I brought out the 4'10" and the HS1550/232 - and adjusted the foil back in the tracks about a centimeter, since during the last session it seemed like I was breeching.
I caught a few but the rides were short - the wind was tough to deal with at first. The second half of the session I got used to dealing with the wind and I was getting much longer rides and taking off on bigger waves. This is so much fun. I breeched or lost lift on one ride where Marlon was paddling back out - he said it looked like the ocean opened up and swallowed me (maybe it was on one of the runs I was aborting…)
I think I'll move the mast back up a half a centimeter - I didn't feel like I was really gliding and had to pump a bunch more than usual. Because of all the chop, I still ended up breeching a couple of times anyways.
There was a pretty big monk seal on the beach, and the sunset was a good one - great session on a day that only comes around once every four years!
