It looked a whole bunch windier than it was on the water. Even on the water it looked windy about 20 feet away, but that 20 feet kept moving as I moved. Stayed out quite a while putzing around. Re-learned that I really am not good at backwinding with this kit. Did get to try one vulcan attempt and I let go with my front hand for 1.2 miliseconds, but not long enough to for any change in board direction. Tried to repeat my monkey duck success, but couldn't pull it off - the water was bumpy.
