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. I however am way off the back end. It was definitely a case of the old dog trying to learn new tricks. Fortunately I don't think anyone was taking pictures while I was paddling but I did get a few of Yonton looking good in Big Orange! The session was enough to get me stoked to get back in the shaping room with the playboat model. A little more time and I may be able to hit that Phonix Monkey. Proto #5 in time for team trials maybe!
