Finally, planing conditions on a Saturday! Headed up to Santa Pola in the afternoon as 4bft onshore was predicted. Rigged 7m as it was more like 3-4 and sideshore but as predicted it swung round to full onshore (small chop) and really wound up, so fantastic for some blasts up and down the beach. I buzzed down to the Sata Pola Windsurf club feeling somewhat overpowered to see Sebastian who just moved over from Germany (a Baltic Sea sailor!). Headed back up the beach to the car suffering from overpower and ridiculous spin-out so changed down to 5.4 which was just the ticket. By that point the bay was really busy, half and half kiters to windsurfers. Some huge gusts made it a tricky day though, lots of kiters getting embarrasing body drags along the beach in various poses and one gust that brought every single kite down! As for the temp, it is still fresh in the water (I was the only rider in a shorty and got some odd looks) but 20ยบ outsude. Basically a fantastic Saturday for once and a great day for my second outing on the Carve. Someone out there had a bad day though as there was ambulance action at around 5, hope they are ok....
