taranaki windsurfer at the beach wavesailing

Pungarehu wasn’t quite doing it this day – but this beach break spot was cranking! Doesn’t need a whole lot of size before the wave starts having some consequence when the lip hits you. Broken mast, sail and UJ where the casualties of the day but a fair few lips got demolished in retaliation. ;) Critical timing was absolutely essential at this spot to get your top turn right, with some of the sections breaking in knee deep water.

Was pretty good session, with just a few of the usual crew and couple guys from Dunedin out there. Plenty of waves to share on the surf highway 45 today, and plenty to run away from too!
