SSYC 10/29

Postby BritishBlokeRyan » Thu Oct 29, 2020 10:00 am

Winds are looking strong for SSYC today. Depending on how things go in the office here I might get there before lunch but if not around 1-1:30pm. Hope to see some kite lads out.

Then Saturday at Bradford is looking too.

I am on my way down to SSYC right now. It looks like it's nuke and down there and a very good direction. If I don't post up in the next 30 minutes it's because it's freaking awesome out there.

It's nuking. Hard white caps inside the break. 7m for me. Light rain at the moment. I'm setting up an anchor to the beach 4x4 post for self launch and land fyi

Damn, it was true 9 meters weather for me today (de-powered too!) but after being on the water for 25 minutes one of my center lines snapped and my kite when into a continuous loop until it hit the water. Luckily I was close to shore and drifted back to the beach quickly (also thanks again for the assist grabbing the kite Don).

Disappointing as it was so Mork and Mindy today. Looking to get the lines fixed and back on the water at Bradford on Saturday.

Wow, what a day. True 30-40 mph wind. Depowered on my 6m! I had two incidents myself. After landing on the beach the first time, my chicken loop safety had a bunch of sand it it. I was trying to clean it out while flying the kite. bad, bad choice. It popped open and the kite flagged out. Thanks Steve and Jeff for the beach assistance. When I went back out on my tt I didn't change out of my rope slider surf spreader bar. I was off balance on a jump and had yard sale. It was too windy to get my board back, my harness slid up on my drysuit, my hood was in my eye and I couldn't even hang on to a mooring and wait for my board to drift back to me. Steve and Jeff again helped out and spotted my board after I body surfed back to shore.

Outstanding afternoon. Started on 5m and smallest board, given wind station report of 30-39mph. Found 5m too twitchy and board too sinky, wind dropped a little to took opportunity to change up to 7m and medium sized board and had a superb afternoon- comfortably powered and jumping at will - really need to learn how to land though :D

The afternoon was great. 7m all afternoon, had more power than I knew what to do with.

Surfed some monster waves about 50 percent of the time and got beat up by monster waves about 50 percent of the time. Good times.
