Ocean Addicts bop race

Ocean Addicts event sunshine coast 20-11-2011Paul Jackson and me after the race .
The big screen was great to watch the race 
Well , decided to give the sunshine coast race a go on the weekend , jamie mitchell and myself packed the car and headed off up the road , for a day of racing and talking . Jamie was guest commentator and also gave the boys up at coolum a hand with the coarse set . The event was really well organised and a great day was had by all ,conditions were tricky with 2-3 foot sets rolling in with a15-knot north east wind and low tide , the coarse was a M shape coarse with about a 250 m run , 5 laps. Pain...........but it was all good fun, well done to the organisers ,sponsors , and crew who turned up ,i finished with a 5th in the open mens race , so i was happy with that ,i was more happy that i did nt fall off once in the entire race , which i got to say , the hobie 12, 6 elite race  board handled really well , very stable and surf s really well . Anyway off to merimbula this week for the event down there , should be good fun ,let you all know how it is in the next post. 
Here is a photo of the winner ,Kelly Margets , man hes quick , better start training to keep on his wash .Big thanks to mark my caddie for the day .....always had my board there waiting....
till next time ............never take the first set ..........cheers justin
