Indeed she's making terrific progress and receiving good instructions. Ok, I'll have them remove the fixed center fin off the 115 ltr board and let her practice going upwind. Forecasts for the weekend are: SAT/SUN: 22 knots & wind gusts of 25 knots. So she'll probably go back to the 2.5 NP xPerience sail.
And they do have a SB Start M & L w/ footstraps, so I'll give that a try and see how it goes. Last time I remenber her mentioning that whenever she moves back to look for the straps the board keeps turning upwind
Thanks so much for these valuable tips!!
