Sunrise session. The focus was on the Wilma Waves rather than the wind. Shlog out, surf back. Repeat as necessary. This was actually a whole lot of fun, focusing more on the surfing aspect than the wind aspect. The shlog out surf in deal was just like riding a ski lift up the mountain then riding down. It's just like how i saw the windsurfers at Diamond Head doing it. One second shlogging, the next second looping, shlogging, surfing, shlogging, etc. Yet another dimension added to the sport. Tried regular surfing in between sessions, but it's a whole lot more work and less payoff. Mike shared a wave with a dolphin, the first of many dolphin encounters this weekend. PSG: That place on the road out to the beach, across from Crazy Cajun.
