Board: '14 JP 93 FWP         Sail: '16 EZZY 5.3 ELITE

014 - Bigger than expected out to SI#1 and back. Just twice to the north end due to limited power. Lots of chop, small holes and sorta gusty.

Board: '14 JP 93 FWP         Sail: '16 EZZY 4.7 ELITE

013 - Out to SI#1 and back but rigged a bit too small.  Good around the signs at the spoil and in between the holes, especially inside making the drop-off limited. Maybe the start of a long windy week.

After our 3 hour companion rescue clinic, went for an hour until herm closed. Back foot set at 12 degrees and it felt fine. No control at all yet on switch stance, where the recovering ankle is the one in charge.

012 - Sunny, warm and breezy. Early was out to SI#1 and SI#2 late. Going out was most consistent, holes mid-way off the point were tough, along the drop-off was OK, a couple of times to the north end. Lots of activity.

I should have driven to Corpus!! I do not know if I will ever sail here again. The forecast is always wrong. I have never felt the drive was worth it.

011 - It's been awhile for this launch and when it's more southerly it's easier chop than BIB.  Out  3/4 of the way to the IWC bridge and back.  First half was a bit under but ended with mostly full power.  Great sunny day with 2:1 kite/wind surfers and a full parking lot.

Lasted maybe 7 runs on a beautiful clear day where Mt Jefferson and its fellow volcano bumps were visible. Was able to lean hard into turns unlike the previous weeks.

Moved the back foot angle from 15 to 7.5 degrees, which may have been kinder to that knee since there were no complaints from it this time.

A very fun morning at BIB. It was cloudy with very light rain, but very good wind with big gusts, especially on the outside. I was fully powered on the 5.3m2. Starboard tack jumps at Bird! Butter smooth port jibatorium right up close by Worldwinds made C360s a breeze until the wind backed off a little. Vulcan attempts were rubbish and scary since I do mine on starboard. Nina was doing numerous Flaka attempts today on the inside. I tried a few, but I just can't seem to pop the board out of the water on port tack, which is my best tack for upwind 360's. I don't think I have ever sailed in conditions like this at BIB before, because we would normally sail Port A on a North wind day. Mike sailed both at Port A and The Packery. I probably should have, but I was craving more freestyle action.

Another one and done day. The knee that resides above the ankle complains too much when the transition from heel to toe side is sloppy or quick.
