Had a fun am freestyle sesh @ The Hatch. Got some fun shov-its and 2 good (I think) table tops. Pretty lit 3.8 for a while.

Then we raced out to The Wall and it was pretty bad. We waited around for 1.5 hours and finally decided to drive to Arly. It had been blowing well out there for a while. 

When we drove up towards Arly it was lit up!  It looked spectacular!  I quickly rigged 3.0 and hit the water. It was very good for 1 hour 4:15-5:15 and then it just got crappy. But man, for 1 hour it was so fun. I got a giant starboard shov-it, one of the bigger ones ever, I think. Just as I hit the ramp a giant gust came through and I got a lot of lift. So fun!  I also got a very good (I think) table top on starboard on one of those big ramps by the Arly launch. It felt good and it felt big. The swell was pretty decent and the wind direction was good too. It was so hot at The Wall and Arly!  I wore my shorty @ Arly and it felt great!!

We then picked up Thai food in The Dalles and called it a day. It was a long day.
