competition in Kirkwood and surfing Maverick

The conditions at the FWT competition in Kirkwood where not the best, it did not snow for a long time and it is a dangerous face with shaky rocks and lots of threes.  My run was ok but not good enough, I did not really get in the flow. Is not so easy after a long travel, jetlag from 9 hours, conditions how are not the best and waiting for 2 hours at the start before to go. I backslapped in the upper part, there where lots of tracks in the hard snow and a moment in the middle part where I almost stopped because while riding I got a bad feeling about the landing of a big cliff I had planned to jump. But I stumped the cliffs good, did a nice bs 270 and had a speedy line. You can see my run at, http://wepowder.nl/weblog/4251/Tiende-plaats-Irian-in-Kirkwood

After the competition Nadine Walner, Bastian Hanemann and I went back a friend of me in San Francisco. Today we went to Half Moon Bay where I surfed the world famous surf spot Mavericks on a rental board. We fly back the 4th.

The picture of the highway is probably my favourite picture I made this winter, check it out.web kirkwood 1 web kirkwood 2 web green light 5 web green light 6 web surf 3 web surf
