Light air session

Another day with almost no wind but that's no excuse not to get wet. I took my gear in the Ria de Aveiro, my 6.9m² sail and my 100 liter freestyle-wave board and a 30cm wave fin.

Not only was the wind very light as it also had some big holes. It was never more than 10 knots with some gusts of 14 knots. So not exactly perfect conditions from the gear I was using.

Yet, some how, I still managed to get the board planning quite often. Which really surprised me. I was not expecting it at all.Not with such light air.

Even though it seams that it's possible to plan with my gear with such light wind I am happy that the forecast for next Tuesday is better. I really feel that I have much to train but I need some stronger wind for that.
