I borrowed Scooty's gun for this trip - a very linear - 7"2 thruster made by Yvonne Chouinard's son - Fletcher. Had one of the best day of waves ever on this about 6 years ago. Large, hollow lefts in Mexico. This board is really, really fast and strong down the line. It's a fricking great board.
And finally - I lament leaving. The crew is going to Fruita this weekend and I am sure they are going to have a blast. The ride in this am was so amazingly pretty - like perfect out and birds chirping and snow pouring down off the trees. 40 by the time I left the house and it was toasty and spring like until the drop. Now - I gotta blast home, finish packing the boards and all our gear, and try and sleep - as tomorrow is going to be a hella long day. Leave Denver at 11am; Atlanta, Panama City - a 6 hour bus ride to make high tide - and a boat ride to the island. After that.....keeping it mellow for 8 days on the island. Hasta Luego as they say.....STay Metal - as they say as well. Whoever it is - that they are.
