Default How was everyone's summer?

Mine was so-so, seemed like it rained most weekends, and the one's it didn't I had boat problems. I probably only pulled around 15 WB sets this summer compared to pulling that many in a weekend previous years. I did land a lot of lucrative contracts for my business this year, which is awesome considering I almost lost everything last year....at least I will get to go do some big mountain riding this winter.

So how every one else's summer?

Got engaged as well!

Love Jamaica! Negril is one of the best places on the planet.

Were in Jamaica for a week. Pretty sweet. We were in Negril for the week which was awesome but not really the real Jamaica. Would like to go back again and see the country properly. We did a lot of diving which had local guides. Other than talking to those guys we didnt get to speak to the locals that often.

too fucking long.

me and my brother did decide to build a little backyard setup, and we haven't severely injured ourselves yet, so I suppose it's going good.

I don't know what even happened to my summer it started out great with a few MTB rides and I was really hoping to get back "in" to that sport riding regularly, etc. but for some reason haven't been back on the bike since early July I think... I guess mine was busy, had a lot of shit booking up my weekends, some family stuff, a few short vacations, etc., and quite busy with work, too.

And here it's fall already...

It seems like the summer was great. Got a lot of wakeboarding in. Quit my day job to start other adventures, and still hope to get to a cable park or two before the snow falls. I can't believe that I helped my buddy take his docks and boat lift out last night. Sucks because it went way to fast. Seems like life isn't going to slow down so I guess we will have to snowboard tomorrow!!! Pumped!!!

Probably one of the best summers ever. Got a kick ass job offer so I moved away from a state I dare not speak the name of and living right next to the mountains. Work was busy all summer with most of my weekends taken up but that just means more more for snow trips later this year. I am truly blessed at how things turned out this summer.
