When you get thrown off the horse...get back on and ride him hard. Well that's what I did today. Solid 5.6 weether and time to put the hammer down. Choppy as hell and no sandbar to hide behind so into the channel and let the beast off the leash. Nice to hear Bitching Betty belting out 39, ended up with a 38.916 knot peak.....I'll take it. Never been that fast in the river without a sandbar before so the training and weight loss are paying off. Neck was fine and no reprecussions after the big off a few days ago. Knocked out 2 24 knot alphas and 6 23 knot ones for good measure. Been a hell of a July for windsurfing this year.

Sailed a 5.8 Ezzy Tiger on a 107 JP Freestyle Wave. Switched to a JP 93 Freestyle Wave with a 5.2 Ezzy Tiger and then went to a 4.7 Ezzy Panther with a 79 liter JP. I saw a hot shot guy out sailing and thought I would race him. We raced down wind and I caught up to him. He started to race back up wind and I couldn't keep up with his slalom board and fin. I quit early because here at Floras it will be my 9th day sailing back to back. : )
