Dave made the call for Paulinapolder. A warm windy december day, with Southerly winds and low tide around noon, is Paulina time!

Forecast was great, 22-35kt SSW 15° partly sunny.

Bummer, I had to work at the firestation, so no go for me. Untill this morning, where I couldn't hold it and made arrangements to be able to skip work and go along with Dave.

It looked great at arrival, next to the small slalomboard and 6.3m I prepared the Speed 50 and Dave took his new Speed 54. 

To be brief, apart from the temp, nothing of the forecast filled in, in fact I was able to do one single run, for the rest it was nothing. Waiting for the wind to fill in, sometimes it was looking hopefull, but the wind never came. Tides don't wait for the wind so....soon it was time for the long walk back.... 

Can only be better next time!
