From Hero to Zero … still can’t figure out surfing. At the US Open I finally made it into a man-on-man heat in a ‘QS event. The pier was busy with too many people drinking energy drinks with spray on tattooes.

No luck in Japan but did OK in Cali.

Winning there was bittersweet. I’ve competed in HB for 10 years waiting for that day. My wife and daughter pushed through the masses to watch each day and cheer me on.

Feeling great about that event I headed to Japan for a shocking-ly bad time. I lost first heat and was in the country for only two days … My Japanese visa to get in took longer. That’s surfing. Home sweet home for a week and then off to France. Fingers crossed.
