We started the day with a bike ride to Bob Hall Pier. We wanted to ride on the beach, but the tide was too high. So we rode back and got the surfboard for Brian and the boogie board for me. We started to get in the water, but there was just sooo much seaweed. We turned around without going past our ankles. So, we packed up our gear and headed to bird island with our friend John who took his second lesson at Worldwinds with great success. We messed around with occassionally enough wind to plane. I felt my practice on the big board really helped my fast tacks, which I completed quite frequently on the 94liter.
