A mixed day. The good: the swells were setting up better than I've ever seen them at this launch. I got sweet enough rides on my first two runs that I stayed out well past schlogging just looking for one more good one (which I never got). The bad: not windy enough to catch air or even really plane most of the time. It really wasn't even worth the drive. Plus I'd repaired my boom extensively with electric tape, which was making my hands slip, causing me to fall in even more than I normally would on a light day. But overall no complaints because I enjoyed the beautiful weather, just chilly enough to bring out some fall clothes but still warm enough to shower on the beach.
