Wind started @ 10 mph from the South. I did some LWF. Made a couple of UW360s, but still need to get the board around better. Got planing once and pulled off a sweet duck gybe right by the shoreline. Then the wind shut off completely. I thought I might have to swim the board back to shore, but finally, the wind started to fill from the North. Then it shifted to the WNW and got breezy. I was overpowered a few times, but it was on/off. More ducks, no worthy vulcan attempts to speak of.
