Wow - I obviously wasn't expecting that much wind or I would have rigged a size down. Was happy with how the sail handled the gusts though and had fun trying stuff. My "vulcan attempts" have progressed to absolutely no board movement, but that's a good thing, because that means I have moved away from the jump jibe and really am  focusing on getting my weight forward. I've probably tried 40, so only 960 more attempts before I might get close to one. Right now it feels hopeless, but I won't give up.
