Enquentro Session

January, 2014   //   by Chase Hasch   

Lately I have been training really hard for the upcoming year. I have been trying to get some diversity in my riding so, I have been riding at different spots instead of always riding flat water. Yesterday Nico Suriel and I went to the surf beach Enquentro in search of a kicker session. Normally then I ride kickers I’m in Cabarete bay and they really aren’t that clean and unless I’m super powered its hard to get enough speed to do anything big.

(Serious concentration for that KGB – tongue out and everything

I really liked hitting clean kickers for a change but the impact surprised me as well as how much slack I got from all my tricks especially my S-passes. I tried a couple toeside tricks and I landed a 540 and tried a couple crow mobes but once the wind picked up more I was to powered to try any more.

The other day I landed a couple KGBs and I was stoked to try them in the waves. I landed a couple back to blinds that were huge but when I tried to land heel side I got way to much slack in my lines and crashed from the impact. I had a really good time showing off in front on the crowd that collected on the beach so I started doing more tricks coming in to the beach. I was working on nose grabs I got a couple doing 313s but I’m hoping that I’ll get them with my NISs today in the flat water. I have gotten pretty good at my late mobes and they’re such a fun trick that I ended up doing quite a few on them. I was trying to land 315s I only landed one but, it was pretty sloppy.

I had a really good time riding at Enquentro and I’ll be sure to start riding there more.
