Pedro's Bday: No wind at the stick

San Francisco Bay Candlestick Park

Tried to get a session in after work on the hope that Candlestick would deliver on a SW forecast, didn't happen. Everybody was aiming for Berkeley and TI and the parking lot was empty when I showed up.

One sailor was on the water, and I thought it was ??? (name escapes me, old guy who rides ezzy) on his 5.5. There were solid whitecaps so I rigged my trust 4.8... work on spocks or sail trickery.

Hit the water and got in 2 runs of planing as the massive holes appeared. A couple more reaches looking for gusts and going way down-wind then I was pumping the sail to get back to the beach.

Could have maybe switched to 5.7 but decided I didn't need to chase wind that badly, especially not by myself, and opted to pick up Jenn and make her dinner instead.

Was de-rigging / getting out of my wetsuit when Jacob appeared.
