Downwinging
« on: December 27, 2019, 08:34:02 PM »
Had a great downwinging session today from the Kihei Canoe Hale to Mana Kai. Lots of crashes, but it's starting to work. Bill Boyum and Peggy King came in not far behind. Mt second downwinder with a wing, though the first didn't count for much besides taking a beating and not crying.

I used my 5M Fone but didn't have my fake boom--it's in Jeremy Rigg's truck, and I missed it a lot. I would have had much better transitions if I'd had it. And yes, Julie Shreyer, I missed having a Duotone window. Now I get why you insist they are so important.

Hi PonoBill

My wife and I were sitting on a bench at Kam 1 watching the 3 of you go by. All of you were a long way out.  We could not tell for sure if you were on foils or not.  I am guessing you were.
Just how exhausted were you after that?
