Oh crap, what have I done...
« on: April 21, 2021, 09:24:20 PM »
Kanaha was nuking today. I started just before 11:00 on a 5.0 with my old Kalama board and the 1150/390 on a 96 mast. Finished up at 3:45 on the new Flying Dutchman board (holy shit what a great board that is!), 4.2 F-one Strike, and a 1000/240 ultrashort fuse on a 76 mast. I was overpowered from the moment I got in the water until I finally staggered out. It just built and built. The forecast was for 15mph. iWindurf is clearly on crack. Solid 25 probably hitting 35 all day long. I'm going to wash some Advil down with a double shot of Jameson's and hope I can sleep with every joint yelling "WTF DID YOU DO!!"

My lovely semi-virgin 1150 on the 96 mast grazed off the Portagee Triangle reef flat out, as fast as I can go (two bounces, no faceplant--what a wing) and has now gone from my best looking wing to the worst. What a horrible sound. I don't think a little buffing is going to fix this.

Looks good to me. I can see the fun on the surface.

Note he said gusts were 35+. I’m gonna say there’s no Olympic standards for nuking but scientists have tried to set a baseline for “stoke” to prevent misuse of the term.  ;D
