We will be up and down a bit, but will catch up for a sherbet or two at the Bar and Grill.

Little update had a nice 1.5hours on the water yesterday clocked 18.5knots ish according to garmin. Rig 8.8 Naish - check, Water starts - check, up haul - check, heaps of dun - check Did manage both feet in straps planing a few times on the Kailua 180l also did my first half real gybe (mmm weird as I don't gybe) not sure what happened there but will take it ??
It is a bit like September shallow - showers are nice (if there is hot water) and the weather is perfect.

Brad and Greg here Brad headed today

Cheers

Hi Elanda regulars.
Planning on heading up to Elanda this weekend with family, was wondering if there are any boards 150-200ltr at Watersport hire there to throw one of my small wave sails on for the learners/ intermediates with us.

Used to be some larger hire boards there. Haven't seen them on the water for a while, I assume they are still there though.
From memory they were larger SUP type boards with basic learner rigs, maybe Bic?
If none of the crew that are there get back to you, give them a call at the office.

Finally got a chance to finish off our Christmas video - was fantastic to catch up with everyone. Our times at Lake Cootharaba are the highlight of our somewhat busy year. Our holiday is always made fantastic by the great friends we get to share some time with at and on the lake blasting away.

I can still windsurf - a good thing because don't get much time on the water with working 7 days - but still foot straps, planing, and even planing in light wind conditions...nice, even accidentally pulled of 2 reasonable light wind gybes. Man Jaye and I had soooo much fun.

Already looking forward to Easter - only a couple of months away woo hoo

&t=206s

Well there you go - just sold our Caravan so looks like looking for new on over Easter and maybe a windsurf if conditions stay good at Viccy Point.

We decided to upgrade our van and put it on the Market after Christmas with no replies until last week and they liked it so much they took it.

Nice.... Anita is happy keen on a full van - long story short we will not be at Elanda this Easter - will be watching for updates thou

Have a great Holiday everyone

Cheers
Morgs and Anita
