Sucked in and spit out

Wednesday of last week marks my first ride into and out of the tube. I was officially in the green room, and moving fast, so fast that I didn't take enough the time to appreciate those few seconds as I cruised into the section of wave that transformed into a vertical maelstrom about 6' high. It was so incredible, and so fast, and by far one of the longest lefts I have ever ridden. In the slot, feeling the sensation of being surrounded and spit out of a tunnel of water, that was enough to make me scream with excitement at the top of my lungs at the end of this magic ride.

I was screaming like a fool for at least a couple of minutes as I sealed in the experience... what a simple joy.
