More shove it trial

SF Bay SF Bay Coyote Point

More choppy and small swells today so only one vulcan type jump without worrying about the sail. Finally landed in the water with the board at 180 degree. Not yet consistent. Only concern is I'm not sure why I'm doing it since it's not really thrilling.

On the other hand, got a nice airy shove it, but did not have a good feel for the sail in flight. What was most helpful was going faster than the wind before laying the sail down, the board did pop up and I went horizontal automatically.

Not as cold because we traded wet suit (that's what brothers are for). Palo Alto would have been warmer but there were no white caps when we drove by.

Tired and hungry after the morning playing tennis and 4hrs of sailing. Fortunately it's full of good Vietnamese restaurants around here.
