15th session in 2009
Sailed at Incredible Hulk Point, TX
Wind from the SE (mph)
Board: '05 JP Realworld Wave 83L, '07 JP Freestyle 100
Sail: '06 Ezzy Wave 4.2, '08 NP Expression 5.7, Ezzy Wave
Suit: Full w/Exo Top & cap
Water Temperature: 56 F
Air Temperature: 70 F
Off the chart wind (see chart below.)
Rigged three times (see chart below.)
As soon as the back loopable ramps appeared, I raced shore to switch from the 5.0 to the 4.2 since I didn't want to be stupidly overpowered when trying those. Tried 5 or so, with 2 decent attempts. Amazing L stayed on the 4.7 the whole day.
Tried 2 starboard forwards in the flat water, but wussed out and let go both times. I think my body got around though. I think Keith has video of it.
At least 20 V attempts. Zero completions.
Guy says there was a gust to 44 knots.
