52 I forgot Foam Courage in Mass, but I realized I don't need it. I played hard today! Outbound, tried complete aerial JJs (crashing those but I'm still getting the mini-jump-into-dramatic-pivot ones). Tried a Willy. Not good but not catastrophic. Also experiemented a lot with hands-free sailing. Got up to 9 seconds. Did the double hand drag. (Almost but not quite ready for superman jump!! ;) Inbound mostly worked on UW360 and very nearly getting it. It's like a whole new move on this board compared with the score. You really dig the tail in and pivot rather than slide. But I have a whole new outlook on windsurfing now and no doubt I'll get it soon. I have a really good mentality right now. Confidence and enthusiasm levels are high. First day on Peter's 5.2 and I love it!! Stiffer than the '04, which has been retired to a life of leisure on cape cod.
