Another beautiful day. If you aren't happy, something is wrong with you. The maiden voyage of my C145 was great, and no damage, wahoo. It is a nice big short board for the 225# plus crowd. It is short, and responsive for a big board. I sets a real nice rail on the gybes. Biggest lesson today was the self realization how crappy my stance is. First time out, I popped it on a plane and the board spun out twice and easy as I loaded the fin up. Then I realized it was time to loose the taking a dump old school stance. I shortend my lines, and kept saying "number seven" to myself. Solved the spin out and I was planing through the lulls better. I did get wet today, and the O'Neill Evo suit still rocks. If it is durable, will be hard to ever try anything else. PSB: Gatorade.
