Today was a good bay session. I did wear out relatively early, i'm sure due to the lack of recent wind. I tried a bunch of starboard tack jjs on the outside and had one I was really happy with. On the inside I started working on the vulcan jump, and brian helpedme a lot with tips. i'm thinking I just need to put some time in on this one. I also tried a shove-it on the inside once it picked up and realized that was a bad idea.....you do hit the bottom pretty hard.  I quit when one arm got really tired. I'm not sure if it was from the sheeting during the vulcan jumps or what. I wonder....if I'd used a size smaller sail and the bigger board, would that have been a better bet? more gear definitely creates more decisions. But a fun session, great temperatures, no jellies yet. I even used the new ramp and shower pad. good times....
