19 Have you ever been overpowered on a 2.5? Well it was my first time. This was white knuckles, waterstarting in the footstraps and harness, catching air down waves as well as up them, and almost more shore break than port aransas yesterday. It took all the concentration I had to get downwind to where I started in one piece.
