It is the weekend to give thanks. I am thankful for my friends and my beautiful family. I am fortunate to live in this wonderful city. I had a four day weekend. I wanted it to be windier, but at least I had today. Early, I had the impression it would be windier ( I guess when my board got blown off my board bag and tumbled on the rocks). So, I rigged a little smaller than I should have. I struggled to plane much of the time, which was tough since there were so many nice ramps. I should have rigged up in size, but I was hoping it would fill in more. Peak wind was @ 2pm, then started to decline. I did have one nice duck gybe, fast tack, jump gybe, and a few powered launches. Mainly it was a relief to get rid of the holiday cabin fever, and I feel much better for it.
