Sandys Slamming-- 8/5/06
Date: August 5, 2006
Words: Missed most of the south swell that happened over the week. Such is life.
Went to Sandys early in the morn to hook up with some photo friends to talk some business. Ended up jumping into the challenging conditions, photo-slutting again.
Scored a few nice ones, but also took some pretty bad wipeouts. There was one where I got stuck in the lip, falling in a standup position. Felt so vulnerable as I went weightless and came down. Fortunately, wasn't so bad.
In the end I came out of the water with a restrained neck and shoulder. Was it worth it? Ask any surfer and they'll answer.
Aloha from Paradise,
