Very nice, sunny session in Punat, on bora wind. It was very gusty and tiring at the moments because there were holes with zero wind and its no fun with a small board. Otherwise wind was 15-20 kts, maybe around 25 in some gusts. I have finally dialed isonic86 and I love it. It just cruises through the small chop fully powered, great board . Too bad Jan wasn't with me. Mate, you gotta work on those domestic relationships ...

What a day! I was on iSonic 111 and NP Slalom 7,8 - to big from time to time, but ok for 17-20 kt of wind.
The story about distance: after 30 km I destroyed the boom. Some 250 meters from shore - wind was directly offshore, so I have to swimm for an hour! After that I have to walk 30 minutes to my van to take another boom, walk back again 30 minutes... Horor! I was completly down, tired, exosterd. Somhow managed to sail to the point of entrance, lay down, thinking I am done for today. Than, I look around - the see was so tirqouse blue, the wind was so good, the sun... - the scenery was apsolutly amazing. Just a litlle more, I thought to myself...
When I come in again, something amazing happaned - all tiredness was gone, no cramps anymore, no pain, nothing... I was apsolutly in the zone, completly effortless, just being there, with the wind... So, I went on and on and on for another 3 or 4 hours, and another +70 kilometers more! It seems to me that I could continue for ever... But wind was, fortunately, smarter, and let me rest... Untill tomorow!
PS: During that second part Ante Berlengi came (one of the best Croatian slalom racers), and we sailed together for some 20-25 kilometers. Man, he is fast! But I managed somehow to folow him. It was good - like chasing the rabbit! Thanks, Ante.
