I could even take a few seconds to appreciate the feeling now and then. It is very smooth. But mostly I was concentrating very hard on what I was doing. It is hard work. I pretty much did everything possible. I shot up really to max height on the board and, somehow, was able to keep going. I got up, slammed the board down, and kept going, board on the water. I did some out-of-control kangarooing. A couple of times I got going so fast I decided I better just hop off. Once or twice I was able to turn downwind to slow down, settle back on the water and keep going. I had some spectacular crashes (people on the beach were impressed), but nothing hurt, pretty much controlled wipeouts. Forecast is good today, so I might be able to get out again. I've got about 6 hours, so the estimate of 5-10 hours to get going seems right.
