A good day of LWF with friends at Freestyle point. Laura has a lightwind machine and only needs a breath of wind to plane now. Her new sail looks great. Brian can pop the board 180 degrees after barely getting on a plane for maybe 20 feet. Sick.

Me, well, I worked on helitacks, sailing on the leeward side, and switch stance sailing. Non-planing old school. The water felt so refreshing with my new wetsuit. It was a beautiful day.

I accidently locked myself out of our old Honda Odyssey (I brought the Fit key in my wetsuit pocket). The Fit  got a new windshield today while I sailed. Jill had to come to WP and save me. I made it up to her. I made Zen Harijuku martinis with dinner, and also made espresso drinks after.

The most impressive thing I saw was 7 year old Marcus T. ripping BAF today. I was very impressed. I felt like a loser dad. Hopefully that will fuel me to get E. up and going.
