First time at the lagoon and big thanks to Michael for the ride up.
Martin perservered all day and got PB,s too - (along with some good bruises too I suspect afgter some rather spectactular crashes) Well done Martin on the PB's.
Good on ya Michael for carring on after rather vicous catapult which smashed his hip into the boom and left him in a u shape for the rest of the day.
Very good place to speed sail but there is speed sailing etiquette employed here in the interests of safety.
Big thanks to the speed kiters for being so accomodating.
Absolutely stoked with PB,s - http://www.gps-speedsurfing.com/default.aspx?mnu=user&val=69037&uid=973
|Michael (icesurf) (267km): |
Kaipara Lagoon, at low tide a very short restrictive speed run.
Screwed before my 1st Run, lost my balance on my 1st start & was flicked into the boom, deep internal gash on the hip could hardly walk.
Had to continue, knew I wouldn't get any speed but had to know if the small 12cm & 15cm fins would work?
Would these little fins be too difficult to get going, have no control, just spin out, spin out in chop, spin out going broad, spin while trying to stop? Had to know & over come lots of pain to do so.
All in all a great day & great location, I will be back!
