Strong, cool SWesterlies today (and no surf on the Coast) Fergusson Park it was going to be. Howling spring conditions, about 25 knots with some insane gusts and fronts coming through at around 30knots+ - keeping everyone on their toes and hanging on for dear life with a few close calls!
There was a sense of energy and excitement in the air! 4.0metre sails seemed to be the order of the day. John from Guernsey Island (UK), Richard and Andrew still getting some good air off the small chop and making it look easy as they do! Fergie Park was packed with at least 20+ windsurfers making the most of it - with windsurfers of all levels out there enjoying the cool, blustery conditions and incoming tide. Even the ex-windsurfers who usually kite-board utilised the strong wind, dusting off their windsurfing gear and joining us on the water.
Hats off too, to those with limited equipment who were determined to get out there and enjoy themselves no matter what!
It was great to see everyone come out of the woodwork. What a great turnout. An awesome session with agreements of great satisfaction all round. Looking forward to the next session!
