A very fun bay day!  First session provided good, steady wind with fairly decent upwind ramps for extra excitement.  Used the swell to try to plane through some ducks and thought about adding the spin at the end, but never felt confident enough.  Tried lots of jump jibes.  First vulcan attempt was the best since I fell forward and board rotated a whopping 10 degrees.  It was fun to do fast tacks on the inside since the nose of the board would touch the sand on the bottom and keep me from falling in.  Second session got a bit holey.  Finished things off with a burger and beer at the Surf Club.
