I have less time for windsurfing these days but the extra daylight in spring and summer bring some opportunities. This year was pretty average I would say. 3 wave sessions on my 4.3m at Hove in august was probably the highlight. Probably about 15 sessions the whole year.
I was in Fuerte in feb but was recovering from gastroenteritus so missed most of the wind which was at the start of the holiday . Missed my normal october cornwall trip as there wasn't anything worth heading down for the week I was free. I've saved the holiday though, so should be a trip in the offing sometime this year .Going to interviews, hence wind is back. In case you were wondering...

I bought some elbow & knee pads for biking. If you fall around here it can be serious (sharp volcanic rock everywhere, as you know). Also, just took delivery (today) of a Rockshox Reverb (Stealth) dropper seat post for my full-suss e-Mtb, which should also help make the rides safer.

Poor first half - marred by too much work overlapping with what wind there was. Terrible second half due to weather and broken arm (although looking at the weather i dont think i have missed much). Im desperate to get out there for first time since a pretty poor session in Sept.........
Great 2 weeks in Vass though, but the week in Langebaan didnt deliver much - same again booked this year!

13 good days in Tiree in August (including my best DTL day for years at Crossapol), 5 in Tiree in October and apart from that it was pretty crap! In 2015 I sailed a lot at Camber, Avon, Goring & Bracklesham as well as Hayling but 2016 a few days at Hayling, one 'wrong' tack day at Avon and a cross shore day at Bracks is all I can remember.
Nothing in 2017 yet but I'm retiring in March so I live in hope.
