Goals for 2008.

It's winter, there is nothing to do but dream of tricks. What are your goals for the year?

For me, the goals are the same as they have been for the last 3 years. I failed miserably to learn these in NZ, so I have no idea how I will find the time here in North America.

Flakas. Shakas. Pushloops. Big forwards.

That's all. I'm not asking much eh?

Flaka attempts messed up my shoulder in the fall and it is still in bad shape. Amazing how switching to an underhand grip with the front hand would have prevented it all. Wierd anatomics.

Shakas - I don't think they are as hard as they look. I made one in NZ, but haven't had much luck since. They are SO cool looking. I'm all over them this year, in fact, I'll take them happily over flakas...

Pushloops. Just needs some conditions to try them, which seem to alude us here in Canada all the time.

BIG forwards. Yes, I became a wimp after dinging my MCL in the Gorge on a flat landing. Stalled big forwards. Yup.

What are your goals? Have a great 2008 where ever you are with lots of wind and waves!

Glad you started updating your WS blog. My goals are simple too, just get my ass out there!

Hey Nic, thanks for checking out this blog once in a while. Yeah, ditto - that seems like a reasonable goal!! Hope to see you on the water soon!

Hey Fish, james Court here. Just stumbled over your blog and viewing old NZ posts. Really really missing your's and Leland's enthusiasm and inspiration in the ditch.

Things are pretty slow here windwise although still getting at least one good sail a week. Finally pulling out consistent spocks and spock 540's occasionally. Troy and I are also getting the odd shove-it. About 1 or 2 every session at the mo.
