Bluewater Editor Tim Simpson sent me some beautiful shots he took of KEKOA on the troll during last year’s 50th Anniversary Comp. This one made me laugh as is pretty typical of a day on KEKOA. Col & Kylie waiting patiently for a bite, on the back deck poised for action. Ben busy rigging. And me mumbling something in Luke’s direction while he leans down to ask “What?!?”. Yep, pretty typical :-)
