Took the family up to GB and had a good day with Oldschool, Dags, families with all kids getting on boards at some time.
My two 11 year olds on a tyronsea 370 with a 3.4 gaastra maverick wave sail (courtesy of Geoff). they prefer the old $35 board than the more modern wide starboard go 155, they recon they go faster on the old long board.
Some unedited footage of one late in the day and getting tired. note the one handed sailing and thumbs up at about 5:44 - 5:50. and ignore my yelling instructions to him.
these action cams not real good for far away shots. Sorry its quite long

Great work there Lungs! Was awesome to see some junior wind warriors in action.. All hail the 'longboard.' A Fun day was had by everyone. Lets get the young gun crew together again ASAP.

That's a great little spot for the family and learner's.
Was a really nice cruise all around the place, sparring with Andrew on his F1 Speed V's Wally.
Wife really liked meeting everyone, and Daughter liked it until she cut her feet.
I don't think it'll be a problem getting her back this time though, as she enjoyed mixing with the other Kid's.
Great to meet some more crew, we'll be back.
Cheers.

Watchout grich I have got dibs on xantos if oldskool decides to sell lol

Yeah GB is one of our favorite locations - in fact it was where I first stepped onto a board - with a lesson from Collin and still love it there - hope to get there again soon

Moz, we took over a massive area at the beachfront near Gemini. Great to see all the kids sailing around. In all we had 7 kids on the water n 1 adult learner. Even had passers by asking if we do lessons!!!

Bit like time travel, thought I was looking back to 1987. Just need a few Bombora Big Toys in there to mix with the Tyronsea's and you got a full 80's typical day of sailing
