33 Okay, I know I'm spoiled and I probably deserve a smack or two in the helmet for saying this, but if I could describe today's session in one word it would be boooooooring. Guess I'm just not a wave purist, because today was pretty much as pure wave as NoPac gets. So I got in this weird zone where it was so big and windy and sideshore that I was not trying my usual diversions because I would have surely been in for a long swim. So I BAFfed it. I sailed so conservatively I didn't fall til 1/2 hour in and only twice in the whole sesh. I did enjoy the man vs. nature thrill of conquering some big waves! But I missed the freestyle aspect, my true first love. At the very least I DID make progress on jibing due to all that practice. Planed/surfed through every one but the two I blew. Good thing I'm finally catching on in the jibe dept since I'm planning to enter the slalom this weekend weather permitting.
