Mission 25kt Alpha, still not accomplished, but beginning to understand what I need to do, tighter gybes!!, got 3 above 24.5 which is close to my best. Probably a bit underpowered, as I was going to use the 5.9m, broke downhaul on sail so had to use 5.5m instead.

Started on Futura 101 with 7.0 RS Slalom III busted out a few Alphas in the corner as well as sussed the bar out a for a few runs
Changed board to the Carbon Art Sp 50 and went speed running after that, could not get more than 37 out of her today, water was pretty choppy.
Can't seem to break into the 24s for the Alpha had to abort a few today thanks to kite pollution
Time for a Rumbo I think

Got down the run today with a frown and a fuzzy head from being on the computer all day, everyone seemed to be rigging small so I followed suit, went out with nothging in mind apart from having a bit of a blast.
The wind was a wee bit gusty today and the course a wee bit bouncy, I'd also set the board up to be as loose as posible which made for some great runs unfortunately I was having a lot of problems with my front foot coming out, so after a couple of runs i got jacked of it and went back to base to move around the plastic base pieces in the JP straps which can tighten up the width of the footstrap.
What I found was the footstrap had been set up for Booties, fixing up that and swapping around the insert gave the desired results, a nicely locked in front foot which meant I could give it some rizz and ride right of the back of the board, every run had the board airbourne and flying of the fin.
Ended the session still with a fuzzy head but at least I'd turned that frown upside down whole lotta fun
