Week 3 and its been an up and down one.
Just come up to the end of the second week and we have been getting some nice conditions, 4.2 with some nice waves. I’ve done a few evening sessions in a row now, and it’s been brilliant, like 3 or 4 people downwind and then sailing back just after the sun has set.
So it’s my first year competing/finishing the UK wave series (now the BWA series) and I’m really happy with not just my overall result but also my individual results for each event as I have managed to improve each time on the previous event also beating slightly better people each time. I’ve learnt heaps this year when it comes to wave sailing and although I considered myself more a freestyler at Uni I’m now really enjoying the waves as well. That said I’m off to Jeri in a few hours for 5 weeks which will be mainly freestyle, although I hear the waves are big enough for backies/pushies so I’ll get them sorted and a whole load of other tricks hopefully.
I almost didn’t make this event as I had already decided not to go because the cost of getting all the way down there and entering, etc. was close to making me bust before Jeri (leave on Wed…siiiick).
