First day at our local mountain/volcano. We didn't know what to expect, and we were very pleasantly surprised at the whole setup.

The scenery is amazing! A bank of almost ominous clouds zooming by in the near distance at seemingly 100's of miles per hour, making it look like you are experiencing a time lapse sequence in real life in real time. All this while the sun is shining on our pretty faces.

Interesting how the strong wind isn't really bothersome. You only notice it every now and then.

Video will not show it because half the card was filled with LWF and shlog. I came VERY close to pulling off a vulcan twice. I just had a little too much weight over the tail at the end. I predict I will finally land one in 2017.

080 - Overcast,dreary and spring like building from medium to over power. Out and back to the Horseshoe Spoil (submerged) and back on the sandbar. Also into the North Basin through at the No Boat cut and out to near the IWC weather station. Ended as it started to peak that continued until dark.

079 - Sunrise front but only got the last of it with a late start. Rigged at the north end and after a few round trips to the North Cabins worked up into the north basin. Fairly steady but only medium power. Bigger rig would have helped but not any longer since it dropped way off.

I awoke so ready to sail. It was windy in the parking lot @ 9am. Already 15mph, I was looking forward to a great day. By 10:45a, I couldn't take it anymore, and I headed to BIB. When I got there, I had a quick chat with Randy. It looked non-planing, and no locals. I decided, I would rig big and get right out on the water anyway. If I needed to rig down in the afternoon, no problem. A few really stong gusts right from the start made me feel like I rigged too big. Unfortunately, the gusts were short and there were big holes. Usually, I stay out and wear out in these up and down conditions by the time it fills in the afternoon. Around 1:30p, I decided to make myself come in for some rest and hydration, and that is when many of the locals showed up, rigged up and headed out. This time, the wind backed off instead of filled in. I went back out and stayed out on my same kit hopeful that it would eventually build back up, but it didn't. Oh well. It was warm and sunny. I am still glad I went down and got some windsurfing in this holiday.

078 - Hoped for a long one but it dropped fairly early, still got the peak. Out and back to SI#1, nice around the signs at the spoil. Inside was OK sailing up to shore but power was hit and miss. Maybe a dozen on the water.

So much fun! I got to do the demo day and got an hour using a 130L board and 4.7. Beautiful weather and lots of people out. I did some helis, DJs, BWJs, BWDJs, SB360s, so basically just the most forgiving LWF stuff, but the board made things very stable and easy, and the sail was still enough to water start. I probably could have gone and gotten a bigger sail and planed but I didn't expect the wind to come up like it did, and I was having too much fun to want to use my time switching gear. I am really glad to have redeemed my previous session, which was one of my worst. My sandy booties no longer have to sit outside the front door in protest.
