6-15 Tuesday definitely a Maybe

It's been on our radar for a few days. You won't be alone. Van Pugh for me. I think we may even see that guy from Vero Beach.

Rain shower? Pop ups today.

Edit: nope, saw the time stamp. Pop showers were earlier and, by that time, radar (Windy goes back up to 12 hrs) shows nothing.

Just Lanier being Lanier, I guess. Sad

Re: 6-15 Tuesday definitely a Maybe

I am in Town but I didn’t bring my gear because we are taking my wife’s electric vehicle back to FL and she doesn’t have a roof rack. Gas at $3.60 was an incentive to switch vehicles.
Be fun to see people. Maybe I could take a run on someone’s set-up while they rest!!

Neil,
Seeing that you do not have your winging gear with you, perhaps you could try windfoiling...

Re: 6-15 Tuesday definitely a Maybe

that was exactly my thought, Langdon. Sitting here while working, keeping an eye on the webcam and can't decide whether I should leave before or after my phone call Smile

Hope you got out there Langdon. Sorry I didn’t see your message until now - texting might have gotten my attention earlier.
It was real good - overpowered a lot with 6.4 (when I was rigging, that was smaller than others rigging then) but, being stubborn/ lazy about re-rigging, I stuck with it and covered 18miles in just over 2hrs. More swimming than I would have liked (gusts, tired, inexperienced, incompetent…?) but lots of good long rides as well.

Re: 6-15 Tuesday definitely a Maybe

I posted on the Facebook Page, but wanted to shout out to everyone how much fun yesterday was. The stoke in ATL is great. I might get more wind days in Vero but I don't have the fun group that you all have. Its usually just me or me and my friend Lundy. So yesterday was really cool seeing other people enjoying the water. I will be back in ATL on a more semi permanent schedule starting in September so it will be fun to hook up more often. The worst part is the drive, the best part, NO Sharks!!!

Neil

PS: You probably already noticed but High Country offers e-foil lessons. That would be a great way to quickly understand what it feels like to get up on foil. That was the hardest thing for me to wrap my brain around using just the Wing to learn.

Amazing day. Shame the wind meter was down at gilmer. I'd have loved to know what the gusts were.

Re: 6-15 Tuesday definitely a Maybe

Yeah we do have a great crew. We had a huge crew back in the late 80’s and 90’s then it thinned a bit but seems to be making a comeback with foiling and all the new wingers coming out. The people are the reason I drive an hour and a half to Lanier instead of going to Juliette or West Point.

No sharks, Just ghost and giant catfish.

When I first got out (shelving the 8.0 for 5.5) I saw some occasional spray coming off waves. I believe that happens at 30 mph. Good
