    It's been a long time coming. I've been told that I'm 'so close' for about the last year and a half. It was a beautiful day to ride in San Diego today. It was a bit chilly for here - upper 40s, low 50s when we 1st started. Water temps were around 60, but there was no wind and nobody else riding, so it was great water. Anyway, I'm so glad I finally got one of these landed before the end of the year. I had many others that were very close today (& many other days I suppose), so I expect to be getting a lot more of these and other inverts in the near future.

    Brett has been persistently throwing gainer attempts for sooo long. He was a crashing machine! He would try on average something like 10 gainers each session. So it was with honest appreciation that we all cheered for him finally pulling it off and riding it away, despite my excessive bump. I'm sure there will be many more to come.

    Bright sunshine, smooth water and warming air temps made for a great day on Mission Bay. Big thanks to brett for an awesome ride. Winter here sure does suck!

    Eric, our beginner third pulled off three nice air jumps in succession too. A brisk morning seems to get everyone rolling!

    Congrats on the first one. Seems like after the first they come much easier. Nothing feels better than the first time!
