Rain is continous and unless the dams are very controlling and there are no tributaries, the water will come up quickly in the next 6 hours. People are not performing to their peak and missing moves that they “could” perform under the circumstances but opt for the world’s record ride attempt and score low by missing a ton of moves.

I will focus on my 1,200 point ride routine, but keep the moves in check to assure that I nail one at a time and not get flustered if I miss one.

This is a lot for 45 seconds, but if I nail each one on my first try with little set up, it will go.

If the water comes up and the hole starts bubbling out again, I will focus on throwing moves only when it is breaking properly and use bubbly time as a set up on top for phonics Monkey, and throw the McNasty when I am still in a side surf but the hole is breaking good.

2:09- Heat 1 starts in 21 minutes. I am in heat 4. Stephen Wright goes in heat 1 I should get in the water for a warm up after heat 2 does their second ride. Do some cartwheels, some wave surfing, and get out of my boat before it is my time to go. I am last in my heat to go.

Watch Stephen without my gear on, keep a rain coat on for warmth, get my boat and walk it to the put-in, then come to room and get dressed and go.
