It was actually my best, thanks to the fact that the wind was kind of light again, but with my big board under repair I was forced to use my 75l... and I had a blast.
One more confirmation that there is ALWAYS something positive in everything.
Sure it was harder to get out across the breaking waves, sure I was slower to get back upwind and so I caught less waves, but once on a wave... what a difference!
I also think I'll join the club of those sailors that never use a sail bigger than 4.7 at Hookipa. No matter how light the wind is, any sail bigger than that just doesn't feel right on a wave anymore.
Considering that I'm convinced that the better the sailor you are the less board and sail you need, I'll take it as a sign that I'm improving... it would be about time!!!
Anyway, I had some really glassy ones with up to two-three turns (that's pretty much the most you can get at Hoo) that really put a big smile on my face.
After that, I started my photo shooting sesh kind of late and I could only take one windsurfing photo. A good one, though: downtown Jesse Brown in a nice aerial.
And this is me (thanks Tato again). Lame top turn, but just look at that perfect size (and shape in this case) wave... hey, where's everybody else?!?
I also took some surfing photos, but none really impressed me. Other than this one, of course...
Starting today (Saturday), the waves should start to go down and tomorrow the wind should start to go up. I predict a shift towards jumping.
