A long afternoon at Kimmeridge. (12-5:30) Most on 4.7 but completely stacked 5.2 was good for me for extra rotational power on forwards.

A fabulous afternoon. Quite onshore and only small waves (waist to chest high) but breaking with usual predictability out in the middle of the bay with long long run ups for some fun airtime.

Great sailing with Jas and Steve.

Loved being on the Quantum 90. It loves loads of wind and power, never feeling a handful.

Mike said overhead from 8.45-10.45 probably out on the Ledges. Then got pretty onshore nasty. So Martin quickly bailed lol.

Southbourne 9 'till 1 on & off changing boards (82 bit too sluggish), harness lines etc. I stayed 5.3 but needed 4.7 by 12. Waist to chest occasional head, great jumping. Mr Big Salty's 1 handed stalled tweaked table tops, amongst others, quite something to behold.

Then joined the hordes, 4.7 both boards again, at the touch x-off bump n jump/occasional buttery waist high Avon. That was 2 'till 6 & halfway in with 5 minutes left on ticket, 2 wardens were busting the 2 cars parked right next to me. Lucky.

4.5 on the SK6000 & thanks Andy Corner for the pic

Yep I think K bay was better in the a.m but 8:45 is not a civilised time to go windsurfing (and plenty good enough for some great jumping and looping in the p.m, and better than Avon by the look of the pics)

Down at uncle toms for 7am group of us sailed out to point X brilliant fun on a 4.7 but should have been on my 4.2 .Walked in at low tide 11.30 had a massive brunch watching the speed sailor's down the Ray. Then back out this time on the foils at chalkwell at the evening high tide again brilliant fun on 4.2 . four on foils and about four on fins. Then liquid dinner watching mates blues band down the smack . life does not get any better than that. :D

England vs Bangladesh in Cardiff. Sunny and warm, great company, lots of food and beer. Whats not to like? Well, imagining what conditions a short distance away must be like for a start! Why, in my largely empty social diary, do 2 things I really want to do have to happen on the same day? :oops:

Although, if I'm honest, I'm not well practiced enough for nuking 3.7m weather anyway. Probably would have been just as frustrating even if I was sailing. Can we have some 4.3m-5m days please?
