Day 27 of the 2017 season: Last day of the OBX trip with a surprise ending

Didn't think it was gonna happen today but by 2 it looked surprising doable. So I rigged my 13 Z and took out the Duke board and had some fun. Then it picked up so I got the TT out and for the rest of the day, up until sunset I was on the TT carving, jumping, doing 180 ollies.  As the sun was low on the horizon I jumped over it. So if you were standing on the land it appeared that I jump over the setting sun....LoL...
