Following today's set up tips and tuition from Andy (many thanks!), I'm ready for another trip to Boulmer tomorrow.

Will be there from 12 for more flat water blasting, hooked in, both feet in the straps, with a little carve practice thrown in at each end

Hi Martin. Might join you, Boulmer is good in a Northerly and there should be some swell on the reef. However, wind is forecast for 19 knots in the morning dropping in the afternoon.
Any chance of meeting early to catch the wind? What is the tide doing??

Meeting some others there midday ish, 17knots all afternoon!

High tide 10.20, 3.8, low tide 4.30 2.0, so hopefully plenty of wind and water all day

Will check again in the morning!

Met Steve at Boulmer at 12 as Tony C was rigging and two holidaymakers were out enjoying the wind, Steve C was to be seen flitting back and forth across the reef despite picking up some kind of injury early on in the day?

The order of the day was 5.? with whatever board you felt comfortable with. The initial confused chop in the Haven settled down to perfect flat water as the tide receded, and Steve C called it a day as the reef became exposed. Mike arrived just as the two holidaymakers were packing up with families to attend to, both having a great sail by all accounts.

That left me, Tony C, Steve and Mike to have 3 hours of blasting and carving, Mike sailing his 97ltr Kombat most of the time. Steve B arrived just as we were packing away at low tide and showed that there was still plenty of water to have fun, reaching out of the flat Haven and into the waves through the gap in the reef on every run.

We packed away in glorious sunshine, Mike obviously having a great afternoons sail.

Lots of wind, probably 6+ near and beyond the reef when I hit the water, but stuck with 5.5 and 80 L for an hours really hectic blasting. If I'd had any sense I'd have changed down but the wind went a bit iffy so I switched up to 106L and the mayhem continued as it filled in again. Steve C reckoned he'd broken a rib or two in a catapult but the ends weren't poking through his wetsuit so he sailed on for about an hour and a half despite having problems water starting and sheeting in on the outside. Unbelievable but he said it was too good to miss.

Had a few problems last night and today. Bruised or broken ribs from a catapult, no where near the waves! Not sure if broken as no flail chest but bloody sore nonetheless.
Fantastic Boulmer session. Clean waves peeling down the reef to the channel. A bit cross on for riding but lovely vertical ramps for jumping. I love that place. Must move there!
