70 I didn't expect today, but was glad to take the MSF fora spin in the bay. Okay I'm going to continue going on and on about my board. I have this strong feeling it's drastically unbalanced. The footstrap area is extremely heavy, and from the mast track forward it's feather light. I'd love to pick up a new one and see if they're all that unbalanced. I think the balance, far more than the shape, is why it feels so weird to me. But today was a weird day overall...among the weirdest days in my windsurfing history. Weird on the beach for many reasons and weird weather-wise as well. Wind went from 16 mph non planing at the start of the sesh to 25 mph barely hanging on at the end. This storm came through but seemed to be hugging Santa Fe, so I was sailing around watching a downpour from a comfortable distance of a block away, while I was in sunlight and white cumulus clouds.
