56 I actually had more fun today than yesterday although it was borderline light....mostly entirely powered up, much smoother waves, consciously practiced back side rides for the first time, lots of ramps, etc. Much more kiters than windsurfers. The wind had a lull that deterred some windsurfers, but luckily it picked back up and was great for me. I tried ear plugs for the first time and didn't like it...it felt like a video game, where the background noise is muted but you hear every breath you take and even your own footwork. I sail better when I hear the wave. So I prefer the helmet after all.
