I felt good in the event I haven’t sailed a lot this year because Maui has been so bad but I felt tuned in with my new gear and was thankful we had a few days practice before the event started, to shake off the dust. To win another event back to back feels pretty sweet.
I was riding the new cube quad and that was the right decision. It felt amazing in those conditions very quick and responsive for tight turns to fit in those somewhat hidden pockets. The waves only offer a moment here and there so you need to be quick and loose to connect with them. I was riding the new Banzai 4.7 and this year it has reached its full maturity, it’s fully wired, I don’t even think about my sail in my hands any more and that’s where you want to be.
