Sailed at Candlestick (aka Candleshit) for about an hour yesterday in a tune up session. I was on 5.0 and 104L, which was a little underpowered, but it was still fun to get wet. The winds were gusty and shifty, probably 10-27 or so.
Amazingly, I made my first few jibes. Muscle memory blows my mind. I've always had a theory that a lot of the progress you make is due to sleeping on things; your mind sorts out your technique errors at night. Anyone else find that they make progress "off the water" frequently?
Everything feels pretty good... my right shoulder is a little stiff, but what better way to loosen up than windsurfing?
Also, I had dinner with another famous windsurfing blogger, Dave. He has a blog called Epic Sessions that he recentle seceded from his other blog, Cheeseheadtech. His blog is a lot like mine, other than the fact that he's a good windsurfer who has a good sense of humor, 15 years more experience, a better job, waterfront property, vendors who send him free stuff, and a family who loves him. Other than that, we're basically the same windsurfer.
