ouch.... that's a real tough question! judging from what we've had in the past week you'd have been best off with the fuel 17... but the settled weather that we've been having loox like it's about to finish so that tends to mean more wind. it's been 10-15 knots during the past week.. more on occasions. the winds at this time of year tend to be quite light so i don't think you'll need your 10m x3.

as for spots.

mission bay, meola reef or pt chev in a NW... for mission bay the wind has to be strong or it's far too crowded here.

shakespear bay in a strong sw or s (25 knots +), shoal bay in moderate sw (15-20).

orewa in moderate to strong ne

bramley in northerly thermals

huia in sw thermals

strong westerlies go to ihumateo rd or if low tide then go to west coast for waves.
