RemarksTangimoana to Plimmerton in record time! Super stoked with this solo effort, an hour average of 20.72, new NZ fastest time and top 10. I hadn't gone out specifically to do a fast hour time and was just part of the 100km run (3 hours 45 min). I had a quick 10 min food break at Waikanaie but apart from that didn't stop. The run down from Waikanaie was super slow with a difficult wind angle initially and then choppy gusty hardcore conditions coming into Plimmerton. The plan was to go as far as Makara but I thought better of it in the conditions.
Unfortunately I didn't have a second GPS on so this probably won't be an official NZ record. Felt like the hour run could have been even quicker had I not bailed a couple of times. There was a decent amount of surf running so the nose on the board got lost a few times on the way down. The North board was not ideal in the chop and surf.
New 9m Crossbow is really fast and stable so super stoked with it! Body handled things really well and I had relatively fresh legs at the end.
