**Update 6/16/08- New Pics added!
Initial side note: I’m cast free! I’m almost totally healed up, but my hand’s a little sore from lack of use. The bone feels pretty solid, but I think I’m going to give it a few more days before really charging. In any case, I can’t wait to get back in the water!
About to wash my hand for the first time in weeks!
Moving on, to Loopfest:
Tonight, I gave an informal forward loop clinic, hosted by Sailworld Cape Hatteras. It was easy to see the intensity in everyone’s eyes as I explained some of the intricacies of surviving your first loop! We’ve got a great crew of people interested in chucking them, from 16 years old to 46 years young in attendance this evening. There’s a possibility of a dawn session tomorrow morning, down at Isabel’s, and everyone is super amped up to take their sailing to the next level!

Dakine, Quatro, and Avon Sail House hooked up the Loopfest participants with a bunch of T-shirts and rashguards, and we also gave out a Dakine T3 Harness to lucky winner George! And GoPro sent us a bunch of Helmet Hero waterproof video cameras and helmet mounts to help catch the action! We’ve still got quite a few rad prizes left for the registered Loopfest participants, including a Dakine Impact Harness, Simmer wave sail, and a KA wave sail, along with a bunch of other swag! So if you didn’t get anything tonight, don’t worry, because there’s more to come!
