Waited patiently for honking conditions in the afternoon ... and honk it did. SW 27g32 was perfect for 5m+surfboard……. Glad you FINALLY got out KB! :lol:

:lol: Tuesday on the dinghy sailors who set up the race course in the middle of a couple of hundred kiters and windsurfers.

Yet another 5m+surfboard day in gusty SW 20-30.

Best part was Alton JR exiting out of her back roll for the first time ... on 5m+TT in gusty choppy conditions

That was some wild wind today, powerful swell at Nexen, treacherously huge chop by the river mouth! Managed to do a lot of downwind wave coasting and even S-turning on a few honking swells

Classic Squamish. SW 15-20 on 12m+surfboard. Would have preferred 8m in the afternoon but Alton JR was busy knocking off her 9 back rolls today.

Shared our favorite 8m with Alton JR. Steady SW 20-22 until it wasn't at 3pm. Usual chop but nice swell to be found for toe side rides.

Waves! Waist high breaking waves are pretty rare at Squamish. Fun riding 8m+surfboard in S (not SW) 20-30. The Airush Ultra made for a civilized session in gusty conditions.
