Hey Michael, sorry I didn’t make it out this morning to try the sail. Would have loved to join you and Dave but didn’t expect wind today and made other plans. I would have rather been sailing!!
Glad you scored a fun session after such a lean summer.

Nice score Michael. I could have (and should have) gone, but questionable overall forecast and when I looked earlier there was a wind drop which made me stay away. By the time it looked good, I think it as too late. The windguru update after the fact got me too!

The new-to-me board is slightly used 2015 Fanatic FreeWave 116 TE. Comparison of old (2012) versus new (2015) shots here.

I'm thinking of picking up a 110-115 freewave. My current ancient 109L gets me lots of marginal sessions. The Fanatics seem highly rated in that size.

Hey Mike, sensor and forecasts were light so it was really hard to tell. I almost didn't go because the sensor was so light but I could see there was wind at my place so went down to investigate anyways. When are you off to Maui?
