To say we were blessed on the first week is an understatement – especially if you’d looked at the forecast. In short both WG and WF were hinting at a week of tanning with not a puff of wind in site. Turns out the group must have been carrying some heftily good Karma as we finished with 5 days out of 6. Kite beach wasn’t quite it’s usual frothing white and blue for this time of year, but it gave us enough to enjoy and progress, keeping the smiles alive, the morning soreness a guarantee and the gushing sinuses a constant. Even the 17m Contra had some good sessions, a surprising addition to the wave quiver… As such we didn’t get much on the photo front as the video and coaching were the priority:)
Cape Verde 2 continued but with more of the wavey stuff – definitely worth missing the 6 Nations for (as long as you can record it:). An amazing week packed full of waves and wind, plenty of carving and a lot of airs – get in there. Think that between them Bettina coming from SF and Matt from Aus deserved the conditions, whilst the rest of you indulged with glee. And a few surprises – will we ever forget that Umberto, with his eclectic taste, was the first to name Run the Jewels… Seems like too long ago but at least next year’s trip will be sooner.
