Airush sure looks like an Swing knockoff with windows. Insta is lit up with new wings coming.

Iím curious about why the odd sizing. The 4.6 to 3.6m one meter gap being the largest.

I'm curious to know if you have experienced getting less sick since you eliminated dairy.

Absolutely.

I used to blame my propensity for getting sick, and my colds lasting twice as long as my wifeís, on my general allergies

I feel dumb for not having done it sooner.

Total elimination of dairy changed my life. No more morning congestion. Less hacking after a meal.

Knowing a guy a who had T-nuts (with their large surface area compared to a silly dowel pin) break out of the tracks in his production windsurf foilboard.....hell no to that contraption.

FLkiter came up from Miami to ride with us today.

His tacks are so sick and look super easy. His way, is going to be my way, from here on out. I made one attempt after watching him and got hit in the head by the board. Thank goodness I wear a helmet. Jacky said my attempt looked good, until it didnít.

The hand exchange is primary focus. Getting it done early. Board just follows automatic. He had a few subtle tips, that are hard to explain in writing.

His 360ís look super easy too. I wish I had got those on video. He copied the Gong way, and it looks so simple once you see it done in person, and get the secret tips from him  ;D

Whoooaaaaa!

The young guys have been watching Derek Hama@!



This makes me curious about the Starboard foil. Foils do affect a riders style and flow. His looks really good. The best Iíve seen from Zane. Strapless airs are a bonus.

In north winds, he rides the south side of the south jetty. In a south wind, itís the north side of the north jetty.

I have left foils assembled one year and took them apart to sell without any issues. Mine are coated heavily with Tef-Gel.

You learn how to deal with that sticky goo. I only break down my foil daily at the mast to fuse connection. The rest stays assembled forever. Two screws with TefGel are all I have deal with. I keep my fingers clean and sticky free.

There is a really good winger out at Ft Pierce all the time. We have ridden with him. He rides behind the Jetty. That is a nice place to ride. Youíre practically neighbors.

13
Have to get proficient enough so I can wing it at Kelly Park with you experts... ;D

That way of thinking hurts so many.

I know of another local guy who does the same. He rides in secret and has made very little progress after months of trying.

You learn more, and faster, just being around others who do it well.

Just popped over to read the Gong forum. Patrice (Gong designer) is semi ranting about people determined to ride low volume, shooting themselves in the foot. My translation.

Patrice is saying your weight plus 10 liters.

Thatís 90 liters for me. Hey, Iím already riding 90 liters.  ;D We think alike.  ;D

Why not ride Wabasso Causeway? It would be deep.
