Thursday 26th October

Pagham, 5.8 and 95l FSW. Waves, well, chop and bumps were better immediately East/downwind of the mulberry. Well powered most of the time, 15-20 knots according to Chimet and beautifully warm - more like late summer more than late October!

Friday 6th October

Sailed at Avon Beach. Drove down in 30-35knts and got to the beach to find everyone swiming their kit in in 5knts in quite nice waves. Brilliant...

Decided to have some lunch and see if the wind came back as the weather cleared. Sure enough it did and went out on the 5.0 and 95l. The waves dropped off pretty quickly as the tide dropped and the water became almost unsailably shallow (remember for future: Avon high tide beach on big springs). It soon became plenty windy for the waveboard which with its renewed non-slip stuck to the feet like glue.

Great fun but a bit disappointed as was expecting epic...

This is the size of the waves once the tide had gone out :(

Joel going for a sick gaeriel :)

Sunday 1st October

Solid to maxed 4.2 day at Pagham. Reasonable waist-high waves, but afflicted with the usual Pagham arthritis, meaning jumping was better than riding, and although there was plenty of riding to be done it was definitely a day for the Evo-style boards. It was probably better at low tide, given the swell size.

Got some great jumps though, biggest I've done for years. Wind was up to 40knots according to Chimet.
