Well, I’m currently in Virginia Beach for the 2013 ECSC event. Within this event there is a pro junior that is in correlation with a 4 star WQS event. For me, I came in high hopes of getting a result in the pro junior and qualifying for the ASP World Junior Championships, however, as of yesterday ago that dream was shattered. And let me tell you, this feeling of losing what you work all year for absolutely sucks. I fell victim to poor wave selection and a slow heat. Throughout this year I have had some close calls and some mistakes, so at this point I’m just trying to learn from them and get better. I guess that’s why they call this the “junior series”, so we can learn from our mistakes so when we are doing the real deal we don’t make the same ones. More so than being mad, I think im more just genuinely sad. I had a good feeling going into that heat and I just couldn’t get it going. But hey, as Michael Jordan once said, “Until you’re broken, you don’t know what you’re made of. It gives you the ability to build yourself all over again, but stronger than ever.” This is what is keeping me psyched and that’s what I plan to do. I’m in the round of 32 for the WQS event so I am here for the rest of the week. GRIND TIME Screen shot 2013-02-15 at 1.51.27 PM
