  I suspect you do need a smaller board - but then you've got to act like a freestyle weapon - so no pressure there then!

  Yes, and I really liked it.

  Speedy - have you sailed a 99 freestyle yet? How much do you weigh? I weigh, ahem, 9 stone something! - and my 100l is ideal for me ...

You have to much money m8.The freestyle wave will hold more wind than a pure freestyle.

  However, I do want to change the 109 freestyle for a 99 freestyle. If anybody wants it it's a 2008 JP Pro Freestyle 109 Ltr. Jamie at wet and dry did a small deck repair which is not visible after a harness accident. I'm after 450 if anyone is interested.

  I probably will hang on to it. I think Saturday's sail left most people scratching their heads, bit offshore and crap. The common conclusion is to blame your kit. I think the FSW will come into it's own on those 6/7m summer days (if they still exist).

cliff is correct about your jp freestyle board,there like sailing barn doors, for your sailing i would keep the freestyle wave,you probably wont listen,and do the opposite.

  we need a swear box for Cliff and his endless ezzy chatter - let your birthday mark the end of it?! I mean grow up, ya nearly 50 - haha.

I tried putting hand warmer sachets in my marigolds last week, they got a bit damp and didn't work at all really. Can't believe there's nothing better than marigolds and neoprene gloves with all those new fibres around.

  Good luck with that. I'm heading round to East Beach at 1:30ish and sailing the incoming. A couple of hours is plenty enough in four degrees.

  wont get out at east beach till about 2 tho could go for a walk out and meet water if its blowing. any idea what time the gates close there me and jimbo rushed to get out the carpark for 4.30 and there was no sign of anyone locking up.

  East Beach again isn't it or maybe the Lagoon might be worth a try. Just googled 'papoose', very fancy.

  Can't believe you're giving weather reports Cliff, you've only sailed once since Boxing Day. We all thought maybe you were getting a bit old for the cold :)

  The big question where to sail tomoro.
489
March 04, 2010 - 09:23 PM
spartan

  speedster vs Gemmster, the big one , rules are;; no tacking, no flair gybes,and you both have to sail to the end of the boom at high water. its not the ray people,you may need your arm bands. first one to come off the water or fall in, loooooooooooses.

  it wasnt as windy today so i gave it a miss, saturday and sunday look windy,believe me its cold out there, speedy you only did 20mins on wednesday,baldmart and jimbo did about 2 hours, i did about an hour and half and my hands froze.

  Well glad you had a nice time - twas a lovely day. If you actually did any work your body would go into shock and you'd never windsurf again. You gonna get a papoose for the new baby?
492
March 04, 2010 - 03:02 PM

  At last, a reasonable sail. Just Fran and myself out today enjoying the sparkly waves and not too cold. So glad I'm not a desk surfer.

  Blimey, the gauntlet is down. Can I use the same size sail this time or do you need the one metre handicap? :)

  What did i say about it being windy now that I've got friends over the weekend! Blimey. I could do an early session at east beach on saturday. Anyway, i turn my back for a few hours and suddenly i'm head to head with Speedy. Shall we warm up these freestyle sessions with a race?
