Excellent day, with perfect winds. Although pretty cloudy...and we had to wait many times for the sunshine to come thru. But at least some hard tricks landed, including these new ones: Back 1080 Boardoff & Kick Flip and Right to Left Overhead Flip.

Good conditions again, well powered on the 18. I need power for the remaining tricks, so very happy about it. Few tricks landed, including a new one, I just thought of yesterday: Barefoot Slide Back 720 ;-)

And finally...this is the last page of tricks to do...we had 6 pages like this when we started to film in Brazil...will be interesting how many of those I can land, since many are just ideas and never have been landed before by anyone...but I can imagine to land it, since I have all technical parts of them. And sorry...you cannot read those tricks...secret! :naughty:

Not much movement these days. Went to Barra Nova to find the flat conditions we hoped for, but hard to film from a distance etc. So we went back to Cumbuco.
Let's hope for some more tricks tomorrow. Only 2 missing to 600...
