Default What do you do?

Hey, it's the first day of 2008, and the wind is really cranking hard, with averages in the high 20s and low 30's mph ranges. However, the direction is almost straight offshore, with humidity values in the single digits. Nobody else is there, so it's a dilemma of sorts.

So, what do you do? It's morning, and it's not really my comfort zone, being an afternoon guy. Even as a surfer back in the 60s and 70s, afternoon has always been my game for mixing it up and realizing my basic nature. Morning has always been hard for me.

Despite my internal reservations, i just rig up and do it. Even if nobody is there, you can taste the sweetness. It's almost better in a way, since you're alone and finding a special time that is both unique and challenging. Being too conservative has no results worth remembering.

That's what I love about windsurfing. It's a focal point for decisions and experience. If stress is a part of the scene, it only improves the possible opportunities for fun.

A truly great indroduction to 2008.
