    No idea buddy! Never measured it and it's out of my possession right now attempting to be repaired. Rode my new back up Neumatic tonight at Rincon. Felt good. Got some nuggets.

    By the way, if those tossers in Red you support win leg two against City next week they are gonna cause me to not be able to attend the Derby, because the game will be moved. Go Manchester City!

    Had an insane session tonight at Rincon. Head to overhead sets, fast, long, lined up zippers! The kind of night you'd want to relive over and over again. Down to about 20% full air in my mat these days and it's feeling fantastic.

    Good stuff. Great over here too but I'm ill and have missed the lot.

    Sad

    I'm on the mend. Hoping for a waste high session on Sunday. Won't be able to manage much more.

    How's Tugboat?

    I don't know how Tugboat is, still in the hands of a friend back east. I am not hopeful. These days I am making it work on a generic one off made by Dale for a shop in Oregon. They are working well though.

    Yes, this is on a Contrail. In fact it is one of the last waves ever ridden on Tugboat. His death was actually the day after JP Taylor shot those 5 waves on video.
