Hope this SW wind drops before Sunday morning!

Interesting laser graphix Noponies. I’ve changed up the plywood bait board on my Reload as I find they de-laminate.    Now use solid timber and I v-carve the graphics using a tool path program call Aspire.  The cutting sequence is run on Mach3 using a CNC router.  Two x coats of epoxy resin finishes the job.   Recently cut one for G Dog.        Have a look when we catch up.

Hey Tuppawaka more the merrier I say see you there.

Its likely 12knots westerly sunday so not perfect but not dangerous. A 45cm snapper should win it Wink

They look good Moken. I should be able to do something similar on the laser cutter at work. We have just got a Thunderlaser, and I need excuses to use it to figure out how it works. Will be keen to check out what you have done.

Yep, looks windy for tomorrow morning. Wind guru have it at 20knots.

Drew pay Raymond ( Mark ) at Taylors before you head out.

Noponies windguru says we currently have 2-2.5m surf when its about .5m. Swellmap at 14knots for 9am and then dropping away as the day goes on. 20 knots is too much for yakfishing. We are transitioning off the low into the high. I guess we just turnup and see how it is.

Jordan dropped off some prizes, I added a few.

Think it really has to turn nasty for us to call this thing off now. We'll make a call this evening and final call 0630 on beach tomorrow...

Come on piwi always check the swell direction aswell. That's showing an offshore swell 😂. Boatshow was busy nothing overly flash on fishing gear sales.

I agree with Dt . If it had to be moved to another date so be it. It needs to be fun . Don't get me wrong Iam keen as but its got to be fair to all levels of paddlers .
