Overview

Well had a nice little session on Sunday morning at Pauatahanui. The wind was about 16kts E, SE and remarkably steady. Launched just off Mana Esplanade at the Western End of the Inlet. Was able to tack about 6 times before I was doing long runs up to the Northern end of the Inlet. Nice flat water and relatively safe as the inlet is shallow and you can stand up if you get yourself in the trouble. Definitely worth checking out, I’ve noticed it blows around 16kts in a E, SE and in town there is hardly anything. ew things to note: – Only good for Intermediate riders and up as launch area is quite small. – Only good in E, SE (that Ive noticed) – Needs to be around high tide time, couple of hours either side.
