I find it hard to believe the air temp was in the upper 50's, it felt pretty warm since the sun was shining. I had a great time. I also was not alone today, which was good/more fun. I had to cut it short though, so I could pick up my son from after-school care. The board/sail combo is a very good one for me. It took a while to figure out the conditions. I was not alone in this respect. It was ridiculously on/off gusty in the channel well past the point. It was actually more steady in the shadow behind the point. No big swell today like Tuesday. Lake Buchanan had much steadier wind and the chop was a lot more fun. I think I learned some stuff today that will help me.
