I'm glad to see that your stoke is high for most of the GRF, but I can see that the low-water blues have started to get to you. I feel your pain as I haven't kayaked since injuring my shoulder on my first trip of the season (Escalante Creek, April 1st - no fooling). But be stoked my friend, because in my opinion the wave IS
"looking good". Have you been down to the wave since the jersey barriers were put in? I haven't surfed it, but I wish I could right now. I did run into a couple boaters at the park today who had just taken out and claimed to be pulling off some pretty sweet moves (i didn't even know what some of the other ones were, but appartently cartwheels, splitwheels, and even space godzillas were going down).
I think it seems unfair to say that I was lying about the hole or being underhanded in any way. Maybe I'm an optimist, but I'm also an honest guy. I didn't say the hole was epic and there were going to be huge aerial loops, I just said it was "looking good", which I believe is true (especially considering the circumstances) - I can pretty much guarantee that the inflatable rodeo is going to be highly entertaining and I'm pretty sure the kayakers (and everybody else for that matter) are going to have fun too. In case you haven't been down there to surf or check it out (and to show everybody what I'm talking about), I included a few pictures from this afternoon at the bottom of this post.
We hope to see you and many other folks out having a blast this weekend at the Festival, starting tomorrow night at 5:30!
