I love this sail. The water felt chilly at first fall, but soon afterward it started feeling really refreshing. Still chilly, but I enjoyed floating around in it a little longer than necessary every time I fell in! I got to look at Enes' boom and loved it, so I'm getting it. My favorite boom ever was my first HPL, and this is basically just the updated version of the same, and it came along at just the right time, because mine is showing signs of wear...plus it will be nice to have the old one as a backup. Conditions were typical Bird--inconsistant, gusty, and lots of holes, often making it hard to jump and clear the weeds that were building up on my fin. But it's such a beautiful setting and a nice group of people, which makes  the occasional trip out there still fun.
