Jan Waves

It seems we have had one of the best weeks wave sailing for a long time.
Sunday was pumping, sets up to 3/4 mast and light cross offshore winds. For me a little too light, I struggled to get up wind. A bigger wave board would have done it.

Jan Wave Session

Nice wave session yesterday. Small 3' surf breaking on Vazon's centre reef and onshore winds but with a long run into the reef it was a lot of fun. Big stalled forwards were the order of the day. 1 push loop that ended with me putting my elbow through my sail ended the day.

Air and water temp is only 9 degrees but with hood and boots the only cold part is the hands. Half an hour of not being able to feel your hands then they start to warm up again. I have known worse. Deffinately not the weather for slalom cruising though.

My Van is loaded with my wave board and 82 ltr speed board. Either fun in the waves or epic speed. Too cold for anything else.

As of 7th January 2011 I have signed to sail with Chinook booms and extentions.

I am thrilled to be part of such a fantastic brand with a history of making some of the best equipment there is.

Another piece of the jigsaw sorted on the road to World Champion.

2011 is here and I am more eager than ever to get competing. Training has gone to a whole new level, running or biking combined with a 1 mile swim every day. I can feel the swim is making a big diiference already.

Fridays forcast is epic. I'll try and get some pics posted.
