Westwater trips are always a good time. It marks the beginning of spring for me. Even though it is snowing as I am writing this. Me and Sage rolled out of c-dale friday evening where we met the rest of our crew at the put in. We had a great group. We slept(it was really cold), and then woke to a beautiful sunny day. We ran shuttle, and were anxious to get on the water in order to get some surfin in at LIL D. We rolled into our camp at lower LIL D around 2, at a dank lunch thanks to Ted, and then surfed till around 5. The wave was at a decent level, blunts were possible, which was great for an early season wave. We had six new LL Biscuits to test out, and test them we did. The production version is quite different than the prototype that I had been paddling. There is less bow rocker, and less stern rocker, the spin disc is removed. The stern is a bit longer, and it has a little bit more volume. This made the boat much faster which I was very happy with. It surfs great, easy to control, big bounces, spins easily. I was super stoked with how it performed.
