You don't know what frustrating conditions and fickle wind is until you've lived in Austin. Conditions were 5 to 25 mph. Finally decided to give up on planing and went for the 5.8 with the big board after trying unsuccessfully to use the two smaller boards. Had much more fun with this setup, and was able to increase my freestyle density. Made 1 or 2 push tacks. Found myself instinctively adding a little extra something to the push tack attempts which involved the leech foot hitting my shins during an extra sail flip (or something like that, I'm not quite sure exactly what I was doing.) Fell in every time though. Getting better at sb360's...made 3 in a row. Shared a beer with Bill from Austin. Freestyle Density: Low, then high. PSB: Full Sail Pale, Corona
