No wind at Luby's, so on to Bird. Saw Randy trying what looked like a flaka, so I asked him if he was trying flakas, so then he was like all "yes" and then I was like all "i'm gonna try them too" and he was all like "right on." Some of them could actually be called attempts, while others would be better classified as meta-attempts. One of the attempts evoked a "whoooo" from Randy, and i later made sure that it wasn't just a sympathy "whoooo". Got some good pointers, but eventually got into a rut of repeatedly incorrectly trying to throw the board around with my feet, which I was warned about earlier. Saw Randy throw a forward, so I thought I should try one too...but never did. Tried a planing small board duck tack, which didn't go horribly. Forgot to try more of those. This was the best President's Day windsurfing mini-vacation ever.
