Windy and chilly in the morning shutting off in the afternoon. I went with a bigger board, but was still on the threshold of planing. It was also hard to stay upwind with the board under finned. The Mistral Explosion is a nice board, but the nose developed expansion cracks. I was a little worried the rental center would blame me for it, but when I showed it to them, they said Mistral is recalling all Explosions for this. Deep sea fishing planned for tomorrow.
