Happy new year everyone!
Short session Nelson Haven - high tide. I was saving myself for the speed strip in the evening, sadly the wind turned off on me in the evening so I'm very glad I got out for this posted session.
Ka Koncept 5.4, IS87, Venom 29.5
Wind was 24knts gusting 28knt NNW. I tried a couple of boulderbank runs, but I feel the wind angle made the run too broad as I quickly ran out of power. The other note was it was still choppy entering the run (my last session at low tide this was not a problem).
Readings from the harbour website so I can compare to real NW in the future.
