Took a 4 hour lunch. Thought about trying some vulcans on the big board, but didn't. Thought a lot about trying some forwards on the smaller board, but didn't. Turns out I can't really get the board to pop when I'm in the ready position, unhooked with my back hand back on the boom, ready for da loopin action. Guess I need to work on popping while in that position. Or not, who knows. Had several contorted jumps where it felt like my left latissimus dorsi was on the verge of tearing. Not sure what those jumps looked like, or what you'd call them. Probably "Messed Up Jumps", although they might have been semi-almost table tops, I'm not sure. I'm back down to 0% on push tacks, although this probably has a lot to do with not sailing at Bird as often. Much warmer day than anticipated. Got hot in the full suit and had to get wet to cool down. PSB: Full Sail Pale Ale
