Gusty day on the water


Yesterday we had a strange day…..the predictions were for weak wind….so I was thinking that it would be a day for 7.0 or 8.0 but when I arrived at our spot the wind was blowing strong already…..

I went for a bite on a hamburger first and then when I got back the wind was even stronger… we decided to rig sails around 5.4m I picked up my Futura 101 L and went out for a blast…..

The gusts were very strong and sometimes it was hard to keep the board flat on the water….i should have used the Kode 86L board but I left it at home!!!!

The gusts were strong and the water very choppy so I could manage to do 2 gybes in about 20 attempts…..bugger!!!!

As my friend Rui Cruz once said never leave nothing at home….bring all your kit to the beach because you never know….what you will need!!!
