Spock dry spell

San Francisco Bay Haskins

Went to Haskins to join Sofi and Brad given their good OSRs. Really windy but I knew brad was out on 4.6 so I rigged up 4.8.

Of course just as I'm about to don a wetsuit, Sofi comes back to re-rig from 4.5 to 3.8.... what??!!

4.2 it is!!

Went out and the water was nice and flat. I was full power 50% of the time, barely planing 20% and schlogging 30%. Gusty day.

Got a bunch of very long sliding vulcans (really log slide!) and can't even come close to them on port anymore. One close to spock, but I'm trying to focus on getting my hands to the boom. Spocks elude me once again.

Afterwards, enjoyed a beer on Sofi which he provided for nailing his first regular Kono (witnessed by Brad) the day before!

Weather Conditions

Flat on port, super bumpy on starboard and gusty as anything
