Flaka [Day 3]: Jenn's first duck gybe!

San Francisco Bay Candlestick Park

A light wind day at the stick but worth checking out.

Jenn started on 5.0 but eventually moved down to 4.5 for the bulk of the session.

I was on 4.8 the whole time with varying levels of outhaul.

I didn't make any moves (except for a few long-sliding vulcans), but came close (off-balance) on a few spock and spock 540's. Tried a few flakas as well, but didn't commit over the nose (and didn't really have rotation).

Highlight of the session was (by FAR) watching Jenn sail out of her first duck gybe! I was always lining myself up to see her starboard transitions since she has been going for them non-stop and to finally see her get one is awesome. Needless to say she had a great time :)

Weather Conditions

Light winds with an off direction to start. Cloud cover made flat-spots a bit harder to spot.
