Gwithian, UK or Topocalma, Chile, both for cross-off port tack down the line, and Pozo, Gran Canaria or Coronation Beach, Australia when there is a swell for fun onshore riding and jumping.
4.2 Simmer Blacktip with 370 NoLimitz mast and 63l Simmer custom, either for float and ride or powered side shore jumping!
Bananas, chocolate, sandwiches, pasta-anything I can get my hands on!
Depends how the session went! Maybe Jack Johnson, John Mayer, Mumford and Sons…generally more chilled stuff!
Logo high down the line, starboard or port, with smooth turquoise waves onto a sandy beach (no rocks!), and in a 3mm Summer suit or boardies with the sun shining and a few friends. Sailing until I can barely walk, then having some food already prepared for me and a campfire on the beach. Mmmmmmm….
I am going to work a little on my freestyle to help my wave moves, such as gu-screws, shuv-its, punetas, as well as continuing to work on my jumping; stalled forwards on port tack, forwards on starboard, backloops both sides and also pushloops.
Probably carrying the gear, especially when there is no wind to make the sail feel lighter! Or screwing foot-straps in every time you travel?!
Going over the rocks at Punta Blanca, Fuerteventura in a logo high swell (for the second time that trip) when I was still getting into wavesailing… Luckily I only had a few cuts and bruises and a little kit damage.
Backside aerials and frontside cutbacks.
Booms perhaps? and definitely a NoLimitz Team trip to Mauritius to do some essential testing
