had my 6.6 with me and I was a bit worried as it looked too strong. Rigged up and hit the water and yep the wind dropped. So I walked and walked, every now and again trying to get going but weed too thick for my weedspeed, me thinking @#$% this shit. Roger sailed over and said he was struggling because lack of wind, also he had just had a big get off after hitting a weeberg. Decision made between us to go in but wait, the winds back yay, Rog who's obviously smarter than me said not a good idea with my fin, me being a brain surgeon said I'll be ok, just one run out and back. On my run back I was powered and loving it, weed looked ok no problem, then kapow, bang, blood. Over the handle bars using my head and gear combined to stop, off to the doctors, six stiches later and all good. Only good news, and what's really important in the long run, was I went faster than my mate, got to think about the numbers LaughingCry

CA SL87, 27 Tribal WS, 6.6 Koncept, a rubber but no helmet, it's in the shed. There's a lesson there kids Wink

Peel Inlet, WA, AU   Pat SL115, SCR 7.0, Swoody 26.

Not too much left to say. shallow, thick invisible bergs of snot weed. I whacked my head on the mast during my off but had my helmet on. got a bit of a stiff neck tonight but nothing too bad. Even though its spring cup month be very carefull out there with these super low tides at the moment.

I couldnt get upwind enough to get to point grey Mike but kind of glad I didnt.

Great terminal velocity Bob, your peas grew back a bit today, mad bugger.

LOL Fangy....awesome snot bubble!  Yikes Firie, at least the Doc woulda been happy not needing to shave your head before the stitches. I'm very glad that you're OK as the MM seems to be self-destructing recently. In any a sport, foiling included, it is essential to have a test pilot, an Eddie the Eagle if you will, to push the boundaries and to discover new injuries. You have done us proud. At least the helmet's unscathed.

I hope all the injuries heal up quickly.

Nasty Bob, glad you’re ok. I went over the handlebars twice at Liptons on Saturday and I was using a MUF Delta. Geez there’s been a bit of carnage lately, bit of a Mandurah Mob Massacre!

Sounds like Liptons might be a good place to avoid on low tides for a while

Some fab drone work by Firie down at the Nairns end of the run on Sunday. No wind but some nice piloting. Laughing

 Big thanks to Sludge for use of the drone - it would be brilliant to see someone get followed down the run from the top end on a windier day. I guess you would need to launch from the drone from the Creery carpark /Wamba Rd?
