Laura's WindLog for Saturday August 02, 2008

62nd session in 2008
Sailed at Bird Island, TX
Wind from the SSE (mph)

Sail: Ezzy Wave 5.0

I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of planable wind. Initially the board felt ginormous, but I enjoyed the stability it provided for making and trying moves. I went through my repetoire of tricks, trying everything, mixing it up a bit, falling a lot. And lo and behold, I Made Two Monkey Ducks!!  One was witnessed by Mike and Brian. The other was super slow motion, but I'm counting it. Maybe now I can stop obsessing over this move, but they are just so fun to try!  I left the water with a big smile!
