Right so generally feel like I've been sailing pretty well! Definitely been enjoying the pressure and managing to perform my simple moves and getting by on consistency. I went out of the 1st double against Ruenes who was sailing really well. Today in the 2nd single I was drawn against a Turkish guy Yagil and I knew I would have to sail well as he has been pretty consistent also. However I still managed to crash my opening move a Puneta which I think I have crashed as my opener in every heat without fail so I knew I was off to a good start!! Went switch straight after and stuck a fully planning one so it was ok! I made my Ponch, shaka, air flaka and double flaka on the way out but knew I was missing a move on the way in as I dropped my switch flaka. Luckilly I passed through by quite a few points. Next up Tonky! haha No pressure really so went out and had fun so I opened my heat with a fully planning air flaka and then stacked a biig shaka straight after. I was fully powered on 4.5 and was going for stuff I never normally would in a heat so went straight into a puneta 900 then went for a future on the way out but I couldn't quite get the whip out of my ponch!
The last few days I have been doing the live streaming commentary with Ben Profitt which has been pretty entertaining and I hope anyone listening has enjoyed it!
I have seen the draw for the double tomorrow and I have somehow got a by into the next round which is a bit luck once again. So I'll face the winner of Ian Mouro Lemos and Steven Van Broekhoven but SVB is injured so its looking like I will face Ian! Hopefully I can d enough to beat Ian and get into 9th position in the 2nd double but if I dont I will finish 13th again so it shouldnt be a bad overall result!
I did and interview with KP today that may make it on to ESPN Asia, I was talking about my 4.5 North Ice!
