Guy Miller got a 46.4 mph reading on his GPS! He says someday he'll show me his shoveit. I keep asking to see it, but I think for now he's keeping his secret move under wraps. Tried ~15 back loops on starboard. Bailed out of 2. Made an effort to crouch into a ball after noticing that my legs were too straight on the first attempts. Still trying to get Kimo to start trying them. Back in the wakeboarding days, he used to attempt forward flips as his last move of the day...which is far scarier than BLs. Made some progress I think on turning my donkey kicks into table tops on port. L said she saw a shove-it attempt on starboard, but I wasn't trying them. A bit odd how when I'm trying them she doesn't recognize them, but when i'm not, she does. Stefan said he saw me do "one of those off the lip things with the weird name." hmmm....shove-it? "No" ...back loop? "No" ... Goiter? "Yeah, I saw you do one of those." Strange day, people seeing me do things that I wasn't actually doing. Got butt-slammed a few times during those crazy 40 mph gusts. PSB: NXNW Black
