Marlon got a break from being grounded - so I brought him out to the beach. The Easterly Trades were up - enough to put a bunch of texture on the water. The tide was rising again - was out from 0.5' to 1.0'. And the swell was between thigh to waist high.
Marlon was out pretty quick and everytime I looked over, he was up and riding. I brought out the 4'10" and the Iwa. I initially set it where I had the Armstrong CF1600. It worked, but it didn't feel like the lift was smooth or automatic. I caught three waves (which were long and fun - maneuvering around the unbroken portions of the waves to just glide along) and went in to change the foil position.
I pulled the foil forward a bit and paddled back out. The adjustment made a ton of difference and the lift was better behaved and gliding was automatic. One more day riding this foil position to make sure this is an optimum point.
I caught four more and it was time to call it a session. Tomorrow there is supposed to be a bump up in the wave height...
