This is a rare day on Lake Travis. A strong north wind without blue toes and fingers (granted I have an aversion to booties and gloves). This was a "10" day for the first three runs - planing jibes, nice chop hops. Then I flubbed a duck jibe and upon inspection of my board (69L RRD), I found a big crack on the side, too big for putty. I then borrowed Brian's small board, the Maui Wave, which requires perfection in jibes and is very light - out of the water a bit more than I would prefer. It forces you to be a better sailor.
