Bat out of hell!

Lake Ontario MCP

Couldn't join the others at Club Lasalle in St Catharines, but managed to sneak an hr locally. Wind line was out abit and looked light. Rigged big bamboo with a 6.2 and took off. No waves to speak of. Got on a plane real fast and cruised for a while until suddenly I was hit with what seemed 25+ kts of wind on the outside! That was a handful for me with a 6.2 and 12 ft of strapless board under my feet, but got somewhat comfortable and cranked the sail as hard as I could! Holy crap, she went in like a bat out of hell, practically riding my fin!...Wow what a ride!
