Day 10 was to be finals day the last day of competition after a long and lively losers party the night before we wake to remember the squirt event had been moved forward from a respectable 5pm to an unsociable 10am. still feeling the after effects from the previous night we head to the hole.
Squirt boating is seen as the dark side of the sport with so many masters weather it be flat water routines of movements and rotations or the deep water specialists the guys who love to sink. With an eddy lined with glitter and a river almost freezing off we go.
with the best ride counting we had to make it good. with a flatwater routine to build the points and a quick dunk to make a multiplier. unfortunately sinking wasnt easy on the feature meaning a lot came down to the flatwater.
This was only my 2nd time in the boat since damaging my ankle and made the most of it putting down a solid ride including party tricks cartwheels even a cheeky switch wheel it felt good but with no mystery it left me in 4th position just 3 points off of 3rd place and a place on the podium.
the day was then spent building our craft for the cardboard boat race their was lots of creations pirate ships and hens and the paper paddys and their massive penis.
As we had boxes spare i managed to make myself a costume looking a bit like ET! our Giant penis floated without a problem even managing a cheek surf in the hole with no swims we cruised down to the waiting safety crew to pull us in!
We spent the rest of the day watching the finals with pringle unlucky to be beaten in the mens final but Peter laying down ride of the competition 985 points to take the title leaving word cup winner pringle with the silver.
