So yea today was less windier than yesterday but luckily I found where the wind was. The wind line was literally right behind the red buoys marking the restricted area. The workers claim that the area is too shallow and are worried about people breaking fins as they have no extras but...from what I could tell it was a lot deeper in that area. Also if they were really worried about losing fins then they should consider tightening the fin screws a bit as I could literally yank around most of the fins on a majority if not all the boards...
Anyways though, I did manage a few runs past the buoys and WOW was it awesome! Consistent clean 15+mph winds past the buoys. Eventually they sent a boat out to inform me of the restricted nature of the area. If I was asked if it worth breaking the rules to get some wind...I would respond with a resounding YES!
This is basically how today's events played out!

In other news Tom @ Captain Kirk's just placed an order for Chinook Race Lines so I'll write a review on them sometime next week after I get back from the states. I also will try to get a set of those "clip on plastic" harness lines from Jurg @ WindSurfDeal. Looking forward to trying them out! So far I have used the following adjustable lines (and broke them):
Chinook In-Flight Adjustables (broke)
Dakine Competition Adjustables
Dakine Adjustable Lines (broke at rope)
NeilPryde Race Varios (here at Punta Cana)
I'll wrote a review on all of them later this week a long with my review on the Chinook Race Lines and Clip On Plastic lines.
Below is a picture of the tropical rain storms we get here. It came out of no where and is pretty darn heavy!

Seven more days till I return! Can't wait to get back out at Cabrillo! Jack and I will be sailing hard with our GPSes!
Till Next Time!
