Epic Day at Hookipa

Yesterday was an epic day at Hookipa!  The waves were logo to mast and the wind was light and off-shore.  Everyone was at the beach when my Dad and I got there and it just looked like one of those days!  A day where all the pros were out shredding in the best Hookipa had to offer! 

     As soon as I went out I caught a wave!  It was pitching up and I went down the line!  I set the rail into a bottom turn, and flopped over in the water.  I water-started and tried to think of what went wrong.  I caught a few more waves without better results and that’s when I realized I was in a funk.  It wasn’t my gear or the conditions, it was just me!  So I caught the biggest wave I could find and bottom turned late.  I went up under the lip which through me over the falls!  I hung on for dear life and took one last breathe before getting axed by the wave.  I went in a loop twice while in the barrel and then took the sleigh ride all the way in.  I gasped when I breached the surface and sat on my board to take a breather.  Now I was ready to sail! 

     For the next two hours I had one of the best sessions of my life!  I was hitting the lip more vertically than ever and my bottom turns seemed almost flawless!  Sometimes I need a kick in the butt to get my head in the game!
