Scored another great day on Assateague. Wind was marginal 5.8, only planed up on the wave face, and had an absolute blast. The waves were pretty sloppy, mostly one hit wonders. But the occasional clean one would come thru allowing for 2 turns.
I hit the water around 11am, which was just about lo tide. No shorebreak, and no current. Also hardly any wind due to the temperature differential between the water and the air, mid 70s for late October! Sailed for about 5 hours, water is still quite warm.
I love this sequence, I caught this wave just right, and it felt soooooo good.
Note, this is one of my favorite pics from the day. It coincidently is photo 1111 hehehe
Of course it closed out, but still came away hooting and hollering
I don’t think the waves ever reached 5-6 foot, mostly waist to shoulder high. Period was quite short, and I gotta a lot of practice going over short period walls of white water. Love it! Training for those big days that are right around the corner
but still fun to play in the white water
New Nikon 300mm lens! No more camera envy
Gimme a puff!
Ken, look, its a fin! I saw this pic and thought of you. Couldn't resist ;)
Fun sequence of setting up to
to go front side and..
so smooth and effortless when you link the turns together correctly.
slow it down
sloppy waves but fun
they had some kick to em as well
I was out of position on this one
swept me off my feet
They where mostly closeouts
Mostly closeouts, but still fun!
Keep it together now...
don't give me any lip cuz i'm in the wrong spot
Longer harness lines are the way to go. I've switched to 26 inch. Much better for wavesailing
