A really fun session, beginning with a nice Sunday roast in the pub.
Wind was steadily building but I'd packed my safest (i.e. biggest)
That meant starting on the Manta115/7.4 combo which was okay for a bit, but
it was really too lumpy to be fun. By the time I'd launched the wind was
enough to not need the size anyway.
After lending the Manta out for a while, I changed to the old Bee267/6.4,
by which time the wind had risen more and others were on 5.3s... However,
the old Bee is excellent fun (and FAST!) in these conditions and it was
perfectly fun with a 5.4m buzzing in and out with a few little jumps and
the odd wave to play on.
Had I brought the Evo74/5.4 instead of the Manta I'd have used it instead,
but would probably have had less fun. Confirmed by H who borrored the Bee
for a while too!
I also had a quick spin on H's RRD Wave Twin 90, which was great fun! Must
explore some more new-style boards at some point.
A great afternoon with friends in the sun :)
