Pistol River event

Hi guys,

Just got home from an amazing time in the Gorge and Pistol river. I arrived in the gorge with Muzza on the 10th of June and we had 4 days of amazing sailing at the Hatch before we went to the Pistol event. This year the River in the Gorge was so fast,  my freind and local Bryan Metcalf Perez was saying how he had never seen it so stong. Because it was running so fast this ment as soon as the wind hit 25 knots the swell just kept building. So we had 3 good days with head high waves on the river which was insane.

We headed down to pistol on the Monday and as soon as we arrived we were greeted with 40 knots and head high waves. Not a bad first day really. The next day was the first day of competition which was solid 4.2 weather with chest high waves. Didnt do to well on the first day but came back in the Double to come a respectable 11th place overall. Should hopefully have some picks to come soon . Big thanks to Sam Bittner for the event and cant wait to go back next year.

Pistol River

Hi guys,

Well its just under a week now until i go to the 2nd stop on the AWT Pistol river. Should be a great event with lots of top riders there Including Robby Naish and Josh stone. Also all the gorge crew is going down Including Bryan Metcalf Perez  , Tyson and Whitt Poor , Rob Warwick and Casey Hauser. I went to this event last year and couldn't believe how good conditions we had for the contest. Hopefully we get the same this time. I will try and keep you up to date as much as i can when i am there about all the action from the contest.

Here are a few picks from last years event .
