cranking breeze made me a gumby- trampoline the 6.6 to tear out some sq. m. still too big, went 5.5 gaastra from 1990's still too big as it jumped to whitecaps in the 20cm shallows.

great day hanging with my brother Raygun !

Coodanup, WA, AU

Isonic 87, Overdrive 6.2, VSW 25.

Raid to Fangland with toby1. Looked windy when we arrived and continued to build as session went on.

Some nicely powered up runs on the 6.2 but with not much water around, a pretty big fin and some big weedbergs around it made for some nervous bearaways. Looking at where you want to go but knowing its too shallow we stayed out in the deeper stuff.

Was nice and choppy out there and so without a crab bite or a crash I decided to head in.

Thanks Obi for transporting my stuff was great to get out and catch up with Fangy again.

Peel Inlet, WA, AU

100L PD, 6.2 OD, 29 WS.  Waaay too much fin for the depth of water, could only really sail through the channel and a bit either side.  Pretty frustrating to look at such a big expanse of flat water that I couldn't sail in.  Jo sliced her foot open on her weedy so off to the Peel hospital to wait for 4 hours for them to do nothing and send her home!

Good times sailing with all the boys though!

Gusty day, soo very shallow even with my smallest fin. Got some very quick runs to the channel and back again but going over the channel got a bit hairy as the afternoon progressed. Pushed it one too many times and wiped out and opened up my toes on my fin whilst water starting..... Day over :(

Great to meet the Mandurah crew, thanks Elmo for giving us the low down on where to and not to venture with my fins.

Will be back one day with a delta to try out your speed run!!!

A real education in how different it is to chase speed. Upon rigging I discovered that the weed fin Slowboat had kindly loaned me would not fit my board. Yoyo came to the rescue and lent me one of his which was great as I think heading out on anything else would have been courting disaster. Next issue I ended up choosing too small a sail and then proceeded to muck around with settings until I got an ok result with board not tail walking like a wild bronco! Missed the best bullits while dicking around but feel it was worth it as I know much more than I did at the beginning of the day! Great crew out all encouraging eachother and having fun.

I really enjoyed yesterday! Sailed with a 5.5m, 114L Exocet Cross and 32cm wave MFC fin. 

I wondered where you all got to, no wonder there wasn't much traffic :). 

The chop was breaking on the bank with the low tide.  One kite surfer was jumping close to 50 feet high.  Normally I don't look at the kiters much but this guy was fast and a dare devil (he must have been in from the coast for the windy conditions). 

It was very gusty until about 3pm then it went ballistic, 20-33knots.  Neil Scheltema reckoned he went his fastest ever yesterday on a downwind run from Point Walter.  He has now ordered a GPS. No nasty injuries a Pelican Point yesterday so all in all a great day out.

Great stuff Mike and Jo! Hope that foot is ok. Now that you've seen the potential, I think a few more fins might be added to your collection, Mike Tongue out

Nice to meet you guys, liptons is certainly a special place, but you need the right equipment. You can see why we get almost obsessive with weed fins.

Nice PB's Wally sailor, bet you felt every one of those knots through the peli chop!  Great 2sec Steve, I know it wasn't on the flat stuff either.

Great to see you got out yesterday Greg, great work on the PB's!!! We all went on a road trip down to sunny Mandurah and had a great day out with the local lads. Learnt a great deal... mostly about fins!!

Toes are still connected (albeit with a half dozen stitches) but nothing too bad and Doc assures me I will be back on the water for Lancelin Ocean Classic so no harm done :)

Ripper session Steve, great success on the PB's, well done. When we hit Liptons next I am sure we will all be well armed with shallow fins and will be cranking the speed run  :)

Thanks for your encouragement everyone.  Yep, it was a bit choppy at Pelican Point yesterday, however I felt mostly in control and have not got sore arms today (Harness is working :)).  Having said that I have really sore thighs today.  Should be back on the water tomorrow and Friday, wind permitting.

Glad to hear your foot is on the mend Jo Smile

It was good to catch up with Tobys and Toby on Tuesday. Sorry you couldn't make it to Liptons, Raygun, you would have smashed out PBs for sure.

It was nice to catch up with Stephen again too, although I nearly didn't recognise him.
