Good session. One other sailor out there (Luke). We were both planing back and forth in a small area. Wind was shifty and really up and down. Got quite a few good runs in though, I can't complain! Landed some gybes, good times and happy to be planing 3 days in a row.

When I can windsurf back to back for a couple days I find my skills improve so much. Gybes are getting closer and closer to a planing exit. My entries are good and under control, foot transition is smooth, but I need to stop grabbing the mast! Tomorrow I'll be trying to really THROW that sail forward and reach for the boom instead. Will review Guy Cribb's iNtuition Gybing tonight :) That's helped me more than anything.

Tomorrow should be better!!!
