a big gear day at los barriles. unfortunately vela doesn't have the biggest gear and also unfortunately I took out smaller than the biggest figuring things would jack up like last time. the 7.2 hellcat and code 122 were ok during the peak wind of the day. I was a bit underpowered. then the clouds scooted in and the thermal weakened. I waited too long to switch to a 7.7 so half of this was just my bad timing. still some good rides and some good jibes and the lines on the 7.7 were actually balanced for once. thank you whoever you were.
