Started off at 8.30am with the JP and a gusty, super broad wind making it hard to get above 43kt peaks. Pete D then lent me his Mistral (huge thanks Pete) so I could get some practice on it before Luderitz. Its a great board - super smooth and very fast. I was using all my kit for the first time today and it kept getting faster. I hooked one big gust that gave me the peak speed and it felt like there was more there for sure. Evo 5 was rock solid as was the fin. I feel ready! If I have one complaint on the day its Ian - I thought I have finally beaten the bugger but no - one hour later after I saw him jumping up and down with a PB. Maybe another time :-) congrats though Ian. Great to see everyone enjoying themselves with quite a lot of PBs I think - an awesome day!
