Last Minute Nor’wester

I had been planning to go and check out the surf in South Sound on Saturday morning to test out a surfboard I had recently bought and fixed, but Windguru was showing NW wind first thing in the morning, so I went to investigate.

Seven Mile Beach was windy and wavy, an after checking out Royal Palms and Public Beach, I settled on Royal Palms, as the direction was quite North, and it was windier there.

I rigged the 5.7 and got about half an hour of planning conditions before it dropped and the wind shifted direction.  The next hour was more a slog and surf, but I did manage to catch a few decent waves.  After that the wind shifted NNE and was too light to continue.
