Zonin'

Lightwind-sessions require a lot of effort, but can be so rewarding at the same time. Take the four hours I practiced yesterday. To start off noone was planing at all, but as I made my way over to the Mangrove - covering that distance takes a while without speed - the gusts started moving in by the edge of the woods'. Somehow I seem to have found the sweet-spot on my equipment lately, so when I felt the wind starting to pull my sail it was just sheet and go. I was dry at that time, and I stayed dry during the next 20 minutes, easily. Had every slidemove possible carried out, including a few doubles and Switch Flakas. Such a great feeling.

Off to repeat that feat.
