Blog reader Patrick commented: "There cannot exist a picture that sums up your blog better than this one. A smiling girl, a beautiful behind and the Italian waterman. Excellente!"
Thanks to both, I totally agree.
If I was a better sailor I'd be flying with a big aerial over that section (still safe for Laura) and that would have been a magazine (is there still such a thing?) shot... well, I'm sure trying more aerials these days (see below), so maybe one day...
These are the shots I took yesterday in between sessions.

|Muzza is having a great time. Every windsurfer at Hookipa is having a great time, I believe.|

|Patrick likes to do that. I guess I would like to do that to if I knew how...|
My first 20 minutes yesterday were particularly inspired. On one wave I did something that I never did before: two aerials!
That means that I landed the first one in front, which is already quite rare for me. This sequence is the second one which instead went off the back. Stoked.

Thanks to all the photographers!!!
Forecast keeps looking great. The start of this Spring is bloody fantastic.
Got to go to work now, but it's only a five hours shift... I'm out at 2pm when a NW swell will start rising... it's a pleasure to go to work with that in mind... :)
