Absolutely stoked!!!!!!! Gambled with a PD day and it paid off big time. Very very windy and very choppy. As I got out most went in except for Millsy and Hugh. The water was getting lifted in sheets at stages. First run just let it go, 40.31. OMG. Had my own little dance to celebrate Embarassed and then waved Johnny down just so I could show someone.

It was awesome but hairy doing slingshots in those conditions but once you were deep off the wind if felt sweet. First five runs were all over 40 knots, 40.31, 40.03, 40.17, 40.13 and a 40.54 peak, talk about natural highs. Hugh and I had some great runs together and the bugger just pipped me.

It was now gusting 35+ and super choppy and just too scary to sheet in. The reach back was scary through the channel chop!!!!!!! Came in a very happy little vegemite!!! Finally did it, woo hoo. Huge thanks to Sam @ Windsurfnsnow for his continued support.

Thanks everyone, it was a great sail but a bit scary at the same time. Ive gotta admit its a very special feeling to sail with a bunch of blokes who muck around, take the piss and support each other at the same time. It makes windsurfing so much fun and everyone is up for the challenge and going for it. Ive spent more time sailing at the spots around here than I have at Lake Dangerous which I can see from my back deck!! So much fun with the boys Tongue out
