Brutal day at Green with Cam, only packed the slalom gear as i was expecting 20 to 25Kts, not the 30 to 35 we had through the day.
Used, Isonic 80, Overdrive R8 6.2 and Tribal SW 23

Green Island, QLD, AU Gear Iso 80 2018 Tribal SW 25 Evo 9 6.4 /JP speed 50 Delta tribal 14 Evo 9 6.4 .
Great day on the island in 18-35 knots,a mix of sunshine & driving rain & some VERY shallow water .
I got on the water around 1015 & had some goals set but they rapidly went out the door -didnt expect it to be as windy as it was so ended up focussing on speed .
Wind was all over the place but managed to catch a couple of really good gusts before Kel arrived on the 1030 boat so had some good numbers on the dial.
Problem was the run in to the speed section-super rough as always so challenging with the 14cm delta fin & tricky getting any decent 10sec numbers .
Had 2 NM attempts-one with the 14cm delta -it let go at the 107 sec mark so missed that one /second back on the Iso 80 -super hairy/scary -tide had come in some so crazy confused chop & gusty wind .
Late session added klms only .
Again -a great learning experience & gotta say the tribal speed deltas deliver ...!!!

Port Douglas, QLD, AU' ' BIG KIDS FREE RIDE SESSION' Port douglas..Got down the beach after work, the mountain boys Ian and James were getting tuned up, james did a couple of runs and went in search of a small board. Ian did one run and did a sail change and went in search of a smaller board as well..I decided to rig no cam 7m on 105 Fox new it was gunna be a bit of an 'over kill' but wasn't sure if the wind was gunna stay solid..As it turned out wind stayed honking all arvo with some good gust of around 25 26kts..The mountain boys sailed realy well Ian was hard to catch in a very choppy sea and played hard till full time..James was looking very good as he always does i had a couple of good drags with him when some of the big gust came through all good fun..The FOX ' went hard all arvo and never put a foot wrong even when way over powered in a very chopped up sea..Was think about taking the Fox out the back and shooting it the other day for being a bit lazy in top speed..But looks like it lives to' fight another day', you get that some times'..I ran out of fuel a bit early as i had already done 8hrs hard labour before i got to beach and only had a coffee for lunch..Think everyone went home shaggged but happy.. Guess it was worth rigging up for..Cheers Ed..

Opted for a mid arvo short session at the local mud pit. Tony the truckie was coming in just as I arrived so we had a bit of a gas bag. Sounded like he enjoyed his sesh, so much so he said he might be back for some more action tomorrow!
The ocean was super gnarly, full of chop & swell... Felt a bit like I was on a motocross track! Wind was all over the place... made for some very tough going! + the body was reeling from a little over indulgence of footy, burgers & cervezas last night...
Normally try and keep less than a 10kn speed gap from Capt'n Kel & Dr Cam... Well that was near impossible today! Guess I just snuck in over the naughty! Amazing numbers guys!!! Super cool!
Most likely to give it another crack tomoz...
