Sorry for slacking on the blog, but all these trips have meant lots of homework to catch up on! I’ve finally got all caught up so I can start writing again, and what a sick day to start!
This morning was totally flat and it looked like the huge swell that was supposed to pump in today wasn’t gonna happen! Then, later in the day, we got the report that the waves were coming in and we went to check Hookipa. When we got down the waves were starting to pump in and I rigged up! After about a half an hour this sick mast high set came rolling through and I caught it! The wave shouldered to the corkscrew and then I busted a wave 360 right under the lip! It was the highest 360 I’ve ever done and I was so surprised that I just sat at the apex looking around at the view until I fell out the back! After that a few more sets came through until the tide shifted and the waves went down. I caught a little wave on the inside and went into a sick Spock. It was sick because I went tail first down the face, almost like a Stalled Spock!
After a while the wind started to die so I decided to head in. All of the sudden another set came in and I was in the perfect position! I pumped onto it and shot down the line! Then I laid down the sail and shot up under the lip! The lip hit me and shot me up and over the whitewater where I floated down and landed softly into the flats! I went in right away because I knew I wouldn’t get a wave like that anytime soon!
