|The view on arrival|
Everyone out was picking waves off all the time. Quite often I wasn't when Wigwam, Colin and Tim Cox ( In James Cox's absence) were picking up choice ones, so I changed my tactic to follow them around and erm, maybe share a few! Because there was so much wind (I was on my smallest 4.2 - second use since September) it was also good for jumping, with some decent backloop ramps appearing every now and then.
Liz came down with Casey for a little while, he was soo excited by it all and wanted to hold on to all the kit (which can only be a good thing). I think what Liz said sums the day up really, she said it was amazing, there was such a good atmosphere with loads of vans turning up with really excited people and loads of people on the beach just watching it all.
Maybe it wasn't quite the classic I expected, but to get that you need a 12 second period. Today was only 8.5second. However it was so much fun, the whole week has been amazing. Wigham and Colin both taken time off there work - how lucky are they. And I am just on half term - I wouldn't wanted to have been anywhere else but here this week.

Rest of the pictures from the day below:

Maybe the worst (but perhaps the funniest) was the absence of James Cox and Gregg Dunnett both away on family get together's, but at least in windy flat water places. Do I feel bad, not really it's happened the other way round plenty of times before....
Kit wise today, I was on a 4.2 Simmer Icon and 82 Mistral twinzer. I must be getting fat because I can't see when I would ever need smaller. I did change the fins down to some of Steve's K4 16 inch stubbies.
