Flykatcher 4th in Pistol RiverReporting a super fun mission back home to the West Coast USA for many awesome Waddell Creek / Davenport sessions, a good tune up for the 2012 AWT Pistol River Wave Bash up into the woods in Oregon where it was just as always, windy 3.7 to 4.5 every day with that ever present wind swell. The comp went well where it ended for me in 4th. Also good to see Whit Poor getting in on some action at 9th after his nearly year off due to injury.
The highlight for the whole period was how much I enjoyed the all out effectiveness of my Simmer Quantum Quad.
Absolutely a huge advantage in conditions where you need to squeeze more momentum from every minimal wind-swell wave riding opportunity. The fact that my Quantum Quad was so tuned in for the side to side onshore wind angle that most of those spots featured, was a massive confidence boost to every session no matter if in a heat or not.
