Garbage wind at the stick

San Francisco Bay Candlestick Park

Friday was a crapshoot.

Got there and it looked SUPER windy, to a point where I wish I had 4.4, but decided to rig 4.8 (instead of 4.2). Guys were flying on the water.

By the time I was done rigging, there were big holes appearing everywhere.

Pedro, who went 4.4 was planing the same time I was, and schlogging at the same time also. Impossible to rig a sail that worked all the time, impossible to be planing 100% of the time.

Tried to work on some freestyle but was really hard since I was over powered or had no wind at all.

Weather Conditions

Big holes everywhere (middle, far side, close to shore) where it was hard to even keep balance. Surprisingly big chop at times despite having no wind (gust happened upwind?)
