    Looked iffy for my marginal skills, but the weekend forecast showed no promise. Bobson said Tweezer was out there in 10-15kt so I took the shot. And what a shot it was. Pretty consistent 15kt with my Cab6 meant almost immediate foiling once I sheeted in. Overpowered most of the time. Tweezer provided some supervision and showed off some jedi moves for the first 30 min. Once GoPro battery ran out, I switched to Cab 5. Bobson and Rupert were just putting in too. Slightly harder to get up on the 5m particularly near the end as the winds lightened. I had my wing choices backwards. Bob did his usual whooping high speed passes while I toddled along at walking pace. I finished off the 2nd GoPro battery and called it a day. A freakin' fantastic day in the spring sun!
