William foiled 5.4, Barrett windsurfed 7.0, both did great.
I don’t know what you’d call what I did.

One step closer to foiling nirvana? Biggrin

Gotta admit, when I turned the corner on Gaines Ferry, peaked between the houses and saw the lake absolutely filled with white caps, I freaked a little bit. The earlier forecast was 12-18 so I'd dumped all the small stuff from the van before heading out and thereby violating the first maxim of windsurfing: Bring everything.

I did go for the 5.4 and it handled better than I expected. Took me a while to get used to smaller gear but once I settled down and didn't freak out in every gust, it was a lot of fun. I love going over to Aqualand and surf foiling (or pretending to, at least) the swell. Best part is how easy it was to sail back upwind.

It was a really fun day.
