Trip to Tasmania

March 2011: James Cox, Paul Hunt & partners set off on a windsurfing adventure to explore the Tasmanian wilderness. Here are the pictures that tell their story.

North Western Tasmania. The convoy made it’s way from Hobart up to Marrawah, where on arrival, the wind and swell were ready but the windsurfers weren’t. James carrying out essential maintenance.

Paul already in the action, getting a real nice bottom turn back into the section. A really nice taster session for Tasmania.

Shortly followed by James getting his first waves… With a mix of cross-onshore conditons swinging round to cross shore wind – waves were being ridden in both directions during this session at Nettles.

Of course, no trip goes completely smoothly. The board bag became collateral damage as the driver’s knowledge of 3 point turns came under fire. (Just to confirm, that’s Paul Hunt.)

A great picture from Becky of the beach front at Green’s (the main beach at Marrawah). Perhaps it was due to the fact Marrawah supposedly has the cleanest air in the world, but the light was frequently incredible.

This ‘onboard’ shot was taken during a ‘double dip’. The conditions were cross-onshore 24 kts; whereas only a 4 minute drive around the coast it was light, down the line wave-riding. Crazy but great.

Make it your job to know where the rocks are, then don’t hold back.

Breakfast the Tassy way: bacon and eggs with a view. Hang on, there is something missing!…

A great tasting cup of Tea – Lifeboat Tea.

Tasmania provided plenty of opportunities to surf. Hugo woke up early this morning. And by the time everyone was out of bed, he had already made the paddle out to the reef. It was well worth catching him up.

South of Hobart lies Bruny Island. This session at ‘The Neck’ in aptly named ‘Adventure Bay’ was highly memorable due to the powerful beach break. You had to be quick!
