great wind yesterday ,because we don't get much big winds here ...i don't have many small sails ,so at 53-62 kms winds the 5.0 EZZY wave
was the choice on my newish 100 litre RS Exocet slalom board ...

vid coming soon ..

glad its drop to 45 klm today ,a bit sore ..its on again ..

I hope it ok to use a wave sail on a slalom board

Ther are some pretty wild storms coming through now and then, but wind chill factor is way too high for me in my old age. The snowfields are far more appealing. Looks like epic speed conditions for Sandy Point this Saturday, but I am going in search of Powder snow.

Interesting to see those Mallard Ducks on your island. Introduced from the Northern hemisphere. They are quite tasty. Do you have an open season?

Nice video! The Rs have a lovely floaty feel. It looks like you're enjoying the board.
You get plenty of gybe practise sailing there.

Sure do Sue, yes they do feel floaty for their size , it's the tail width I would say I find it easy to sail and gybes and tacks well for its size , I just forgot wave sails dump their power quick , but by the end of the session, I got they hang of it , great board and scoots along

Nice video Tardy. The water is so clean and healthy. Unlike "stinky n brown" we get here in Adelaide (at least the Northern beaches). We call it "The brown tide"

How come your video is blurry ?. Is that moisture in your camera enclosure ?
