Thank Gahhhd, Budahhh, Alahhh, or whoever... just ahhh. I finally got to windsurf. A month and a half wait is over. It has been way too long. The water seemed unbelievably flat after the Gorge. I was skimming effortlessly much of the day, so I attempted my first Vulcan. I suspect it works a lot better if the board leaves the water. I will shelve that move for now. I had one gybe that I exited much faster than I went into it. Too bad I wasn't ready for that. I saved it, but eventually killed the speed. I ripped up my hands pretty good. It was a great day to be out sailing. I hope the guys get a good surf day in PortA tomorrow with the front. Just for the record. I have no real objection to people windsurfing in a speedo. I wouldn't, but that is me. Just don't ask to borrow my seat harness....that is too much for me.
