I really wanted to try out the cutdown Maliko tail - but I was having too much fun riding the Iwa-Kai tail combo.
+1.9' tide (caught it right at the high), waist high (with some chest high ones on the sets) swell and a light chop on the surface from a light breeze. I caught a ton of waves - with some really long rides. There were a lot of people in the water - had to bob and weave around them, so I migrated to Fenceline. Derek Hamasaki was out - doing flips with the new Go Foil GL180 - was pretty cool. Damion was looking right at Derek when he pulled a flip - Damion looked at me and asked if I could do that (I say 'No'). Blah!!!!
