Buck McRockbuff's WindLog for Sunday November 15, 2009

121st session in 2009
Sailed at Girl Island, TX
Wind from the SSE (mph)
        Lulls: 10
        Average: 18
        Gusts: 25
Rated a 8 of 10

Board: '07 JP Freestyle 100, '10 JP Freestyle 107
Sail: '08 NP Expression 5.7
Suit: Shorts

Worked on spocks, full speed full powered in the strap sail ducks (as a prequel to CF Spocks and Toaders), SKonas, and whatnot. Couldn't even once successfully get to the post sail throw bit on the SKonas today, probably from watching too many videos of it which caused me to obsess on the carve. So much so that I kept carving upwind prior to throwing the sail. Master Swami Andy B gave me some advice on spockage: throw the rig across and down rather than just across.

Le chat noir gave us this day by driving back to Austin Sat night. Merci le chat noir!

At the end of the day, Andy wanted me try his '010 Freestyle 107 to see how I dug the foot dents, so I did, but there wasn't enough wind left to plane on it.

Oh yeah, yesterday I tried the no-hands heli after seeing Noel do it, and I got it. I've been meaning to try that for probably 4 or 5 years now.

Sufficiently worn out to not even think about hitting tomorrow's cold front.
