FOMO attack
« on: February 01, 2020, 09:42:18 AM »
Jeremy posted a video on Facebook of an epic southside downwinder. I had an immediate attack of acute FOMO (or maybe it's AAMO when it's in the past--Anguish About Missing Out) and I posted this bit of crying towel wringing: Damn. I stayed on the north shore, foil surfed in the morning, then winged with my 6-meter F-one wing. I had barely enough wind to stay up, but it didn't matter much when I got into the waves. I want to do another wing foil downwind so bad I can taste it, but I'm still not ready (at least mentally) for Maliko. If I had known there were good conditions on the south side I would have been there in a heartbeat. I picked up a 101 foil wing from Mark Raaphorst yesterday, so I'm set to go on the equipment side. Now all I need is some wind. It doesn't look like that's gonna happen today. ***Hey, wait a minute, I watched the video again. Devin on a downwind board?? Not likely, she's as addicted to the foil as I am. Ah, three years ago, I didn't notice that. My FOMO attack has calmed down, I guess I did the right thing after all.

yeah, but there wasn't enough wind for my five meter until I came in, and then it picked right up. I should have pumped up the six. Or just packed up and gone to Ka'a.
