Oh man, good ol' Casino delivered again...I wasn't expecting waves that powerful since it was blowing hard only since few hours.

Maybe it's just me getting older but I found it challenging at times...by the end of the day though when the wind gave up those 5 knots it was quite awesome with bigger and cleaner waves.

Too bad that my legs couldn't take it anymore to enjoy for a little longer the show offered by the sun setting and the big full moon on the other side from a pretty amazing point of view, it's amazing how pretty it can become even when you have an ugly Casino on one side and steel mills on the other... :wink:

It was good to see everyone doing well, thanks Ben for coming and check on me when my kite inverted and I had to rescue my board on the beach down east.

Can't wait for the next one!
