Ahh - finally.  Have had shiny new koncepts eating away at me for weeks!!  Got to the pit and found some good wind - got to try out more new stuff too with 21.5 KA Assy fin in the CA SP44.  Great to see so many at the pit and having fun.  With some decent wind like this and new stuff to test I only had one thing on my mind - 5x10 PB!!!  Have been burnt previously with 4 good runs and no 5th.  Today I had 3 pretty fast runs at the start - all 10s in the 40s, but then it started going backwards with easing wind.  I came back to the dunes and waited for a dark cloud with Ado, Jacques and Peter.  I think I did pretty well with the timing on that one which produced the peak.  For some reason my GT11 case fogged up then and I couldn't really make out my speeds - could just see the 4 at one end and so had to keep going.  Managed to get some decent runs in. 

Used the 5.8m KA Koncept '11.  Great sail.  I just swapped to KA without ever having sailed a koncept - must say I'm impressed and all the hype is well founded.  Good low end grunt really helped get the board going and it felt super stable and much much lighter in the hands than my old sails.  And - it was super fast!! 

So happy with the speeds today - I wasn't overpowered ever so there is much more to go in this setup for me - imagine when I get to take the 5.0 for a spin!!
