8th February 2017
Windsurfing: El Medano, Tenerife
Wind Direction: NE
Wind Stength: F6
Surf / Sea State: chop then smoother
Air Temperature: 22
Sea Temperature: 19
Weather: sun
Max Speed: 24.1/2secs (knots - unless stated otherwise)
Distance Covered: 37.4 (Nautical Miles - unless stated otherwise)

On the water a bit before 11 on 86l tri set up with flattened 5.2m as wind forecast to drop a bit. Overpowered at times and would have been better on 4.7m until 2pm, then 5,2m but I kept 5,2m all the time. Sea choppy, even by harbour wall (high tide) and smoothed as tide dropped. I sailed until 3pm and then tired. After 1:20 hours tried quad set up and board set better in water but falling in on some gybes and trying too tight. Moved back fins to front of box leaving outer ones in middle and much better for South Bay. Quad goes up wind even better and handles chop better when over powered, but does like long turns unless middle fins foreward. Several small jumps
Some logo swells to gybe off. Good fun. Best day yet. Wind decreased around 3pm and too tired to rig 6m. Not quite 5* as sailing too overpowered. Great day
