Today looks good if not even better than yesterday. Clouding over tonight into friday could boast a real nice set up again...

Wow - surprisingly steady considering the clouds. Nice score whoever made it.

Nice flat water low tide pretty consistant wind. Didn't feel too rusty...
A small batch of kiters over in the honey hole.
Fun day.

Light but steady. 5.3 was perfect but had to wait on the sandbank during a few lulls. Fun to get in a few duck jibes and blast around with Adrian. Had to stay in the river though as wind was too light outside. No problem on the ride Adrian it's nice to have some company.

I finally got a chance to try my naish hover windsurf foil. The average 20 knots with 4.8 hucker was perfect to learn on, at nexen bay with no worries of hitting bottom. TOW 3hrs, tougher than I thought, it's very humbling. definitely an interesting and new feeling for me. I can't wait to try it again!

That's awesome! 3 hrs on a first session is pretty good. I kept my first (humbing) session to 1 hour and water was still draining from my sinus after I got home.

Hey Francis, that sounds like fun. What board are you using it on?
