77 So...yesterday. Checked the wind, was blowing 0, gusting to 1. Mike Mac called me a couple hours later and convinced me down to Bird with a good report and I actually wound up planing. It dipped later. I got the cowboy trick several times. Non-planing I tried that move the Gecko we were trying to figure out. I couldn't bury the nose but I understand the motions now and I'd like to try again. A fun after session with Sam, Mike, Rachel, Mike, Paul, Randy, probably too much fun actually. Today passed up windsurfing to learn to surf and to my surprise got up 10 or so times. A sport I'd like to do maybe twice a year. A great weekend.
