Pretty demanding day. Forecast was for a lot of wind, so rigged small with the 4.5 and got the big board out for early season safety. A good combo because the wind was from the north and the holes were there, especially on the inside. Very gusty but some good swell. It picked up another notch and I went in to get the 86 liter board and tighten up the sail. Completely lit but never scary overpowered. Some pretty huge swell that just kept getting more organized but I was done after three mini sessions. Just out of shape.
