Wow! Epic day at the Pit. Arrived to find the water looking very "angry" and decided to go small. I rigged the 5.0 (never used) then had another look at the water. Decided to go silly and  unwrap the 08 4.4 KA koncept that hasn't been out of the bag in 2 years. I took the bubble wrap off the mast and put it all together. I Grabbed the Missiles and the 21 Assy Ka fin(also never used). As all the small gear was out for the first time I took the old faithful missile "s" so things werent too different. Did consistant 46 peaks and decided I had hit the top end of the Missile "s" speed. Went back and grabbed the Missile "xs" and instantly put on 2.5 knots. As I became more used to the gear the speeds got faster and faster.  The 3rd run showing 49.48 on the dail. Unfortunately I only did the 3 runs on the small board before the tide was lapping at the car and had to call it a day. I really needed 2 more runs to get the average up as I had 47.88, 47.12, 47.1, then 2 at 44's on the big missile. Could have been mid 47 average.....
I picked up a weight jacket on the way home and next time will run some weight and maybe the 5.0.
The 4.4 Koncept felt awesome in the gusts and the 21 KA assy fin was as reliable and smooth as its big brother(23assy).
Congrats to Spotty as he has done some amazing speeds. He definately deserves this success and has a great "no techno" attitude which is refreshing in this sport. He will be pirched on top for a long time I'm sure. Well done mate.
cheers Tony
