Without a doubt the windiest conditions I've ever sailed. In this photo, its blowing 50, with gusts to 65.
Hurricane strength :)
I was dialed with my 3.7 Wave Vogue
first sesh of the year w/o gloves and just a beanie
and just my mystic crosstech steamer
so nice to have less rubber on, and more freedom to really get into it
Beautiful shot of the sky before the front came thru
in this shot I was waiting out an especially strong gust. Its NOT raining in this photo, this is liquid smoke. Full on nukin conditions
I sailed from 1.30-5pm

Think I'm having fun here? ;)
had the place all to myself
Initially, I was on a 4.2. I came in to rig down. My kit is sitting properly on the beach. A gust came thru, picked up the entire thing, and it flew 30 feet, rotating thru the air into the grass.
Its actually windier than it looks
Steve from Lewes came out to watch
first half of the day I was on the 4.2 vogue
Check out this sequence
super powerful gusts coming thru
trying to keep from exploding here with my 4.2....
in category one hurricane force gusts!
thats not spray off my board, just more spray coming of the ramps
SIC!!!! Had to drop in and sit this gust out.
pretty epic for the baby pool eh ;)
Check it out
these jumps are on the inside off of ramps that where ankle high
but in heavy winds like this, all you gotta do is pop and get air borne and you go up!
and just friggin fly!
My wave thruster rips in these conditions
lots of grip
email me if you'd like to take it out for a spin
....blessed beyond measure
