Aw maaan!... are we gonna not get out SSE tweak?? Perhaps not worth playing hooky + 1:15 each way drive. I'll hit the gym instead for now and let's see what evolves.....

Seems like it is picking up....... When I get to Keegs I will try to put an update on the board. Too bad the wind is 190° true. Crossing my fingers that the wind will switch. I NEED TO RIDE!!!! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Great all day despite the burning in my finger tips after the feeling came back during my thaw out sessions.

And fire it did!! Sort of a crappy wave angle and bumpier than a greezy-faced pubescent boy but I ain't complainin'! Everyone was nicely powered on 10s & 11s, with one brave soul who dared a 12 under the partly sunny sky. Awesome early Spring Keegs SE day!! Ready for more!

Guys, I've got these new 3 fingered mitts that are awesomely warm, yet not too thick and very flexy with a nice curved grip for virtually no hand fatigue. Reasonably priced for whatcha get too. I as well as a few others are riding with them and the consensus seems to be unanimous. Hit me up if interested.
