board: Angulo Triumph 81         sail: 5.2 Worldsail Surge '12

 Waves were big but the inside was very light and totally non-planing so it was dicey getting out. I also found it impossible to ride the wave to its potential and still make an inside jibe...there was a lot of whitewater and little wind, so it would push me straight toward shore where it was really shallow. What a fun, awesome wave though. Much more power for riding than we have had lately.

A couole of minor frustrations I need to address - I am getting frustrated with this mast/sail combo because it's always getting stuck when I try to derig, and this is after I already cut them apart once and paid for a repair. Not sure of a solution on that other than moving up to a 430 mast, which I really don't want to deal with bc it won't fit in my cargo box. Also my baseball batting gloves were incredible for summer but I found they are colder than no gloves when it's cooler out.

board: Quatro Custom Quad 112         sail: 5.3 Severne S-1

Big cold front. Waves were small, and wind was squirrelly on the inside, but it was super strong and steady on the outside near the jetty. I was happy to get more time on this board. I need new footstraps that don't collapse. Being a klutz trying to get my feet in the straps can be a plane killer, although, I am getting better every session. So good to be back sailing with friends.

board: Angulo Triumph 81         sail: 4.2 Worldsail surge '08

 I am in love with this board more every time I use it. I'm pushing the limits of when to take a big board out, but this on handles so well it allows me to do that and actually rewards me.

post sesh happy hour w/Mike, Mark, Laura, Brian

board: '09 RRD Wavetwin 82         sail: NeilPryde Firefly 4.1

 A gorgeous windy day! I had a blast in the teensy tiny waves, but I only lasted through a short session before my back said enough. Great time with great friends!

board: 112 FANATIC SKATE         sail: 5.3 EZZY ELITE

 100 - High expectations didn't work out as it was all over the place.  Just out and back to SI#1, outside was best but still limited power and inside was consistently too weak.  Slight chance tomorrow but that's it for awhile.

board: 112 FANATIC SKATE         sail: 6.1 EZZY ELITE

 099 -  Rigged at the north end and sailed in the North Basin.  Worked up wind in five tacks and stayed between the big dune and the spoil with the biggest trees.  Able to plane consistently but only with medium power at best.

board: '14 JP 93 FWP, 112 FANATIC SKATE         sail: 5.3 EZZY ELITE, 6.1 EZZY ELITE

 098 - Rigged at the north end and it was out to the Mudflats and back with consistent power.  First 2/3 was 6.1 and Skate with half dozen round trips across the Mudflats to the KRS.  Last 1/3 was best, on 4.7 and JP out and back to the North Cabins.

 Dawn patrol before work. Fun sailing with Gordon and Matt - some others showing up when I left but the wind had died down by then.

board: '14 JP 93 FWP         sail: 4.7 EZZY ELITE

 097 - Out and back to SI#1 with mostly full power except small holes inside.  Started with 5.3 but rigged down fairly soon.  Great warm and windy day for mid November ahead of a sunrise cold front.

Mike Murphy @ BIB

board: 112 FANATIC SKATE         sail: 6.1 EZZY ELITE

 096 - Out between the spoils, very light inside but OK outside.  Sailed across the sandbar between the spoils and and did some runs in the IWC between SI#2 and the Piles.  Still up and down, returned down wind of SI#3 and had a few more consistent runs but it was still weak.
