The wind came a little earlier than I expected, so I rushed to get there. It looked a nice 15mph  when I arrived. I would have considered going 5.5m2 if I thought the wind was going to stay or build, but after yesterday, I was going big. As soon as I hit the water, the wind started to build and get gusty. I was very overpowered at times. My elbow has been sore for a few weeks (presumed tennis elbow) and usually adrenaline takes over. It was worse from yesterday, but something new and bad happened coming out of a jibe. I felt an intense sharp bone pain, and I made myself go in. I am home, icing it and hoping I don't have to get seen and imaged. I got the best of the wind today, hopefully it did not get the best of me. Fingers crossed for now.
