105 - Launched at the boat ramp just south of TAMU before the OSO bridge.  Just a few whitecaps and a fairly steady breeze, first time in the bay for almost a year.  Did well inside and outside with fairly good power in between.  It was strange at first, the water was sandy colored and it was very dificult to see the small chop/swell going out and there were lots of small stick markers in a line about 50 feet apart that were difficult to see coming back in.  Had two crashes late going out, both getting involuntary air hitting a large swell and for some reason falling off the rear of the board but staying in the straps.  The water was a little cooler than BIB which made it almost refreshing.
