Nice vid mate.....getting a little thin on the ground in places....hope the skis survived the rocks at the end of the vid!!!
I was up there too on the 17th playing around in Cocks Harbour along the Charlottes Pass guide poles. I found the wind a tad gusty, (15-25knots), so I downsized to my 2.5m Peter Lynn 4 line handle foil. Still had some amazing runs clocking 50kph at times, which was a bit hairy with the exposed rocks and scrub around!
Unfortunately that was my last run this year, as the rest of the month is committed, but the conditions are only fair anyway, with lots of rocks and scrub (the NW heat wave earlier in the week wouldn't have helped neither). Probably a bit better heading towards Mt Tate, but even there I could see in the vid the exposed rocks etc. But, for you that probably gives you more of a challenge!!!
Bring on next year!
