Headed to Shoreham today as the tide was still fairly high, hoping to try the Dyno with a smaller sail this time (I'd usually be on the old Evo 74 in these conditions).

I arrived to see lots of people out (mostly on 4.2 - 4.5) and definitely well powered but by the time that I'd gathered the kit from the car and changed, everyone was stood on the beach and the wind had dropped to almost zero. At least it made rigging easier!

For the next 15mins (in the words of another guy on the beach) it was "a great British blob-fest"), but the wind came back after a while. It was very up-and-down but that was actually a good test of the new board in super-gusty winds, which it passed admirably. Much easier in the lulls and just as much control in the gusts.

I'm still getting used to sailing such a smooth-feeling board - it's not "boring" but it's definitely less "lively". What I'm very quickly getting used to is only having to take one board for a whole range of conditions - that's GREAT!
