Took a gamble

Lake Erie Rock Point

Chasing the dream, thought it'd be a glorious day of 5.0; turned out to be a gusty day where I wished I had a 6.0 or 6.5. Took out 5.5 for 1.5 hours of gust-busting; some runs in the straps; tough to stay up wind with the lulls; so worked on short-board tacks (out of necessity); waves rolling nicely along bird sh$# island - making for some sweet jibes - love that surf/jibe feeling; still on the board in the sun, could be worse; hoping for more tomorrow.
