Down The Line at the Gold Beach South Jetty - a ride like this can make all the miles and waiting worth it

2016 AWT Pistol River Wave Bash

I just finished 10 days on the amazing Oregon Coast, although I only scored 4 of them while I was there. Great people and the 2016 Pistol River Wave Bash, a great contest made the trip! You can check my b\buddies’ and PWA pro, Phil Soltysiak’s write up on the event.

I didn’t finish as well as I hoped, but am I already looking forward to next year. The highlight of the trip was a great day at the Gold Beach South Jetty. Time to train and work on wave selection and timing on the wave for next year.

Back from the Wave Bash

I’m back from the wave bash, which was awesome, and I’m already looking forward to next year.  The first two days saw awesome winds, I headed out on my 4.7 and was very over powered in my first heat, and managed to score only 1 wave.  The following day saw light winds in the morning and I struggled to make it out to the line up.  But all in all the KA Kult sails performed awesome!

Some of the highlight where watching young Bernd Rodieger rip it up, and score one of the best waves of the whole event.  Kevin Pritchard was also out throwing huge one footed back loops, and Fransisco Goya tearing it up in the finals, Kevin ended up winning the second final heat after Goya edged him out in the first heat with light winds.  One of the biggest highlights for me was when Robby Naish showed up on the second day and was ripping it up and throwing down for the Shadow box jump off.

Full Results can be found here.
