047 -  A little less today and smaller rig worked good.  Just out between the spoils and returns along the bank, a few to the end.  Not all that many on the water for such a good week-end.

Lots of people out enjoying a gorgeous day. I feel comfortable on the 4.8 instead of it feeling like Goliath. Got a post sesh lesson from Roxanne on in-the-straps upwind and downwind 360s.

Afterwork happy (two) hour sunset session scored. It has been windy all week down here and the forecast looks to be shutting down, so I got here as soon as I could. Dallas foiler Bruce M. was there to sail with me. Lots of 360s, Donkeys, and a few vulcan attempts. I have some video, but nothing new. I got my right foot stuck in the straps after a blown duck. That was scary. It would have been a matching foot injury if I was in the waves. Thankfully, I got it to release. I am not sure how to prevent this stuff.

Generally over-powered on the 3.8. Water starts were way too easy. Not sure how this new sail compares to the Pryde 3.7. Felt like I could have easily been on the 3.2. Definitely the 3.5. Still working on trying to tighten up the gibes and jybe on the swell.

Bitmap was WingShot foiling. Looked like it might have been his first session at it. He made great progress. His board was strapless, maybe strapful is easier.

046 - After dry run yesterday, rigged a bit too big and didn't change. Mostly out between the spoils and back, a few times to the north end. No lack of power, got stung inside baggies, luckily on the outside of leg.

I love the wall on days like this. It is such a playground of swell with wide open space. My soul fills with happiness.

The sensor seemed to be lying. The 3.5 and 66L frequently wasn't enough, but occasionally was. I found myself wishing I was foiling instead. Occasionally pretty good swell that I rode all the way down to the next parking area.

New massively discounted Mutant. Very different outhaul rigging. Pretty much zero outhaul is required. Not quite negative outhaul.

Banner day at Cole Park! I was perfectly powered and appreciating how much I love these sails. I got some random things I have not tried in a while, maybe years, on the first try - pirhouette jibe and a monkey duck jibe. They were so smooth but obviously partly luck, because I did not repeat them on the second try. Haha. Got some really smooth wave face ducks, some epic crashes, and Lawrence was trying/making loops, so after a little group talk and self pep talk, I tried one. It resulted in a right hip slap. I'll have to reconstruct how far I got around, but I think not very. But at least Randy recognized it for a loop attempt, and maybe I've broken my 10-year inertia and will try again. Isn't looping before 40 a midlife crisis thing all windsurfers need to experience? We shall see...

045 - Out between the spoils, moderate chop and full power rigged at max.  Only small holes along the drop-off.  A couple more to go.
