Sweet KBay

Kimmeridge Down The Line

Opinions were mixed about the best time to sail KBay today. With low tide being from about 10am until 1pm, I opted to arrive at lunchtime for the tide on the push. As I drove into the rammed car park, most people were coming off the water and I was a little concerned I may have missed out. Not to worry, shortly afterwards the wind came back. I rigged a 5.2 and headed out. Perfect down the line sailing. Except that as the tide turned the wind went ballistic. I tried downhauling the life out of my 5.2 but it was still too much so I accepted defeat and re-rigged a 4.2 on the Ledges. Most of the waves pushing through were head to logo high but the occassional mast high monster came through. I was fortunate enough to pick one out and bottom turned back up the peeling wave to smack the lip perfectly. So much time to get in the right place on waves that big! But it's a big old steep drop back down the face... Awesome!
