Tried >10 backies. First time for that great of quantity. The port tack attempts are the ones where I end up sucking lake. I think it might be possible that one could drown doing this (landing on your face.) But, I'm not a doctor, so who knows really. I do watch "House MD" though, ever since Mark says I'm him. L and I don't agree that I'm him, and we should know best I think. Some of the starboard attempts were positively stellar, especially when is was windiest. Mega fast rotation and no fear. Turns out the old 5.2 from the other day just wasn't downhaul'd enough. Handles the gusts just fine. Still afraid of the forward. Never mind all those previous "funnest day ever"s. This was the latest "funnest day ever." Has anyone ever questioned the statement that "10 = funnest day ever"? Has this been vigorously proven? I think it might be a theory. Or is it a postulate and doesn't need to be proven? PSB: Full Sail Pale Ale (thanks Bill) PSG: Veggie Fajitas (thanks Laura) PS: This is great (i think) if you read the whole thing then watch the video: http://groups.google.com/group/rec.windsurfing/browse_thread/thread/756b4a04eb7ef8ab/b7e9890662b422be#b7e9890662b422be
