That time of the year again screaming into Winter – no wind and cold, better go dig my wettie out. What is a windsurfer to do.
We went out visiting on Saturday most of the day with a movie at home while we had lunch. Picked up a JP 145 x-cite ride to progress to from Stumpy (155L). I am really happy with Stumpy but she is very banged up and not quite sure how long she is going to last. The X-cite ride is a touch narrower 60mm and about the same length now Stumpy has had a nose job. Looks ok with nice sharp rails in the back – round at the front and flat rocker at the back – should be suitable. The F2 Thommen 160 has gone to a new good home with Pete from Bribie Island.
Wow to less than a year ago I was excited about getting planning on the ‘Rio Longtail’ best learners board on the planet. I was looking at some of the footage of my progression on the week end and I have come a long way in a short space of time. The learning curve is steeper at the moment. Although in saying that – it is now cold and no wind.
I am spending my life at the gym in order to maintain a reasonable level of fitness – but the weight loss is suffering a bit. I am sitting at around 98 kilos (down 10) it seems I only loose some if I get out on the water. Must burn a fair few Calories when you spent 2 to 3 hours on the water.
