Saturday 5th October

Post by Ruaraidh_K257 » Sat Oct 05, 2019 6:01 pm

Arrived at the Maze with the WD crew and stuffed our kit in their trailer to drive into the beach. The trailer got stuck, we fannied about for an hour before finally digging it out. We drove round the corner and caught sight of waist to logo high sets, peeling perfectly with a howling cross offshore breeze. Sailed pretty overpowered on the best combo, 4.0 Combat HD and 69l Ultimate Wave, had the time of my life. Been watching a lot of the PWA guys turning and was getting much more vertical and snappy in cross off which I was chuffed with.

My mission to hit every lip went a bit badly today, I did try and hit all the big lips but a lot of them hit me first and I got a few thorough rinsings! Tris was the standout star today with a lot of sick aerials and some ballsy goiter attempts, the rest of the WD crew + Dad were ripping as well. To make things better Richard Whitson was there photographing everything, so I should have some lovely pics of me swimming after my gear haha.

Here’s to the next epic session, which looks like Monday, with a 20 foot westerly swell hitting the island in the evening :)
