Despite also being the head judge of the event, Scott managed to sneak away for his heats and ride some bombs.
On the last day of the event, Scott has this to say: “Well yesterday was a bit of a treat for the Windsurfing Western Australia ‘maggot creek’ classic which certainly lived up to its name. Managed to walk away with the chocolates which was also a pleasant surprise. This was def a highlight moment of the day though as I can remember straightening out being a tad mesmerised with what I was looking at. Huge thanks to Ian Pott who made the whole event stay alive overcoming numerous obstacles. And super stoked on the grommet froth getting to go out late in the day.“
