Sunday November 1st in Picton!!!


I am looking ahead to some great wind forcasts for this weekend. Picton currently looks great for both Saturday and Sunday but the weather looks better for Sunday.

A chance to get a November session in...

It will be windy for sure this weekend, as how strong, is still too early. I'll be there sat for sure!

Re: Sunday November 1st in Picton!!!


Has anyone been out recently? I haven't been out since Thanksgiving at Sandbanks where i got pretty cold pretty fast in a near watertight 2mm wetsuit with a hat and long pants on. I was also very over powered with my 11m. What sort of wetsuit should one be rocking at this time of year? 5mm? full on drusuit?
Cheers

Re: Sunday November 1st in Picton!!!


Was out with Jeff on Sun and again today. Have retired the 4/3 wetty for the season and was in the Drysuit for both those last 2 sessions. I usually wear a helmet and with a neo cap under it now I cook enough to not need gloves or booties until it gets stupid cold. Love the dry suit for that. Layer up and your an inferno in there. It's supposed to breathe a bit, but you can still get a decent sweat on. They really are great pre and post session. Virtually zero wind chill and you hop out dressed. My wetsuit is double lined so nice and tough but there is a lot of wind chill from evaporation. Prior to last year I made do with it plus a 2mm shirt under it and gloves/boots/water togue. 2mm is pretty thin! Your gonna want something a little more substantial for round here. I resisted the drysuit pretty hard, but am stoked with it now. So nice to go the extra month or so without gloves/boots and its just easier in/out when its cold and windy. I'm a drysuit convert for sure. Sat/Sun.... game on.

Sunday is fading but Saturday looks great. Thinking about an early morning shot.
