Super windy day at the stick.

Super nuknig day at the Stick with Marty and Juan on the early side. Juan first went out on 4.0 which was a big mistake as later he was riding on Heather's 3.3 and still overpowered.

I spent the session on 3.7 and just astounded at the few who braved it for so long riding 4.2. Bill, who generally sails bigger went out on 5.0 and after crashing his first gybe and struggling to waterstart, butt dragged himself right back to the launch.

Fun jumping on the few that could actually send you up (most of the time the jumps just floated and pulled forward), no tricks.. just blasting around crazy fast and looking for lulls to gybe.

Definitely overpowered the whole time!
