The strongest day of the summer blew through today for the South Beach Slalom - unfortunately I had to work until 1pm so couldn't make it. Looking forward to stories of the carnage.

I headed down to Hardies where there were a few out enjoying winds that must have been kissing 30 knots. I was on 6.3 and this was definitely towards the top end of it's range. Also the Manta 49 and KA 23 fin.

Good fun and a little scary for me with some big weed patches keeping it interesting.

Foot still a little sore and swollen from a big stack 10 days ago - I have been wearing thongs and a suit to work all week!

Someone was going real fast today...Wink

Fantastic sail down at Hardies with some of the SRM and Mandurah Mob.  Decided to take out the 25 year old Precision Equip needle speed board - what a blast!!!  Very cruisy to ride and easy to control.  Koncept 5.8 and Whitey custom fin.  The board gybes like it is on rails - added 2 knots to my alpha!

PD and John were FLYING!

Its raining 40+s in perth today and one of ems mine yehaa

hardies with the others who chickened out of the slalom ,(i like to think of it as the more productive option)

I got the one hell gust in the flat which seemed to go on for ever (got a 39.54 500m out of it as well !)

Nice session at Hardies in what was undoubtedly the hardest seo of the summer!! 48 knot peak at Rotto at 8pm!!!

Norts and I had visions of an hour but after one third [exactly 20 mins] of the time we were 'tin fruited' [thanks Mineral for that one] but we had sailed a bit over 9 nm!!

The rest was a teeth clenching charge through the chop down the hardies strip - all my scoring runs were outside the outer markers - it was a case of sheet out and you will crash - you just had to hang in and go hard through the chop and you were rewarded wioth about 50 to 100m of reasonable stuff!

I used my new KA 23 Assy and it was confidence inspiring with the CA SP47 and KA Koncept 5.7 - this is a magic sail - such range and control!

Much respect to Slowey - magic stuff mate!!

Skipped the slalom to go to safety bay with the family, before heading overseas for a week. Thought Safety Bay would be a good option.Was stoked to see only 5 kiters and not many more sailors out. I soon realised why. It was blowing really hard and choppy as hell.  Only had the IS86 and CR5.9 as a rigging option so went with that and found the combination just a bit too much in the conditions. By 430 the wind was still building, probably over 30 by then and there was hardly anyone out (why am I still here?). Tried a few runs behind the sandbar into the pond but even that was incredibly choppy and rough The weedbar wasn't much better -  - just couldn't seem to bust through the low 35's. Disappointed with the numbers at the end of the day. Might have to get a smaller board. 

IS86 CR5.9 and FO weedy 28 (way too much for the condiitons). Also, results posted in Doppler from new GT31 but haven't worked out the Alpha calc just yet....

Congrats to the lads who racked up some great PB's today - looks like Hardies or WW were the go.

South beach slalom, overpowered from start to finish and not much fun through the chop getting hammered at every jibe mark , thanks to Bjorn and all his helpers for a well organised comp.

Speed sailing on flat water may have been the better option today and congrats to all who made that decision and nailed some pb's.

woohoo. Went to South Beach in the morning for slalom, but with a very clear idea that I was going to leave early to save myself for speed sailing. After crashing in the lead of the first final I decided it was enough and headed home for lunch. Better not to persist and break things, get tired, and miss out on a potentially epic speed session. So it was... Wallyworld was goin orf. When I got there Lao had already cracked a 40, and porka wasnt far behind.

Was tempted to rig a 7.0m since its never windy in Perth, but I saw a couple of scorching gusts and was keen as to get back on the 6.2m. Good choice I think. It was working great. Heaps of stable power for the bearaways.

I first did a run on an old 43cm proto (my first 45kt board) but was overfinned (24) and not at all comfy on it. So I grabbed the loungechair combo (SP53+KA23sym). Very hit and miss with the gusts, but that only fires me up for another go! Great to see some big smiles after some PB rain. Thanks Gem for the beer. It fired me up for another short session which was a 44 on the dial. The hammy, bicep and pec cramps at the same time as the sun setting and wind dropping hinted the obvious.

Mission for summer was to crack 45kts in WA. Well almost got there with 45.03 on the dial today. Also got a 44.9 on another run. Also managed 24 2sec runs over 40kts. Stoked!!! Perth's not so bad for speed after all.

Brilliant stuff Norts - a 2sec PB - and the 500!!!! What a corker - I only managed a 37.5 - you must have got a screamer of a gust on the inside there!

If only the tide had been a bit more friendly Hardies would have offered up 43s I reckon!!

25, brilliant speeds, I am in aweSurprised lining up latish water without weed with the stronger gusts well and truly beats me.

I watched you and Norts head out at 5.45 and you both flew at times, truly great speeds for the conditionsCool.

nice one Pete and John! Was torn between a mandurah mission and walter, but after finding some 37s on very average seabreeze days at wallyworld on the 7.8m and hitting a 39 wall at mandurah last time when powered up on the 7m, I figured with a few 30kt puffs at the right place walter was going to fire. Mandurah just gets too rough to be super fast. I missed a couple of cracker bullets by seconds today so with a bit more luck theres definitely more to come if we get another cranking breeze like that. Fingers crossed. It was SOOO nice to be powered up on the 6.2m for a change.

Congrats stringer for smashing out some PBs today. He was last off the water.

2. Big congrats to Stringer on a new PB - 40 is just around the corner now mate.

3. Huge congrats to Recycle on his long awaited membership of the 40 knot club - you have been hanging around in the dreaded 39's for a while now so we all new it was coming...and how about that 500!!!

4. Slowy - what superlatives are left to say about that performance?? Smashed the WA record and obliterated the 5 X 10. This is the day you have been waiting for! GOOD ON YA!!

5. Congrats team - we are nearly at the top! Now we need hours and KM. Sorry, can't help today as my left foot looks like it has just been produced by the Sherrin factory in time for AFL season 2010. Go get 'em!!!
