I owe my sanity to Cheryl. She is incredible.
I had my first day pass yesterday and a second bonus half day pass today. This weekend was the final Freewave Event of the '06/07 year, but, yesterday was a big nuker!
Friday was huge in Lyall Bay - winds cranked up to 30kts+ and the waves were up beyond mast high. Despite being tired as hell, I made the most of the day pass and sailed like a demon from 2-5pm. The airtime was huge!!! I stuck a nice big floater crazy pete, but once again - could not nab the elusive backloop. Definitely had some of my biggest attempts ever!
Today unfortunately, the wind just did not develop and with the shite forecast, the Freewave is done. Third place finish for me! Have to be happy enough with that!
