Wow!  What a great day! I loooooovvvvvveeeee the "new" 4.9. It just felt so nice. Especially when trying lay downs and monkeys. Super powered day. Mostly sailed in the cove, but went out into the rough for a while and had some awesome jump jibe attempts. I don't land them, but the fun part is shooting the board way up into the air off the chop. Yah!  Had a hard time refraining from trying a shove-it... Felt like I got some good vulcan pop, but never let go with the back hand and didn't manage even an iota of rotation.
