Banner day at Cole Park! I was perfectly powered and appreciating how much I love these sails. I got some random things I have not tried in a while, maybe years, on the first try - pirhouette jibe and a monkey duck jibe. They were so smooth but obviously partly luck, because I did not repeat them on the second try. Haha. Got some really smooth wave face ducks, some epic crashes, and Lawrence was trying/making loops, so after a little group talk and self pep talk, I tried one. It resulted in a right hip slap. I'll have to reconstruct how far I got around, but I think not very. But at least Randy recognized it for a loop attempt, and maybe I've broken my 10-year inertia and will try again. Isn't looping before 40 a midlife crisis thing all windsurfers need to experience? We shall see...
