I can only get along for a quick look before a 4pm appointment in Ashington.

It's like a proper spring day out there at the moment.
The southerly's should warm things up.

Ally/Rob

Will check the beach (Blyth) when I get home (12:30) then probably head on up to Boulmer for 1:30, Think Mike can make it too.

See you there.

Steve B and I may head for Blyth, but as there is NO wind here in Morpeth just now, it'll probably not happen.

Sorry I missed your call Steve, the wind started to blow at Blyth at about 2.30, but still was not solid enough to tempt me out today. Hope you all found some wind somewhere.

I hit Seaburn about 1pm to steady cross shore winds and a sizable chop once clear of the small beach break.  6.2m sail and 96L board suited the conditions well and gave me a good 2 hours playtime.  1 other windsurfer (Russel) and several kiters made it a sociable blast if still a bit chilly.

Some of the gusts that came through would have suited my 5.4m better but was able to hang on and catch a few ramps on the way out.  The runs back in were fast to say the least, catching the swell running cross-on and accelerating back into the beach.

A great little session and my trusty blister has returned to keep me company during the lighter days.

Arrived at Boulmer on the high tide (2 ish) just before Ally, Mike and Rob. The wind at home wasn't very inspiring but as you drove up the coast the trees began to sway more and more. 30 knts S it was as we rigged, and a little gusty, Ally only brought big kit so stayed dry, Rob rigged the smallest he'd brought (5.8) and me and Mike were on 4.5. Mike headed for the flatish water to the south of the Haven while Rob and I stayed upwind of the undulating, moored fishing boats, Rob catching some air and I just managing to waterstart in the swell! After a short rest we joined Mike to the South and the falling tide brought flater water as the wind turned more Easterly and became less gusty.
A great afternoon session with Rob going absolutely ballistic with his 5.8 and Mike pulling off numerous waterstarts.

I arrived at blyth to see phil on 5.0m in a gusty southerly and a decent swell to play in. I rigged a 5.3m on F2 94, and it was up/down but i planed 80% of the time and caught some decent waves. A nice mild february day and worth getting wet for. some nice wave rides and a few rinses refreshed the spirits!
