Budgewoi Lake, NSW, AU    Real good arvo from BuffPoint. Wanted to try my new overdrive 5.6 with my isonic90. I did and it worked fine. Didnt get totally smooth water but it wasnt too bad either. Almost got a PB so, i was happy. Better luck next time.Interestingly, there were not as many people out as usual or just my eyesight????

20-28kts+ SSW Buff Pt Budgewoi Lake, NSW, AU- choppy as scary..

79ltre Falcon - 30cms weedie( miles too big) + 5m OD

Not many out and once out there could see why. Not much fun.I needed my 68ltre waveboard but of course I didn't bring it! 1st time I've decided to not bring everything and of course I regretted it..Yell Won't do that again. Had the 5m set really full with hardly any downhaul and overpowered + board too big + fin too big + whoose = splat

Hung back on the gybes in the chop and crashed a lot but then saw so was everyone else so felt better..Embarassed..Got a few but really had to go for it with gritted teeth.. Stayed out for 40mins then decided this isn't fun so went in..woohoo in the chop Surprised

Pulled heaps more outhaul + downhaul on and lowered the boom + mast track forward and went back out.It had got a bit more gusty so it was a bit flatter in the flats but then no consistent wind in there..Undecided Still less stressful until the trip back in down the back of 2-3' chop Surprised Whooping my head off in adrenalin + fear..Laughing. 1st time I've been scared in a while. I was also a bit worried as I was sailing in the area where  Wayne's tree is and having a 30cm fin on that was in the back of my mind. Passed a floating doorsized something Surprised wood ? cardboard..

Paul on his new Magic ride having a ball , Tibor , Bruce , Frothie and Pugs.Old Pete had been out earlier at Peelie and said the chop was horrendous. Would have been better for B & J today..Time to check out Canton again?

Took some pics of conditions will post when more time. I'm happy with that speed considering the conditions.

 The 'flats' our speed area - used to be mirror smooth Cry

 

 

This is from a different direction ( looking across from the sth towards Buff Pt launch but look how flat the speed area  was last winter..shallower + weed- similar wind strength although maybe gustier as WNW.

choppier area gybing

 

  Looking across the channel to the flats- some flatter area there but wasn't getting any real wind.

Thanks everyone..I often wonder if I'm boring the beejesus out of people Embarassed so it's nice to know it's entertaining..Smile..I know I like to read the ins & out of other peoples sessions and see where they sail.
