A very fun day.  Very powered, lots of ramps, sweet vulcanatoriam.  I tried probably 30 "vulcans".  One time I actually felt like something other than a jump jibe was going on.  I need to recreate that feeling a thousand more times.  Brian's advice of not hopping too much really helped.  I would push twice and then let it rip.  Most of the time my board turned 2 degrees.  Perfect shove-it set up, but the 4.2 doesn't have a hole in it so I held back.  It was fun to come blasting on the back of the little waves the island was causing into vulcanatoriam.  I really missed my vulcan inspiration (B) and my "vulcan" buddy (M).  If they had been there I probably would have landed one hahaha.
