Beautiful day to be outside! A small group of windsurfers and kiters at the point. Wind was a mix of NE and ENE. Never steady, and and at times absent, it was not a good day for sailing. Who cares as long as you were outside today. I was happy with my balance on the board and sail handling today. Sail chi-like practice has really help me take things to a new level. Today, when the puffs were steady, I mainly worked on switch-stance sailing and threw my first Duck Tack attempts. Unfortunately, when I caught the sail, it was too far forward and turned the nose of the board quickly downwind into a weird switch-stance duck gybe.

PWCs were helping the kiters today. Lesson or rescue? Not sure.
