Got in a quick session after work. I was very surprised to find planing conditions with absolutely no one else sailing. Looking at the lake wind graph, I am also surprised that I was planing at least 80% of the time, since the graph is showing the wind at about 12-14 knots.

Tried to bounce my way into some port vulcan attempts to no avail. The board is no where near leaving the water - I doubt even a sliver of fin made an appearance above the water. I must not be doing something right. I started doing jump jibes, which are always fun!  I thought about trying a starboard vulcan bounce, but I couldn't get my mind around it enough to make my legs function.
