Wind gusty although avg 17 knots, opted for 14m at times well under powered then ballistic. Lots of scarry death runs, jumping from wave to wave (not through design or choice ). Got lofted like a polaris and lost sight of my board, took an age to body drag to it, madegood use of the rescue service again. Jon was setting up his 17 when I got in, managed to persuade him that was not such a good idea. He went out on the 12 and was sufficeintly powered. I launched my 11 but got going when chicken loop came undone, not sure about this riding unhooked at my level, got abit of a spanking (another rescue). These guys that work here have my upmost respect and they love it, gives you huge confidence to go for it. Must remember that they won't be there when back at Borth. Having top time.
