Sat/Sun Jan 25-26

Saturday looks breezy for the committed -high about 45 10-15ish.
Sunday is more humane. Wind just a bit less but temps towards 50.

The water will be cold. I think I'm in both days. Will be fun for foil, wide board, long board, big kite.

The real inspiration for me from this video is that I should be able to make a foil board using the nose part of the formula board I broke in half (and still sitting in my back patio). Those boards in the video are no larger than that, with the mast base connected right at the tip of the nose!

The reason my Naish Chopper sails are so short is one of their riders broke the tip of his mast in Hawaii and sailing back to the beach found it didn't make that much difference.

Mark Angulo, known for his make it or break it attitude, has found himself many time sailing Ho’okipa with a semi destroyed sail. Especially some times his Force has completely lost some part of the leech but he kept ridin’. It was then that Mark noticed that the rig was still sailable and according to him had some exceptional characteristics… so a concept for a new sail has popped up. Naish Chopper was born!

So i am just like the pros, trail blazing in new product design! That's it, I am off to OF; see if I can repeat the events and make a 2nd ultra short foil board; otherwise it's just an accident (let's hope not)!

Live report from OF - blowing pretty strong and felt steady, some white caps, chilly. Plenty of parking - too 'plenty'? Brought 5.7 and 7.6 with foil gear, kind if wishing had 5.3 (just beginner me though, not a problem for anyone reading this I am sure). Baxter out! (any outdoor man-Tim Allen fans? If not, oh well, ignore).

I didn't make it out today. What I thought would be a shortish 11 am meeting with someone ended up taking 2 1/2 hours. Tomorrow, then.

Re: Sat/Sun Jan 25-26

Live report from OF - feels steady breeze, very few white caps, a little lighter than yesteday this time. Will be a tough call between 5.7 and 7.6; wish that 6.4 skyscape was here already. Again, just me - most of you could make either work probably. Which is why I am sticking with more beginner friendly spots for a while; realized VP is over my head. Happy sailings to all venture out; sunnier and 'warm' relatively.
