"Most of my boards never arrived ... "
OUT OF AFRICA
Sometime things just don't fall into place. Went to J-Bay about five days early to make sure boards would arrive and even went for the two small board bags to make sure my chances of getting one would be better. I got one, but the one with most of my boards never arrived and no one could find it. I was looking on the bright side and was happy to at least have a couple of boards.
I went for a couple of free surfs and one of the boards I had worked good so was amping. Then went out for my heat and caught the best wave I have ever caught at J-Bay and blew the wave and broke my good board.
My other board was pretty crap, I rode it against Mick C, got smoked, and went home with my tail between my legs. The one good thing was I was able to make my daughter's cowgirl birthday party, which rocked the barn.
