first time out on new board
when i left the house it was blowing a steady 12-13 knots, but when i got to the lake about an hour later it was twice that. thats pretty uncommon for pittsburgh, and i'm not exactly equipped or experienced for that kind of wind. i rigged my smallest sail, a 6,5 and went out a few times during the lulls. i was able to beach start and uphaul on a futura 144, but its a steep learning curve going to that board from a monster fanatic ultra cat. the futura is much more responsive and i was squirrelly pretty much constantly. anybody have any tips when going from a long board to a short board?
