There was supposed to be essentially no wind with 6 mph coming from E or SE...Brian didn't believe me when I said there were white caps...so he sent me out to be a wind dummy! Awesome 2+ hours fully powered on 5.5 and 102L. I would have loved to have my 85L, but dudn't wantt to waste time switching. The wind came around to the ENE...Great fetch on a NE always brings nice swells....sunny...the water is bathtub warm....who could ask for more.... I am beat! Lucky for Brian he followed me out...otherwise he'd have missed it all fussing around with his new video camera!
