I remember when I sailed it, I was much deeper in the pit!

Yeah but the wipeouts aren't as bad in your dreams

Yeah it was terrifying but exhilarating. The wind totally died and I was just floating around watching these huge waves rolling in without being able to get anywhere near catching them. It puffed up just enough to pump onto a few - very difficult to get down the face because they were moving so fast under me. Would be good to try again with more wind.
