First day at Baja. Lightish winds, so did the lightwind freestyle thing with the 5.5, just to get on the water. Tried clew-first heli for the first time (i think it was the first time) but didn't make it. Tried a low-wind forward loop, but the board was too big to sink the tail. Did fairly well at other moves, then switched to the "plane at all costs" mentality, and tried the Retro 7.5, just to remind myself that going straight and fast on big gear is still not a whole lot of fun. Absolutely beautiful view looking back at shore however. PSB: Sol
