I left my free admission at schlitterbahn after just 45 minutes there, because i could see the gulf going off, and the real waves are much more fun. There have been almost no sailable southerly wave days this year. Fun session but at the end my mast got hopelessly stuck in my sail. I tried everything and finally ended up cutting through the top strap to let it down from there. So my 5.2 is out of commission for now. I tried for so long to free it. I figured if that was the only way out, the strap was the cheapest/easiest damage to deal with. Otherwise it was either cutting the sail stitching itself at the foot, or trying to lever harder against the mast with a screwdriver and possibly breaking the mast. I'm still sad it happened.
