2012 – High and Lowlights!! Part 1

Okay so here is my story of 2012 told by the power of pics and captions!! :)

…What do you mean i’m just lazy and cant be arsed to write… well there might be something in that!! haha..  But still here it is…

So started off the year with a good event in Greenhead Australia.. and won probably the funniest trophy ever!

Had some sick jumping days in Corro's...

..and some fun riding days up north!!!

But all things come to and end.. and it was back to the cold!! ...brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

But not back to bad conditions.. far from it!!! Me and Mr Thorp hit it big time in Thurso!

This place kicks ass!!! ...when the tides right!

Next up.. back to the warm.. for the Simmer 2013 Photo shoot.

We had a new guy doing the pics this year.. and he nailed it!! Nice work mr Simon Crowther

Next up it was back to a Polish wedding (My girlfriends Best friend) I think the pics say it all... oh dear!! Poland 1 - England 0

After i'd recovered from the wedding it was back to the UK for the start of the British comps.. first up Rhosneigr! I ended up 3rd.. Which i was a bit gutted about as i felt i had the moves to win. But i just didn't put it together on the day!

Then it was straight to Ireland.. and i had a shocker in the first heat!! Which meant i was last in the single and would have to rely on the double to make a come back. It was looking good for a while, I made it through 4 heats up in to the battle for 5th... and i felt i was sailing good and on a bit of a roll!! It was light but perfect Starboard tack down the line.. But just as the heat started the wind just shut down!! So with no more competition i got stuck in 5th = for that event and couldn't progress any further!! Gutted was not the word.. as i felt that was me out of the UK title race!

 

Meanwhile.. the misses was killing it with a 1st and a 2nd which meant she was leading the tour! :)

So with not the best start to the UK tour it was time to do some training.. which meant Pozo early and Video camera training ...oh yeah and a lot of gear!
