Aloha Dom,

Looks like you had great Mother's Day surf down there in the Cape.
We are waiting for our first big south swell, supposed to hit by end of the week.
Hope it's big & clean.

Hugh

Off the subject but this is what I did Sat night: 125cc shifter kart race
un-eddited so kinda slow at beginning while we grid up.
2:44 start warmup lap to bring tires up to temp
race start 4:30 - 15 laps at 37-38 sec per lap
average speed 75mph over 6/10 mile track
27 gear changes per lap, +3G on fast corners
Yes 1st Place
enjoy....

Wednesday - midweek session - always sweeter than the weekend ...

Sun + Surf + Lip Slides + Tail Snaps + 360's + Big Airs + Cut Backs + Rotations + Down the line Pumps + Off the lip's + Bottom turns + Floater's = Another Great Session !
