Its been a bit since I put my butt in a playboat sunny skies and upper 50s temps had Yonton Mehler and I jumping into a car with Kerry Porche headed for Eternity hole on the Tuckasegee River. Yonton started jumping back in a playboat a couple months ago and is starting to show signs of his skills that took him to the World Championships.
A couple of weeks ago I got a chance to get the new Liquidlogic Prototype Playboat out on the Lunch Counter wave in Jackson, Wyoming. The wave was a prime level and perfect for figuring out what this baby can do. After a day and a half of surfing this wave I learned nearly everything I need to know about how this boat preforms.
Even though this years Teva Mountain Games didn’t go the way I had planned, I was still very excited to be in Vail again for one more year of pure excitement!
This year both of my parents came out to watch and cheer me on. I did heaps of runs on Homestake prior to the race on Thursday and I was feeling really good. The water was really low this year so there were loads of rocks everywhere to get stuck on…. or pinned.
Jordan Poffenberger testing out the new Liquidlogic composite prototype playboat on several different features throughout the US: Tariffville, CN, Fayetteville, WV, Buena Vista, CO, Steamboat Springs, CO. The proto is really getting good. Time for a little more work on the wave performance. So stay tuned for updates!
