After a few goes started to get rides, some short and one maybe 200m just
skimming chop until I got knocked off. Need to increase height but I stall
as climb too steep so take it easy. A few walks upwind until I got longer
rides upwind. Rik said move weight forward and pull wing in more for more
speed, and that helped. Didn't realise I have to shift feet so much to get
going and whilst going, but only small changes.
Getting up more, but rush it too much, wait until enough speed. Started to
pump a bit in lulls and got going. Pleased with progress. John getting
longer runs and well chuffed. Rik getting most gybes in.
Wind a bit offshore but helps keep water flat and gusts are all you need.
Julian blasting on 6.2m windsurfer, but to learn something new have to
forgo good days.
Packed up in an awesome red sunset.
