iS90, 6.3RBlade, 30Tribal Sl - Lammermoor Beach, QLD, AU SE 18-23kn

Decided on given the Tribal slalom 30 a go in the 90 as suggested by JJ.  Wind not quite as much as yesterday but there were a few bullets coming through.  Ocean much messier after a full night and days blow and it had too much south in it limiting opportunities to go broad - I only got two okay 10sec runs. Fin felt really loose (good) and was surprisingly solid pointing although it let go on one broad run when I started bouncing around like a braless Dolly Parton in a Lada Niva driving on a corrugated dirt road (that one's for you Franga).

Big breeze and rain squalls up here but time and tides didn't line up so no back up. 33knts will feel like standing still when you hit flat water next.

Nice speed, 34+ coming up Cool

An occasional diversion sideways is an ok price to pay for slipperiness, I reckon Laughing

 

Have you tried adding weight?

Have you tried adding weight?   Yeah it was called xmas Wink At 93kgs JJ plus the addition of camel pack and wet gear I reckon I'd top the scales around 96/97kgs.  I think this may just be enough!

Never hit the magic 34 in the ocean although with your advice for smaller fin I may just get there - of course it will be a sphincter clenching experience and my eyes will be as big as dinner plates as Bob says.
