55 Finally, the long overdue powered-up wave session i'd lusted after. had a couple of probably my highest jumps ever. Getting better at timing the sB3 on a little wave face. totally lost the gear once trying to drop in on a big outside breaker. intense trying to get it back (but I no longer feel guilty about having skipped my tuesday swim workout). Also had my first big crashes from taking high one-handed jumps. Session # 2 borrowed Matt's helmet and tried some backs. 1st attempt like slo-mo and i had a clear sense of what I was doing wrong. 2nd attempt got spooked after slamming my head, ear down, from a good height. His helmet doesnt have ear guards. think I'll use ear protection before the next time I try. but I know what to do better. just get me another chance. tomorrow? pretty please
