SPI Trip 3 days in Hot Thermals!

Great trip with Brent, JB and Mark to Texas. 80 water and 80 air with afternoon winds kicking in every day. 

Day 1 Thursday: The Ditch and great Foil rental. 10m Boxer was a little overpowered but worked with big 76 Slingshot Foil. Winds 12-18 SE. Dinner Laguna Bobs!

Day 2 Friday: Back to the Ditch, 15-20+ ESE winds and its capping. Borrowed JBs 12m Pivot as most on 14’s. Winds too much for foiling. Sunny and great riding along far side of ditch. Fun day as warm up for tomorrow. Dinner at BlackBeards with Flynn’s and Ellis’. 

Day 3 Saturday: South Flats sunny and 20 SSE at 10:30 on the water! Huge classic thermal fun. Hot solid strong winds ALL day. 11 Pivot and Mako perfect combo for 2 downwinder runs to the North Flats. Glass water behind the islands and in canals was worth the wait. Had most of it to myself for almost 70 miles. 5+ Hours riding. Perfect day and lots of smiles including those for getting the van out of the quickly raising tide! Dinner back at Laguna Bobs!
