Run two was completely different as wind speed doubled, wave size tripled and glide time significantly increased. We were limited by our own energy, not lack of waves. He dropped us in the lee of Angel Island for a good run towards Richmond. Everyone did fantastic, catching bumps, handling the strong wind and looking out for each other.
I'm again impressed with my new ride, the Cali 14 from Focus SUP Hawaii. For a pointy all conditions race board, it handles damn fine in mid-sized downwind conditions. It catches them easy, has great planing speed and the nose releases predictably when stuffed underwater. No surprises from this board and the secondary stability is impressive. Loving it!
