This topic is just for you Bob. And yes the XR6s are out there. :grin:
Sunset was fun, but the wind was bumpy, and it got squirrelly in the late afternoon when the T-Storms arrived. Big crowd, such a warm wind, even shorties were allowed. :mexican:

Great day at Laurentia beach too. 8"s and 9's all afternoon. When the wind went SW late in the day the waves to the south of our house along the reef were only 2-3 ft but super smooth. It was a very good boosting day.

Wow... what a windy afternoon/evening at Pat. A five, six or a seven on a twin tip was plenty. The forecasts really fell short of the actual conditions. Great wave day, and there were some awesome boosts out there. Super crowd, and warm and sunny behind the tree line. :grin:

You guys had the "RedBull Windnugget"

Shared Delta with a quartet of Southport Heli pilots.
Nicely lit on 11's 'till she shut right off, just before sunset.

John met me at Twin Beach and delivered his 135 mako. We both rode 9's. I traded back and forth between foil, 150 and 135 mako depending on the wind. T B is a very good place to foil as it gets deep right away. I will go back in a N to NNE. John got as far as the TB point as he was thinking of going to check out all those pilots at St Ambroise.

Best waves of the season for me so far. Me maxed out on my 6m most of the time. Spraying buckets of water in my cutbacks and riding it out through the rainbows. 🏄‍♂️🤙😎
"the best ride... was my last ride." 🏄‍♂️😎🤙

Nice Myron as I can almost visualize your wave session.

A Wild side off session, at Dave's.
Does it still count as a "Board Off" even if the rider doesn't have the board in his hand?

Not sure Bob but it was both fun and scary to watch! It was a bit of a gong show at times watching the brave 7 who kited in the SE at Laurentia Beach. Thanks again Bob for the mako rescue. 9 m and small mako in the afternoon, 11 in the morning
