I was there last weekend with the LWSC windsurfing group on the Medieros side. Not a single weed in site. I was very surprised for this time of year. I was also surprised more people don't sail the ...

I dont sheet enough with back hand and I dont incline the mast into winward. Sometimes instead of inclining the rig I incline the body inside the turn, but this opens the sail.

Do you find a 7.5 day with a big board easier than a 4.7 day? I was right in the middle trying with 5.5 -6.0.

That is an open ended question. On a 7.5 day the water will be normally flatter but t ...
