Rated a 5 of 10

Board: JP real world wave 83L

I was trying to decide between slalom at Bird or wave sailing. Even on my slow gear I love the close sailing and turns of the slalom, and other people's company, but more so I missed the waves and wanted to try the aerial off the lip thing, so I went to the gulf. Wrong decision! The wind died off late morning and never came back. Did one run on the 65L board and had to walk one lifeguard stand back. Did another run on the big board and wound up two lifeguard stands downwind, but I landed there, bagged out the sail, and still never planed but I managed to do a huge 1/2 hour long "V" shaped tack and wind up right back at my car. Score!!

Lots of civilian traffic in the water and one swimmer grabbed my mast. arrrgh.
