I was on bit of a testing mission -seeing how the new Mini Tuttle K4FINS performed in various boards... (they'll be available in a few weeks time)

Image   Image

Managed to sail 5 different boards with different fin set-ups (including the originals). A great day to get a feel for what the fins and configs actually do with 6hrs of full power 4m weather. My hands were ruined by 4pm when the wind finally eased. Top day!

Saturday/Sunday

Image

Went down to Cornwall. Checked Gwithian for a windsurf but looked proper limp (and I was aching and blistered), so took the dog for a walk up around Watergate bay. Someone was out sailing.? looked pretty good.


Had a decent surf on Sunday (head high and glassy but got lazy with the camera. Steve King turned up, then Dan Linton), much better than forecast and put the Firewire Dominator to the test. Love it. Only have it set up as a quad at the moment, it flies (and turns), I'm well impressed. Have some 'Robber' Merrick Fcs Twinzers on the way for the small days. May have finally found 'the one' for small wave joy.

Monday

It was our first wedding anniversary. We had 2 nights pimping it up for free in the Imperial Hotel Torquay where we were married last year.

Had a top evening out on the SUP* exploring the bay, watching the sun go down, having a picnic with champers, then watching the regatta week firework display from the best vantage point possible..
(sorry there's so many pics)

That last pic is not cropped! We were right underneath them and had a couple bounce off the side of the SUP* when they landed. Almost made it back to dry land without incident, but were collared by the harbour police for not having a light on 100yards from home.

Finished off with the fair. Brill.


Finally...  after watching Bens amazing Cape Town video, I was inspired to knock this up ready for the next bit of wind..

Image

Should be good for the next WaveJam if the wind ever sorts itself out. (yes, we are intending to still run them if we ever get another decent low pressure system hit the British Isles on a weekend..)



*Sit Up Paddleboat. By the way, NOBLES are now running real SUP sessions.
