Good, unexpected day. Got to sail with my roommate for the first time. Bigger waves than normal. Started out messy but cleaned up a bit toward the end. I felt very rusty and had too much power to really try a lot. I did try one really high SI that could have ended really badly...but ended mast first :/. Tried on BL that did not rotate quite enough.Port A would have rocked, but I had a time issue.

I do have to mention the past week's surfing during the approach of Ike. The 11th was incredible at Port A--best session I've ever had. The 12th was sloppy and disorganized (also at Port A). Still got some good practice though. Jenn was jumping off the pier and I was just paddling out (getting sucked out really). By Saturday I was too tired of the island to even go out there again to chase that late day windsurfing sesh. I bet it was fun, though!
