Friday 18th December

Post by PK1111 »

Down Kernow way, socially distancing, obviously!

Super wet and windy, stacked on 3.7 on Mako 84 for 2 hours. Some fun waves up to logo high but got a bit critical at low tide, with some casualties.

Wind dropped off so I took a tea break and rigged a 5m.
Old King Neptune didn’t like that. Not one bit.
Wind went super southerly and cranked back up to 25 gusting 35 knots.
Skated around hanging on to the 5m but in truth I was groove riding and in grave danger of tube riding as the hefty swell started to barrel onto the sand bars.

Discretion being the better part of being nearly 50, and with a hefty forecast for tomorrow, packed up at 3.
Skunkatron registered a solid 4. 😬

Had a session in Portland just to get used to the 82ltr Stubbie. Fully powered on 4.2m with quite bumpy water.

Is that the Super Ride? The reviews I've seen generally recommend it for normal old school blasting and gybing. Anything they have omitted to tell us about it or is it all fine?

Sorry belated answer: It was the 2020 Magic Ride.
