Yes, I was there 11_1:30, between jetties, a.k.a gettys :lol:
There were 4 other riders. Some on 7s, some on 10s, I was on a 12, and there was time that each of these sizes was perfect (glass half-full view).
Frankly, it was a messy session, the wind just wouldn't stay the same for 5 minutes, both the speed, and the direction.
Fun nevertheless: warm water, spectacular clouds, even some sun.

Sweet! Wish I could have been there to just even watch. Love seeing people push to try new moves.

Yeah, adseguy,
You could see a lot of new moves, for example, me being dragged on my back across wet sand when a huge, and rather unexpected gust came after I landed.
P.S. - no damage - except for badly bruised ego :oops:

Amazing how the wind graph can confuse when compared to the actual experience of those who were riding. It looks like a case study, just take a look..
