Well, well, well. Some say three holes in the ground but I say it was one crazy weekend.
Amazing weather, fun little waves, some sunburn and way too many XXXX gold’s about sums it up.
Jacko Maynard doing the SLSC proud competing in the elite Nutri-Grain series. These blokes (and girls) are incredible athletes. I had never been to a race live but seeing how serious this race is, it was incredible experience.
Sunday was a elimination of 5 competitors each race. While Jacko was just eliminated after the first race (of 3) even to be there at this level is a inspiration. When I cracked that first beer yesterday afternoon I felt like I should have been going for a run or something instead. Only lasted for a sip or two though.
The girls as well. Amazing.
When Shannon Eckstein won he collapsed on the sand. The effort he had just put in had taken everything out of him. Ky hurst, the big man that he is even looked pained but like the true champion he is looked like a machine as well as all of them. Thanks to you guys for a very watchable event.
