Big winds = Big Air!

We have been getting some big winds here in Baja last week. Gusting in the 35 mph range.
The love of my life (My Placebo Rocket) is finally going in for some surgery.............She has a serious stress fracture behind the front heel near the rail.

Nice ones... Hmm... that might move the dress shot out of the header... Although, that is a great shot. With boosts like that you are going to crack some epoxy, no doubt about it. Better the epoxy than your knees and ankles I always say. Great stuff.

I landed the first one (where my back foot is actually airborn). The second one was about 15 feet up, with only wind swell for a ramp, and the wind was getting holey. I didn't even try to land. Just into it the boosting, and seeing how high above my head I could get the board. SO MUCH FUN!

My baby is in for some deck repairs, because I want her to last all winter. I have a Cabrinha 5'6" Skillet to demo today, so I will post a personal review soon!

Lonny, don't take the dress shot out of the header, I was just messing with you. It's a good representation that chicks can RIP strapless, and still be lady-like! Hahaaaaa
