The wind looked good on arrival, and I was deciding between 5.9 and 6.3. I went with the 6.3, and ended up lucky to plane just a handful of times. I am not sure why the lake was not working well today. My leg adductor tear is still very messed up, and it was too soon to return to windsurfing. Beach starts and fast tacks were pretty painful. I also dreaded waterstarts, but I was able to get the lazy-one-leg-no-kick ones down when the wind was gusting. I still am glad I got outside.
