Chrissy was useless for non-foilers, between flood and wind inconsistence.
I struggled on my 90L/6.0 (admittedly under-buoyanced), got planing maybe three times, but I couldn't stay close to the wind and ended up on the last beach before the yachting club.
Better than the gym, but barely... Rolling Eyes

San Luis 4/27

Overpowered on a 5.2, then overpowered on a 4.6- never felt like rigging the 4.3. There were something like 7 of us out on the San Luis Creek side and a couple out on the Medeiros side.

Graham Feddersen does a forward loop at Sherman Island Access just before the wind dropped after a very good Dawn Patrol morning session. I enjoyed my 75L board and 4.7 sail (175 lbs), even though it was not an ebb tide. Best wishes for a speedy recovery to Carla, who injured her leg.

PostPosted: Sat May 04, 2019 4:42 pm    Post subject: Foiling Berkeley Friday May 3 Reply with quote

fun foiling day yesterday at berkeley. tide seemed higher than what is reported, so no issues with water level. i went w/ my S2 Jester 4.0 (freestyle sail) and Slingshot Wizard 125/Infinity 76 combo. Was able to pump up onto the wing almost right off the dock. Wind was strong but also had some huge holes at first. It had been awhile since I have foiled in non-flat water (Candlestick mostly lately), so it was a bit of an adjustment and also a lot of fun. Probably four other recreational foilers out on 4.7s to 6.0s including the famous dllee (AKA LeeD, zirtaeb). despite his saying he's not getting it, he looked like he was doing pretty well. so far, I would say candlestick is a much easier place to learn to foil b/c of the flat water.

windsurfers were really on and off with the gusty wind. Later in the day around 5pm, I think the wind strengthened and became steadier and a friend of mine was out windsurfing on 5.0/85 and looked like he was having a good time.

Was great to foil in the same water as God Kevin yesterday. Not in my wildest dreams will I match his skills.
13 days in, still a floudering beginner.

Dawn Patrol rewarded with over 30 winds and very nice rolling white caps with an ebb tide. I sailed a 75L board with 4.2 sail (175 lbs.) and was worn out by mid-morning.
