That's a good one. Might steal it from you some time to put on my blog! Flying over the Atlantic tomorrow!!

Have a great flight! Bring wind please...

I had a great time on Sunday at West Meadow beach. The wind was blowing form SSW with gust s up to 25mph. The wind was a bit gusty and sometimes patchy but I was well overpowered and did not care very much at the end. Better than nothing!

Whoever says planing in 16 knots is "early" probably says 11 am is "dawn patrol". :P

In my book, it's not early planing unless it's in 12 knots or less.

Cute sign..winds have subsided down here..May and June were kick ass months in Bonaire..wow...

James, I agree. Hence the "tear it up" bit. My own wind minimum to plane and be able to jibe (ie the board accellerates as I bear off) is 14 knots, sailing a 7.0) Folks on bigger gear can do better, but that's when I switch to nonplaning freestyle.
