Funny how Alton always gets banned when there is no wind in the forecast.

So I was on my 94L two days ago in the gorge and was wondering why it was so hard !
As I was going through the chop it was not smooth at all and kind of violent, I realized I d rather foil even in strong winds.
maybe it is time for another foil ?

Yeah converting from PB using the fiberglass supply carbon box. Hopefully today will be sanding, filling then glassing the bottom.

As an aside: I'm starting to think like you. Basically foil until I can be on a 5.7/85L (25-30kts) and leave my 106L FSW at home most of the time.

Same here! I went from windfoiling on Saturday at the Event Site to regular sailing the Hatch on Sunday and man it was rough on the joints in comparison, I would love to try it in the higher winds.
