29 I did two sessions, both challenging. It blew about 20 mph on my first sesh and 30 on my second. So the first time I was barely planing trying to avoid these big waves in really light onshore wind. Second sesh was way overpowered, plus it shifted to more south so it was actually hard to get in to shore. Outside jibes felt awesome--huge, smooth, wide slopes to turn on, like skiing. Inside it was just trying to jibe and not get closed out on. The one really fun thing I did was this long clew first wave ride which was unplanned but I kept being afraid to move a muscle to flip the sail because I was about to totally get rolled.
