Nice day on the bay. A bit disappointed with my speed again. Perhaps I need a new board or perhaps the board needs a new sailor.

 

Tons of people out windsurfing. Whoever says windsurfing is dying has their head up their coit.

Tabou Freeride 48cm fin

Thanks Dave,

 

what colour sail and board were you out on today? I took some video on my GoPro and will go through the footage tomorrow. If I see you I'll try and incude it. That goes for anyone else who was out there today. I took good footage of Peter so he will be happy.

I was sailing down at South Ramp. I didn't ventrure up to the North Car Park, so I won't be in any of your footage, but I look forward to seeing it just the same.Smile

Congrate on the PB Karl! You were looking comfy on your setup.

It wasn't a big day for speed yesterday anyway, it was a nice sunny day for cruising! Cool

Hi Carl next time out happy to spend a bit of time with you to tune the gear. I've found that my speeds can be dramatically different when I'm not dialled in. I also reckon that big curvy fin of yours doesn't help, You should borrow a blade to test run on the board, getting the board flying off a racier fin can make all the difference.

Speaking of which I had a good sail yesterday, got the gear dialed nicely and the smooth water was a bonus. There was one time when the wind picked up nicely and my 7.8m was fully powered....its a shame a I left my gps at home Embarassed......probably did atleast 40 knots  Laughing.

Thanks guys.

Yeah I think you are right Des. The big fin doesn't help speedwise and its a bit battered and nicked. Spending a bit of time tuning will help.

 

Yeah I was comfortable with the set up yesterday but speed seems to be limited at the top end. My big board has seen better days and is a bit battered and probably a bit heavier due to water getting into it. I'll keep it going till it falls apart.

 

Dave, I sailed a few times down to the south ramp so I could have filmed you a bit. I was using the red Loft 02 and blue Tabou Rocket and wearing a red helmet.
