Just gettitng back from a pretty sick trip down to South Padre Island with the nwkite.com crew. It was my first time down that way and damn is it good! We got wind every day from some super steady 13 meter days to some lit 9 meter days with world class flatwater. I was especialy stoked on my new misfit; it was crazy solid for freestyle on the flats but when we went for a cruise all the way across the laguna madre it handled the shipping channel chop like a champ. Coming off some pretty harsh injuries last season I couldnt have had a better trip to get back into the swing of things. 2009 is going to be a great season! Have to send out a huge thanks to the Holmstrands, Henry, Garret, Toby, Trevor, Tony, Eric, and Jenna for making SPI such a sick trip!
