Sunday Nov 10th

Erie Sherkston

Another rig your smallest day...no slogging here.....a true westerly at Sherks with shifting WNW. Found this sesh to be trickiest/fluky ever...not only dealing with big gust but also some of biggest wind shifts ever...so bit of a test .

Thing was you would score some great rides on some logo+ high sets which pushed you to just stay out and work with conditions.

If you commited to some down the line frontside rides with a big shift you would wind up so far down.If a lull accompanied this you were done.

Never saw so many guys doing walk of shame....at one point 5 coming up beach like a caravan...but worth just one big air or a bottom turn.

Still being humbled after years of sailing...have to love it
