Enjoyed the first hour of marginally winds - trying to dial in the Duke. Easily staying upwind in the lighter air. Not quite enough for some hard driving carving.
Eventually the wind ramped up and I needed almost fully depower mode for the 13. Upwinding was easier yet, I could of made the slick in one tack.
Finally I was able to enjoy some downwind runs slashing some water both toeside and heelside. Jumping with this light weight board was really easy - lofting to some record heights.
Ben the windsurfer was the only other person there - along with some duck hunters hiding in the reed beds.
Overall - the session well worth the drive time.
