Good for you mang. I hope you got the opportunity to ask him when they're doing a roll clinic or any lessons. thats a golden opportunity, living there. you cant underestimate the advantage of top-notch instruction like EJ is known for.
I spent a season and a half swimming every time I flipped, with no proper instruction. it was pretty rough. school of hard knocks....is good for learning how to swim.
Although IMO, It was good for me. everyone needs a proper whupping sometimes. gotta have respect for the River.
