Maui Day 3: Sprecks

We went to Sprecks today for a short session. Here are some pictures:

Nina sailed first, and loved the board - we might just have to take it back, too. Then, I went out on the same gear, and was nicely powered on a 4.5. I think the wind picked up a bit just as I went out, but still, it's amazing that we both were planing comfortably on the same gear. I'm about 50% heavier than Nina, and usually, that's reflected in the sail size (e.g. 5.0 and 7.0); in addition, Nina also usually sails a smaller board. Despite this being a short session, we both had a lot of fun. I was lazy as usual, but Nina worked a bit on jumps and shove-its:

Judging by how much easier the sailing was today compared to last year, I think we learned a few things in the past year (although the Angulo boards certainly help!). I can't wait so see what we'll learn in our time here!
