Distance Covered:

Wind was picking up all day so I went out as soon as it started gustign to 30 knots. It was a little gusty to start with and although I was up and planing the whole time, there were quite a few holes in the wind and a little more would have been handy.

Had a few runs like that, then the wind filled in a little more and finally I was up and flying properly, blasted out to the bar, did a jump, landed it and snapped my board in two. It snapped clean across in between the front and back footstraps. It wasn''t even a particularly hard landing, but it was game over for me. The bottom of the board stayed in tact, but only just and I was able to just about sail it back by standing around the front straps with the tail flapping about behind me.

Pretty annoyed really as I loved that board and it was only a year old. I've never owned a board from brand new before as Ive always bought second hand, but this one was my first ever new board and it only lasted a year. I've never snapped a board before and I'm pretty sure it shouldn't be that easy to do.

The wind filled in properly once I got back home, reaching around 40 knots so I should really have gone back out on my smaller board, was didn't bother.
