How's that wave. Board looks loose with stacks of lift. Nice riding.
That's my next one. I had a 6'3 - but too much foam for my short a**.

Minor meltdowns over Alex Knost surfing old school on a bonzer in Kelly’s paddle puddle.

“It’s a hard wave to surf because you’re reacting to a non-visible section, it’s under you, not in front of you. ” Alex Knost.

yeah one thing is you can't see changes in the wave shape, the water is murky and there's no "draw" off the base so no sign of approaching barrels etc, so I was kind of improvising on that one. it takes a few waves to get the timing in your head so you can figure out where to fade and draw a line up into the barrel from behind - that's the best line.

I liked it. Moving around like that takes skill and I thought it looked pretty stylish.

How do people get upset by that?
Even if it's not your cup a tea, who gives a fcuk? Nothing to bloody cry about.
I enjoyed it, anyway.

I had my MLV out at green island yesterday and in smallish point waves - lots of fun.
