Here's a couple of random pics from today's light wind cruise, on old retro gear, at Primbee.

Nothing radical, just a nice day for a bit of testing on some kit i had never sailed before.

Good times.

Thanks, so were you on that nice Kiwi Carbon Art board. It looked like a winner.

Everyone was having fun, always seems to be a good crew at Primbee.

I will add some video when i sort out the editing.

cheers

Nice gybes! I expected the video to cut away, but no, they were good!

It's a shame there wasn't more wind to lay down some quick ones.

That is fanging it! Great video, cant wait til the next westerly, I have a spare gps you can take out next time if you're interested in seeing how fast it goes, pretty quick from the looks of it

Thank you Dezza, sure!

Dags might be keen.

I wave sail ,as you know, I was just wizzing about looking for a ramp to get some air lol

Anyway It was just a mess around day, on Dag's board !!!

I am looking forward to trying my Thommen board at Primbee, it's away for repairs at the moment. I'm expecting that to be faster..

I had fun with all you speed demons.

Good Times had by all.

How shallow is Primbee is it like Budgy where you need delta fins?

Don't always need deltas at primbee but they come in handy for low tide days, but you do need small weedies tho, 20-24cms or 26+ if you sail further out

Sputnik 265 drooooool. That's a rocket ship.

Smooth gybes. Reminds me of my Pederson 260 slalom. Bright yellow. That was a great board.
