Picton was great - winds held up all day (1 - 6 at least).

Waves were small but quite fun considering all we have at the PUC is chop.

Brent was carving up a storm strapless so I decided to see how mine was in the waves. All I can say is that getting onto the board was a real challenge with the waves knocking your board all over.

Re: beach day!


Got a good long session on the surfboard and then it picked up enough to have me happy on my banana.

Super super super crowded! Just a guess, but I'd say more than 40 kites on the beach and probably over 20 on the water at any given moment.

Crazy. Also tired.

but good tired!

lets hope for a thermal today!

Edit: just checked the web cam at it just hit 17 knots!!
