This morning the forecast was 26 mph early morning and late afternoon, so I decided to go early. I rig a 5.0 on my 88L board, winds out of the west and its a toasty 42 degrees. I was nicely powered and the water isn't that choppy so jibing wasn't that difficult. But, within 20 minutes my fingers are hurting so bad I have to go in and get gloves. Fortunately its sunny out and I'm able to get warmed up on the leeward side of some bushes. I head back out but after an hour I was done.
