I made the 4 out of 4 finals from the week, single and double, ski relay and taplin relay. Got 3 5ths and an 8th in the taplin. Single ski final was a blunder of a race for me, had a shocking start, last of the beach after missing my jump in, decided not to chase and let the field go and sneak out to the right looking for clean water. Paid off after popping a few waves cleanly and finding some flat water to the cans and getting there in fourth close to the medals. I misjudged a wave coming and let of a bit power and unfortunately the wave just slid from underneath me and there goes the medals. Caugth the next wave with 5 other guys and got pipped at the line for fourth.
