Day 40 - Scored over 2 hrs at the Spit in steady SW 18-22 under blue bird sky. Well powered on 12m + surfboard. Fun hitting wavelets toeside. Usual suspects including 8mdude and Cash (the flying wizard).

Way better wind and more consistent wind than yesterday! Tried out a retro simmer sails 3.4 that was perfect for most of the session. Waves by the pilings were almost nice enough to ride along fully depowered!

Looks like Squamish could be good? Is anyone heading there this afternoon?

I should have gone, maybe a bit gusty but I had the day off.
