Third time lucky, finally got out the back after getting trashed in the fluky winds and horrendous rip

The guy in the forground wasn't so lucky, his kit survived but his legs bear the scars of Hookipa's rocks.

Excellent pic, can imagine it was bigger & scarier than the pic suggests,

It was mast high, that was the lull between the sets (that's why I managed to get out). The wind was very off shore so it took ages to get upwind to get back in again.

More pics. This one is the return to the beach after ages of hacking upwind then timing the run in to avoid the sets

Beach post mortem. Check out the razor sharp lava in the shore break behind.

fantastic pics!
Al how come wind surfers get away with 950*1050 pixels?

Give me a chance..... I hadn't seen it yet.... Most of the pics were a perfect size, and even the last one which was pretty large was still only 57kb... Quite a lot smaller than the 1300kb images you used to post!!
