Thats right fellow Reef warriors, I am alive. I crawled out of my snow cave and saw some grass. Its been a long winter(22 days snowkiting to be exact), but the ice is starting to melt. and i am thinking its time to Surf. I am so pumped to get back in the water, I am ordering a new addition to the shack. most likely in the 115L version. stay tuned. In the mean time, i will try to get the blog up to date with some good stuff. And kudos to Reef warrior Master Lou for doing such a kick ass job with the new site. We owe ya lots of our Rum rashings.
