Sooo...embarrassed

I went out to surf the waves/holes in Trail BC when they were in last month. Jud Keiser from 'Team Jackson' was there showing us all to playboat. I got brave and went into the Hero Hole. The hydraulics behind it have always intimidated me but I thought I would try it this year. Then it happened...I got flipped and the gong show began. After many failed rolls (I guessed about 6-7) I finally got up. Jud paddled down and gave me a high five and said "I have never seen anything like that before".
Then I find out someone had been video taping the whole thing, so when we watched it I was shocked to find out I had actuallly rolled 10 times and got up on the 11th. Not at all what i want to be rememered for.

Embarrassed would have been to get worked, not even try a roll, ditch your boat and paddle then panic the whole way down until someone saves you at which point you make excuses as to why you didn't try a roll. That's how I always do it.

Hell, you didn't come out of your boat. Way to hang in there.

Jud is a good man...

Who ever shot it, ask them to put it on Youtube or Vimeo.

I would never be embarrassed to get worked and then roll up. I usually don't have the intestinal fortitude to try for 10 rolls, so I would be really proud if I could hold out that long. Way to go!!

I only laughed because I would have pulled out at least 5 tries earlier. Way to stick with it.
