Nuking S wales and full sunshine. Sea breeze season has started. :D

4.7 for normal people and 5.2 for me. Quite flat to start with but then chest high waves building at the end of the session.

Managed 3.5hrs on the water mostly on my Simmer 90.

Level 4 on the skunkatron (i.e not a skunking)

Great but painful reading. No sign of the shingly sea breeze season starting any time soon :(

That's because they are a thing of the past.

I had the car loaded yesterday in the vain hope of an afterwork session, but a showery WNW air-stream never works into the evening and so it proved. I think that is a -1 on the skunkatron, but still the closest I've been to windsurfing for months!

New sport??

5 at Milford-on-Sea unlike -5 last time (BBC Lifeboat rescue show coming soon)...

Rare solid groundswell (~2m@13s) that wasn't doing as much elsewhere nearby. Too onshore/light 1st thing then on queue from 12 wind picked up & swung x-shore NW'ly.

5.3/95 spot on 'till 4 for some super smashing great logo high dtl. Daddy of a wipeout followed by big swim whilst sharing a bomb with Reuben (see vid). Lucky nothing broke as gear got fully washing machined. Mark & Phil also out for a bit.
