As is so often the case, after a couple of big days it is nice to have a slightly mellower day. I say 'mellower' but 5.0 was plenty and it was certainly still very gusty on the point. The swell was down a little though, as was the incidence of kit breakage today. Still decent sized swell but it didn't feel like it would sweep you out of the bay if it all went wrong. Came in just as the wind seemed to be dropping, as dodging the surfers, body boarders, skim boarders and swimmers on the way in whilst in zero wind was quite a challenge.

Another windy wavey day. I understood the waves a bit better today so caught some better waves. Certainly the biggest waves I have been on, but quite shallow so didn't feel they were a threat to life or limb. However I did get caught out by the gusty wind and catapulted onto the board putting a hole in it - good job I had taken the insurance option...

Board:85 litres
Sail:5.3

Yesterday was a case of wrong board, wrong sail, wrong time, wrong place. Today was right time, right place, right board right sail. Was on a 85 litre freewave with extra thruster fins and also a 5.3 'Hero' - first time I've tried one of these new fangled 4 batten wavesails. I have to say, both board and sail were terrific, with the Hero noticeably lighter and more responsive than my 5 batten Ice. There were some fun waves on the point break which were lots of fun, and a perfect place to see the new school fusion of freestyle and wave sailing, with Tonky Frans leading the pack. A great afternoon in great conditions.
