Brilliant day at SB, very flat in between the waves. Not quite enough wind for the 5.3 Gator except in the gusts.
Great turn out for mid winter mid week

Safety Bay for some speed today. The flattest I've seen the bar in many many days spent down here, pity the wind was a touch light. Slowy was at it like a madman again sailing the bar right on dark in the squalls.

Awesome afternoon on superflat water.
One day I will rig the right kit here!
As we were rigging it was blowing nicely and so rigged the 5.7 and the nonose. As we hit the water it dropped then swung and we enjoyed silky smooth runs along the bar.
I think the addiction may be catching as Snake rerigged at 5.15 as he thought the wind was coming back and Scarrgo ( "I am not staying after 4") was still out there with dark approaching.
Managed to break the bottom batten in the 5.7 so that is my excuse for not going fast.
Well done on the PBs, JJ it was good to see a big grin on your face as you derigged. Have to get a smaller speed sail now!
Great speeds there, Snake! I assume from the 5x10 that you got some nice runs after I left.
Should be PBs to come from Scarrgo too. Don't worry about the fin I will grab it next time I see you.
Great stuff team. Time for a little rest.

awesome day at sb
mark was going to lend me his 27 weed fin went to put it in my board but it was not even close to fitting which was a bit strange so he gave me his fav 24 banshi speed weed which was awfully nice considering the wind droped out and he was struggling with his 23
anyway got down there early hoping to finish early was pretty fresh when i rocked up so rigged the small gear again
got out on the water to find it insanly flat was so easy to do a pb was no where nearly as scary or on the edge as my other attempts in storms to go fast, just a bummer there wasn't some better gusts could of easily gone faster if i was powered up properly
got lots of nice alpha's and sweet jybes in the flat conditions, once again could of done better alpha's if i had been powered up the whole time
cheers for lending me the fin mark have to get a good small weed fin of my own now that was awesome
bad luck jj on that incident shame somthing like that had to taint such a great day

Safety Bay - embarrassing to be so slow - but no point denying it.
