I'm rarely pissed off.
But these days I am. For a bunch of reasons.
I'm going to just describe my last masterpiece.
I went out at 4pm at Hookipa with the slalom board (it was windy on the outside and there were no waves at all).
The tide was superlow and I knew there was a high risk of hitting the reef right at the shore break. Instead of walking out a bit in deeper water, I launched anyway.
Sure enough the fin got stucked, I dinged my board in the fin box (good luck with the repair...) and I landed pretty hard on the reef plugging a deep hole in my foot.
And tomorrow there's a big swell coming.
I'm such a kook... and I'm so pissed off...
Fortunately somebody else is quite happy these days. Read what my friend Bill has to say about longboard sailing.
As for myself, I think I need a carpet session...
That's what I do when I'm pissed off or I think I have a problem.
I lay down on the carpet and pretend I can't move my legs. Then I say:"ok, let's go to the bathroom!"
It only takes me few feet of crawling on my elbows and I realize how lucky I am that I can move my legs. And I have no right to complain for anything!
You guys should try... it works!
Big respect and love to all the people on a wheelchair that will eventually read this.
