16th session in 2011
Sailed at Girl Island, TX
Wind from the SE (mph)
Board: '09 RRD Twin Tip 90
Sail: '09 NP Firefly 4.9
Another great day, but I didn't to be finding my groove so much as was the yesterday before. I probably should have gone with the small JP 90 maybe perhaps so and this and that.
Made more SBVs than PVs, percentage wise anyway. Something like 3 for 4 on SBV's. Too much wind on the outside for consistent PVs. When there's too much wind I always for some reason (physics?) end up flipping the board around a full 180 degrees in the air without the nose touching the water for a pivot point, which rarely goes well...except if I'm at the Hatchery on a 4.1 and the 90 JP and Bill is filming spocks from the rocks! Bill totally rocks!
Made 1 no air SK. The rig throws on these were a bit off today (está fao). But, I did develop an awareness of the board (correctly) carving upwind during the transition, which was previously missing.
