I chickened out. I didn’t try a loop at Climping on Friday. I got a few good jumps in and even winded myself after I had to bail and splashed down from a good height.
The trouble was, I always had a reason for not doing it. First, it was because I was just warming up. Then, the wind had veered so it was dead onshore and then the waves weren’t pumping. The fact is, I wimped out. Not good enough and now I’ve probably lost my last chance this year.
Well, it was a pretty good day, even if the wind didn’t deliver as much of a punch as we expected. The only real downer was getting dogshit on my boardbag when we were packing up.
