I competed in the AWT 2013 Santa Cruz event -- my first ever wavesailing competition. It was huge fun, despite the fact that I didn't advance. Here are the results, if you're curious (spoiler alert: keep scrolling to the bottom of the Amateur column to find me): http://americanwindsurfingtour.com/results-4
Having a deadline really focused my training, and as much fun as it is to be a spectator, it's even more fun to participate. I was inspired by all the other windsurfers to keep improving for next year.
