I went to the annual Autumn Gales event run by Kayak Wavelogoy.
We did paddling on our own on Wednesday and Thursday and participated in the sponsored paid, supervised stuff on Friday and Saturday.
On Wednesday and Thursday it was really windy so we didn't get any actual tidal race surfing in, but we made up for that on the last two days when we surfed the flood on Friday, and both the flood and Ebb on Saturday.
The one day that really sticks out was the last day on the ebb on Sugar Reef when the conditions were really large. I surfed some of the waves, but since we had also been out playing on the flood a few hours before I really didn't have the energy to do much on the really big stuff on the outer reef. I also got a bit seasick near the end of it when the conditions became really really large.
