    Well done on 6th Arf and well done Mark D on winning the Masters.

    Arf have you learned to forward on port now?

    Great to meet you Arf!
    Conditions were pretty bad/challenging but it really was a very welcoming and fun event...i kinda wish id competed rather than just caddy for Archie! Not for the competitive element per se - but the great feeling of camaraderie and crack across all the divisions..good skills

    Great to meet you too Northy, and well done to Archie!
    Always good to put a face to a name.

    Haha no, I was desperately trying to plane on the starboard tack and head out to get a forward in, but couldn't get deeper than knee deep going that way. So I tried one port forward, board stuck to wave and had a catapult from hell. On deconstruction, I didn't sheet out before launch. Need way more port practice. Even when waveriding I was opting for a backside attack with the left foot forward rather than going the correct way around.

    Determined to get more port practice in, because avoiding port tack in contests is seemingly impossible.

    There's nothing on the BWA page(s) as I type this
    I am surprised. My facebook feed was littered with information, photos and videos all weekend - I thought engagement on social media was excellent, as it was for Tiree. Its got me motivated to maybe try and compete again. The PWA could learn a thing or two...

    That sums up Facebook for you. It allows small groups to talk to each other whilst excluding everyone else.

    The lesson to be learnt by those in charge of publicity and PR is that you might think you are talking to everybody, but in fact you are not.

    There’s a similar problem with the Aloha Classic and the Luderitz speed event at the moment.

    I follow IWT and get lots of their usual and 'sponsored' posts.

    Not seen anything from Luderitz except for Profitt's stuff.

    The commentary for Maui has been horrendous. I really cannot stand Kai Katchadorian (sp?).

    No it doesn't, with the exception of secret groups where you have to be asked to join, facebook works very well, providing you are a 'joiner' rather than someone who just likes to post **** and not read or 'like' anyone elses. Which is why you're better off on a forum or better still what you should have done years ago and become a blogger.

    Click the like button now and again, it won't hurt you to recognise others are equally capable of posting interesting stuff.
