A very quiet, peaceful session. I had the lake to myself, save for one big sailboat. As I rigged, the wind seemed quite nice, but as soon as I headed out, it dropped to non-planing. I decided to explore the lake and just as I got upwind of the island, the wind picked up for a sweet 30 minutes of steady planing. I stayed up there and enjoyed the lake sailing, mostly doing ducks and trying monkeys. I made one monkey!  When I finished the 360 part I thought about my back foot which caused it to lift up, so I put it further back on the board which saved the move. Thanks B!
