Dromana.. Great place.. and great conditions.. also my new home..

The last few days have been awesome and today I got to use my new Matador LT.. It was sooooo good.. and very different to the normal Matador.

This vid was from yesterday (3m normal Matador).. and hopefully I got some decent vid from today with my new 4m wing.

Very Nice video David,
Makes Victoria look like a tropical paradise.
I sure am envious.

DavidJohn,

You said the standard and LT Matadors are different, how so? Thanks.

The standard Matador pulls like a truck and pops you onto the foil quick but the added power of this wing has me concidering a harness where the standard WingSurfer wings never did.. It feels like they have changed the draft slightly with the LT and it feels different somehow.. The Y handles are gone.. and the windows are gone.. It felt like I could luff it or feather it in strong gusts without any flapping.. It feels smoother and the biggest change is the handles.. The LT has three long handles that feel great.. They feel stiff and chunky and you can actually move your hand forward and back on them without your hand slipping back to the center of the strap like some long handles do.. It feels lighter and still very stiff when pumping it.. I've ordered a 6m LT now..

Hi DJ. was that an easterly? We're going to be visiting friends down that way soon and trying to time it with a good wind direction

Hi.. and yes.. It was easterly.. Maybe a little southeast.

East/Southeast and West/Southwest works well..

Even Northerlies work down the Safety Beach end of Dromana..

This was another easterly day..
