Hey guys

Just landed home yesterday and cant believe how much rain you guys have all had.
We had an absolute ball at callaway gardens! The lake was amazing to kneeboard on.
Leigh ward managed to finish in 4th and myself (marc gray) managed 6th.
was a very tough battle with the top 20 and the Australians were glad to come away with 4th and 6th in the world considering it was the first time we had competed in this format.

here is a link to some of the pictures taken. hoping to get another one up as soon as the professional photographer put the photos up on line.

Yeah I was very high off the double up got a little scarred but looked sick and thats all that matters!

Not a lot of those guys kneeboard any more. But one of the guys in the videos was there and he was unbelievable to watch. just so smooth and he hardly ever fell.
