So im half way through the trip now and all i can say is this year has been classic Cape Town. Lots of sailing , Surfing and on occasion having the od beer ;). Been sailing the Goya custom 84 quad most sessions and i am really loving this board. Super good for when it has been 4.7 wobble and ride and still good when its been 4.2 overpowered at Big bay.
Me and Bubble had one of the biggest surfs of the trip at big bay on Saturday. With a 5.4m swell forecast we new it was going to be big everywhere so we went for big bay. Waves were about 10ft in the sets and i can safely say i was Crapping it on a number of the big ones. Had one decent wave and then called it a day after what felt like we both had been paddling for 2 hours solid.
Today the wind was back good enough for 4.5. Still some swell around so was good to get some decent riding back on the cards. Forecast looks good for the next 5 days so hopefully it will stay like that but who knows. Been pretty full on with sailing so hopefully my next session i am going to try get some pictures sorted out :).
