Yo Ivo, how was the trip, lets here about the riding

We had 9 out 0f 10 days of 10-12 meter riding moslty when you combine that 5 day north followed by the south.

July 4th was light but nice 12-14 meter riding with the 5th and the 6th being world class lit up 10-12 meter riding featuring smooth wind along the shore all day.

Sunday the 7th gave us 2 hours of strong wind on the outside until the clouds killed it
I'd rather be Rollerblading

Great you scored so many days in a row Andrew,beginning of week was quite difficult after "holidays" at Mecca.We had great time,amazing group came along.Thursday and Friday was 9to12m day,smooth wind.Saturday only morning worked,not sure what happen that day,since I didn't see forecast and all magic factors were in,not much of wind in afternoon,we saw some front rolling in wayyyy south of us.Sunday was the best..7-9m,went for downwinder with Petr and Lino,we had to milk our way from begging to get closer to Mecca,but than bammmmmm..it was on like donkeykong:)))

Should I add even Roman came for Mecca bound,now that's something!

Met some old friends from Ann harbor,good times on tap all the time

LMAO Trooper!!!!!!!! What a way to start the day, always FUN rolling with those boyz....... :lol:

And to think Roman even made the trip, that is just great. For those not in the know, Ivo found his own personal campground several years back, and it is outstanding!!!! I imagine the campfires at night with no moon and all those stars was just something else. Sure wish I could have made it, way to bring the good karma up to the Mecca buddy...nicely done........

Did they have cherries and blueberries ready for the pickin too?
