Thursday 21st September

Checked Bracklesham out which looked very nice sideshore/slightly off in the SEly wind. Some waves, would have been good waveriding in the small clean swell once the tide had dropped enough to launch.

But family duties meant that I launched at Felpham. It was blowing good 5.0 weather when I got there, but as soon as I got to beach with kit it dropped. Thought about getting 5.8, which would have been fine, but did a float out, backside ride back in session on FSW in waist high waves.

After an hour the wind came up and I was planing most of the time. Pretty good fun, considering it would have been very easy to not bother when the wind dropped...
