Yesterday's pic
« on: May 19, 2020, 12:30:48 PM »
Inside Kahului harbor yesterday with wing.  Alan Cadiz pulled up on my six (on yellow sail) and gave me a few pointers, one being to loosen up my grip which I did.  It all flowed better and I made it all the way in up lifted.  Conditions were steady (rare) and I used a 5 and a 920 Axis wing.  Winging at the very least gives you 'lift time' which if you don't have access to a boat or jetski tow, is a very good thing.  But I get pretty tired after several runs.  This pic is a splice of two pics.  Right toward the end I experimented with pulling hard upwind which was cool.
