And, like a Swiss Army Knife, there are so many other sides to the Islands.

its very versatile, and personally it becomes less fun to me in anything over 15kts wind so don't feel too bad cuz you would have been fighting it more than enjoying it if the winds were over 15.
i had one of the most enjoyable days yet in my TI yesterday. winds were between 6-12 all day and i went and raced my parents in their big boat (40 ft). when we peddled hard we could gain on them but as soon as we stopped peddling we slowed down. they had 2 big sails to my 1 and i believe they said we were going about 7-8 at one point.
i got my wife to enjoy the surfing aspect of it yesterday. after a big boat goes zooming by us creating a big wake we would just turn away from it and start peddling to catch the wave. awesome times.
