End of year Summary. Had some great days and winging makes even mediocre days better which is why I did that so much.
Busiest year with 204 days wing/wind/kitesurf, plus some days wakeboarding , SUPs and kayaks.
So much wingfoiling as it suits my local beach for fun most days. Can gybe wingfoil, not tack and enjoy picking swells and waves to ride even if only for a few seconds, but if big enough and long-lived reckon a few 20+ seconds which were thrilling. Only kitesurfed at local, and when too onshore to wing.

Sessions: Windsurfing (16), Kite surfing (14), Wing Boarding (194), Wakeboarding (11).

Windsurf sails used - 3.7m (0), 4.2m (6), 4.7m (11), 5.3m (1), 6m (0), reflecting mostly only windsurf when windy for Rhosneigr waves (10) and locally. Sold 7.5m as not used for well over a year.

Kites used - 9m (4), 12m (12).

Wing – 3m (6), 4m (65), 5m (85), 6m (66). Got 3m late in year so maybe use a bit more next year and 4m bit less

Correlating kites and wings to windsurf sail sizes 11% of session were <=4.2m, 29% <=4.7m, 41% <=5.3m and 64% <=6m. Before winging <=6m was more like 75-80% reflecting winging allows more light wind sessions.
