Don't think I've seen rain like that since 'Nam. Coming back from the beach I met rivers not roads. There were 4 headed fish blocking the way. It's damned hard to fit in a windsurf after school these days. Managed to get out at Avon in the squalls, powered with a 4.2 on and off for 40 mins. You couldn't even see the water for rain and dark, blind leading the blind. Good swell lines though and indicator of the weekend to come, plus although Avon is generally a pretty soft wave but the angle of attack always makes it loadsa fun. Is it really going to be 30 knots, cross off with 7.2 metre swell and 13 second period, if it is we have got the camera ready.
