Well 2017 is going down as “Awesome”. It was Pretty much a repeat of 2016 except supercharged. Its was another year were Dareef was Liquid all year, that made accomplishing my goal of 100 days in the waves easy, and now that I have found my niche in the Foiling game , with “Surf foiling” its going to be sooo easy to get 100days every year.
Now that I am looking back at the last 12 months it was a incredible year of so many first. Building 2 Special Boards (Red Barron, Mystery Machine) that really broke the boundaries of what is possible was awesome by itself. Then to be truly at the for front of an emerging sport with Surf & Surf wind foiling is such a addicting rush. I will never forget the luck of catching and experiencing some of the best hurricane surf in Hatteras ever! Last but not lest, getting the chance to live on one of the best fresh water surf spots in the world for 100+ sessions, Its hard to imagine a better life. But hey! ya never know, Bring on 2018 and Da stats.!
