Board: Brian's JP Realworld Wave 83
Sail: my NeilPryde Expression 5.7
Fin: Yes
Suit: Full

Raced to the point to get a quick session in between work and school. Everything was going smoothly until I was taking my board from the parking to the water and the wind whipped it out of my hands sending it tumbling on the rocks. Fortunately Brian was there with ding stick which filled in about 6 little holes. Yikes!  But then we decided I should let it cure for an hour, which was the total amount of sailing time I had left, so I hopped on Brian's 83 liter with the 5.7 sail, which was quite an odd feeling combination. My lesson learned: don't be in a hurry!
