Every year I am always so fired up for the first long boat training lap on the Green. This year I was especially fired up because normally I have to do my first lap and shake off the cobwebs just a few days before the race, this year I got to do mine a whole month before. Although since then there has hardly been any days to do more training, it has helped being able to spend more time in a long boat than I normally would get before the race. This wasn’t the Sub 4 debut run I was looking for, but pulling out of the start line for the first time gets me every time. Now only a few weeks away, let’s hope I can get some more laps and clean up the lines!
There is only one Pyranha ripper available on the West coast of America right now, all of the other ones have already been sold or taken by kayak shops. Myself and Dave Fusilli have been arguing about who should become the rightful owner of this kayak for the past two weeks, finally we decided to settle it like men. By battling through three / four highly serious challenges.
