Wellington Wave Champs / Freewave Round 1

The Wellington Wave Champs 2010 (also the first round of the freewave) was held today at Plimmerton in some pretty extreme conditions at times. The surf was large for plimmy with shoulder to head high waves breaking on the shore and it was windy. The gusts in excess of 40 knots with most sailors battening down the hatches on flat 4.0s.
I was pretty stoked as I quite like these types of conditions and seem (from previous experience) to have an advantage. On the other hand the competition was going to be stiff. This event is the first time we have seen all the top Wellington sailors together at one time. Tim Haxell who has been in awesome form recently, Tom Taylor the former international freestyle wizard now back living in Wellington, Tim Bamford just before he moves back to Maui, and of course the always on form Clayton Dougan.
