Lewes, De. The Secret Spot
Today James Roe and I scored fabulous conditions on the Deleware Bay! The Secret Spot was firing! I've dubbed the session "The Jump-a-palooza" at the Secret Spot!
The wind was WNW which is pretty much side shore at this venue. The ramps on the outside where perfect for busting out big floaty jumps.
We hit the water around 9.30, I rode my 91 ltr and a juiced 5.0. Sailed that for about 30 minutes, then it got really windy. Time to pull out the 77ltr board! Rigged down to my 4.5. I was LIT! In the gusts, could of been on a 3.6! Beautiful sun light off the water on the reach back to the beach. Pretty magical and was great to share the experience with someone else.

Man, the junps on the outside where some of my biggest ever on the Deleware bay. That aint too hard in side shore 4.5 conditions at a deep water venue! Huge!
I took a few minutes out of the action to snap a few shots of James. He was on a 4.2
