- This is not a sprint race; it’s the beginning of a 22 mile channel crossing, but everyone in it looks like they’re out for blood. Seriously out for blood.
- The Redondo Rocket trading paint (“ramming speed!”).
- DJ looking like she could can-opener your head off with her arm (note: she can).
- Aussie traveling over to just to make you look bad by making it look easy (nice new board too!).
- Up-and-comers who will, no doubt, breathe down your neck in 3…2…1…
- Max checking out for what will be an inspired paddle — hell, the guy isn’t even the picture!
Everyone…feet up, getting after it, and having a good time. I don’t need a ‘motivational’ poster or video; I have these folks.
