w of people met up at Mooloolaba to wish pete a happy birthday last weekend and to go windsurfing. I've personally known peter for nearly 30 years as had many others there to share the joy. peter is one of the fathers of windsurfing in Australia. peters contribution to windsurfing in Australia is substantial! he has been shaping and building boards for 40 years in Australia. those of us lucky enough to have thumbed through his scrap book have been given a rare insight into the sport over the last 40 years. what did peter do for his birthday? took his favourite quad for a spin. the rest.

been windsurfing for just on eight weeks now - trying to get out as much as possible - have had two weeks off work and have been out a few times. I generally get to Wello and have met some really nice people - windsurfing people seem to be very friendly - it certainly helps when you feel, man I am just going to sell the board Too Hard! I am 105k - purchased a 200l mistral pacifico with a dodgy retro 4.5m sail and rig, was enough to get me going - I did purchase a new Severne 6m synergy this week from Simon at Board Crazy and have been out once so far - wow what a difference.

Spent the next hour phusting and schlogging - occasionally getting a little tease at the possibility of planing. Sometimes I feel like I'm stuck in a parallel universe where I took the blue pill and everybody else took the orange one ;-( In hindsight probably needed a bigger sail - occasional whitecaps on the water. Wind gusts showed promise with odd purposefull acceleration bearing off before I ran out of downwind. Had enough of the required 'development' time and used the last of the daylight to take the longboard out. What a difference - same sail - no changes - I'm off and accelerating WaHoo :-). :-) Able to get on the plane and head away from the shore. Felt good power fro... >>
