Well after 11 days in hatteras and scoring Sweet waves every day, i now need a vacation from my vacation. Hehe. I am beat! I got cuts, dings, bruises, Callas, and pain all over the place! But my mind is so stoked! I cant wait to get back on the da Reef!
First thing! thanks everybody for all the support during the AWT Wave Jam contest. That was super cool. The contest itself was fun and frustrating( mostly cause lack of wind). The first couple of days were only good for side off Sup sailing with perfect waist high sets! Soo much fun. But they didn’t get around to running anything like that, till late in the second day, finally they made the call and they had 32 contestants sign up! They got one round of heats in before the wind let up! Which was a bummer, i was a favorite to win that.
Day 3 and 4 had no wind until the last 3 hours of day 4! I got a quick 1 hour sesh in, Before i came in to watch the pros do there thing. It was super fun to watch them rip it up! You you don’t get to see that everyday! And that was pretty much it for the contest. Was not enough time to run anything else. So for the second time in a row at Wave Jam i did not get to compete due to lack of wind. I cant really complain thou, the wind before and after the event was great and the waves were huge and peeling the hole time. Don’t get much better than that. Definitely worth the Trip!
