Couldnt be buggered dealing with a smash and bash session at the beach, with super high tides, squally winds and rain, I talked B2 into a session at Tinaroo. Beautiful afternoon on the mountain. Typical Tinaroo weather though. One moment its glassed out and the next it feels like youve entered the bowel's of hell. But at least the sun was out for at least the majority of our time up there.
You dont go to Tinaroo to smash any of your GPS PB's thats for sure !!! Arrived, must have been 20 odd mins behind B2 who was already testing the water depth on my arrival. Down to 50%. Lyn's island is on full display and as the water level gets lower, its getting a bit of a stink as the decayed matter and mud starts to see sunlight.
Cracking arvo though. B2 punished an already suspect foot, which was looking rather ordinary on exiting the water. Still couldnt wipe the smile of his dial but. He was looking good, locked in to a few massive blast's that rolled through the channel area. Smashed it B2.
Used: WTSB72, 9.4 ODM2, Tribal Mk1 48 - super stoked. Great Arvo.

B1 made a great last minute call to head up the mountain for some flattish fresh water & country breeze. Ended up being a super fun arvo session, albeit all or nothing ~ 5-20kn SE/ESE with some decent bullets coming through the channel.
Nice to crack 30, although gybes were a non event today... Unfortunately the suspect left foot was giving me some serious grief no matter how hard I gritted my teeth. Just had no ability to put any pressure on the outside of the foot- fear more rest/scans/treatment may be in order... Shame as the rest of the body was feeling tip top.
B1 was also having a ripper time out on the water locking into the bullets- awesome viewing when the wind sheeted in, with white caps a plenty right across the Dam!
Such a magnificent scenic location!!!
We both were on the big gear, but could have definitely gone smaller for when the bullets came through!
Used the Jag 125, Severne M2 8.6, Venom 48
