A couple of things.
I'll get the weekend waves out of the way first. Same Bat time, etc as last week, Flynns, 3-5 ft and shifty winds, but a very fun session except for a couple of dings In the borrowed MC from a guy abandoning his board with exquisitely bad timing.
As they say, shit happens, but I did say a rude word, which is not my custom, and I felt sorry for the guy afterward... he paddled that nose in the air way that said no too familiar with the water.
Still, great fun, plenty of waves, a good start to a new week. Sorry 'bout the shot. Timing is everything and I just missed the best moments because we had to leave early as Richie had to go to a party. D'oh.
The other thing..?
We received footage today, shot last week, of Derek H at J-Bay on a variety of boards. Astounding stuff. Any of those guys on the Swaylocks forums who say drive only comes from the fin will sit back a foot or two when they see this stuff. Picture a six foot plus Supertubes wave, DH on a 4'6", doing a carving, deep, long bottom turn, under the lip 360, then driving into a looooong barrel, and making it. Unfortunately that particular one we can't use as the tripod shook terribly at the worst possible moment, but there were other equally wonderful shots.
We cut some of them into the film this afternoon. Am I smiling or what?
