Very nice first outing on my 2019 Isonic 63, Hour was looking to be a ripper but was skunked by a storm with 10 mins to go

|dr cam (34126km): |
Green Island, QLD, AU ` 20 knots for most of the session with super chopped up water .The odd crazy squall but you had to be lucky
Used the Manta98 Tribal sw 29 & evo 9 6.4 .
Wasted a lot of time working on an hour but kept falling in on the outside then got flattened by a squall at the 58minute mark -low on the run with nowhere to go .
Kel was flying on his new Iso 95 so I suspect has won the day in all categories !!!

Met Freddo at the local mud pit only to find zero breeze... So we had a gas bag while waiting patiently as there seemed to be some squalls out on the horizon.
Freddo decided to opt out, and I just thought bugger it- rigged up the Severne 8.6 OD to go with "Big Woody" Futura 124 and Venom 48. Squalls then came in and the wind went from nothing to ballistic in short stints! Way overpowered at times... Needed some sunnies with wipers attached when the rain came- hard to see, my face was stinging from the rain bullets...
Had a pretty decent stack after encountering some swell head on on an outgoing run- reckon I was lifted about 3m into the air... Needless to say the landing was no where near impressive as the take off!- quick stop at the chemist for some Voltaren Rapids was needed on the way home...
Regardless, it was still worth rigging up for even if it was a short sesh... 3 days in a row of sailing again- no complaints!
Pity you didn't get out there Freddo- guess I was a bit flukey with the timing (many thanks for taking the board down to the beach & making sure the vent screw was in place )... Got back in safely just when the wind dropped back to zero.
Great numbers again Capt'n Kel & Dr Cam off GI!
