I went up to the Open on Friday. This is a really cool site to have a tournament. I had a short conversation with Rossi. Really nice guy and very approachable. He said the conditionas were great and that it would not surprise him if someone set a record there. Last year people were saying that the conditions were a little rough yet with the lack of rain this year the lagoon was down 2 feet or so which made the skiing better. However, the water looked pretty nasty. As Joel's tweet indicated, there was a lot of broken glass on the shore. One jumper (Freddy maybe?) got a re-ride because he passed when he spotted a beer bottle floating in his path. Hard to see stuff like that in the dirty water. Joel, lots of good pics!
