Two bad sessions in a in row :( After yesterdays rubbish at the pond I was going to Levington and have some longboard sailing and enjoy the sunshine but I got a call this morning from Neil Hurrell to say he was at the Fludgers with his two boys, so I took my gear to the seafront and was talked into staying and rigging the big freeride kit even though it looked a bit light. Once out the wind was marginal but with the tide still coming in against the wind you could get going but the sea was a horrendous lumpy mess :( and then I dropped the first gybe and went in and thought my heartr was going to stop - chilly or what !!! So I had a half doz. runs trying not to fall in then after each run head back to the shore to warm up !!! There were 6/7 out which is not bad for Dec. then the tide turned and wind dropped so you were disappearing along the coast - time to pack up - perhaps more fun to be had on the longboard up the river ? I thinks thats it for me on the op[en sea for awhile - if something went wrong a half mile out you would be in big trouble in the cold water !!! Nice to be out with mates even if they did talk alot about a trip to El Medano they are going on in the new year !!! jealous or what :)
