Sail: Ezzy Wave 3.3, Ezzy Wave 4.7

Rigged up our smallest sail for my nephew to give it a spin and for me to do light wind practice.  The only problem was the wind was straight onshore and all the docks were board magnets.  Also the water was unusually rough, but I did managed my normal helitacks and SB360s and tried some backwinding, but I tend to go straight downwind and can't see the docks as well from that position.  My nephew did remarkably well and next time should take a bigger sail.  My dad was out a long time enjoying his "new" board and I took his kit for a ride when he was taking a break.  Was able to get the 160 on a plane a few times.
