First run on my new big girl and I'd forgotten how good they are to ride.
Wind when I got there was 11-15 (ave 12) and when I got of it was 11-16 (ave 13).
Initialy just working up wind to try and chase the wind a bit till it returned then when it came back a bit had some fun seeing how hard I could push a lumpy naughty, ended with 2x 23.5's and 1x 23.2kn naughty, last run was a bit slower as I fluffing around with mast track positions and I went the wrong way.
Whole lotta fun, Definately like my big girl, babies got back!

Wow, the advantage of rigging late! Id's measure 15 to 18kts so went with the 55cm board and 6.2 Koncept, but by the time I'd got into my wetsuit, wind had dropped to 13 to 15, and everybody was out floating around. So wacked the 22cm @55 deltoid into the 65cm board. Could'nt be bothered changing to the 6.6.Koncept. So went out and had a cruisy planning sail, around everybody else that was floating around.
Made up for leaving my gear behind in the tub, luckily I had some spares , and thanks to Gloria for the lend of her spare harness.
But I was out minus impact vest and camelpack, So mouth was getting dry, and wind died off, so it was obviosly time to call it quits.
I'm about to see how my arm unit went at 8hz. So mor later.
Well that didn't work, 8hz didn't stick, it goes back to 5hz for some reason.
