SPEED 2013

It has seemed like forever but we're finally getting there. Some of the new sails have arrived and it coincided with a nice North Easterly force 5. Under powered on the Neil Pryde Evo 7m2 but great fun. 1st time on the Patrick Diethelm 110 as well. I used my Black Project R37.5 which felt a little big, I'll swap it for my R35 next time. The board feels great, plenty of volume for me in light winds and definitely no need to go any bigger unless the Speed World Cup starts up again and I have to race on 9.5m2 sails.

My sail quiver is now 5.4, 5.8, 6.4, 7.0, 7.8. Any bigger and it would only be for world cup racing. Board wise - PD custom 41, PD Speed 43, PD Speed 53 and PD Slalom 110. Fins - Black Project X35 to X55 and Type R, Type RS.

Looking forward to posting some top speeds soon and Luderitz is creaping up fast.

Almost there, the boards have arrived, wave sails have arrived, most of the race sails are on their way ( 5.4m - 7.0m ) It means that I'll be able to get some speed tuning in soon . The picture above is my first with a gro pro harness mount. More to come.
