Sail: 5.3 Naish Wing Surfer

I was very overpowered at times but did get practice at spilling off power. Although I kept asking myself, "why aren't I windsurfing?" It was reading 17 and didn't look windy from shore, so I thought it was clearly a foil learning day, but there turned out to be some killer gusts. I hit the ledge for the first time. I was able to run it out and didn't fall or get hurt. Hopefully I got that rite of passage out of the way and won't repeat it! I got cruising well in both directions and increased my comfort level on starboard. Also figured out turning downwind in a controlled way and riding off of the wind.
