Re: Where did you surf today ?

actually Iggs, that was nowhere near as bad as I thought it would be.

I reckon old mate in the red shirt would surf like Godsave.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I agree with you on the dichotomy but I'm not sure you've applied it correctly. From my vantage it's the newbies/adult learners or sub-adult learners who are most obsessed with "improvement" and the most susceptible to the pro surfing model of imitation. The other way of thinking, expressed by Derek...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

One of the 15 year old kids I surf with helped drag that dead rockfisho in. he was foaming at the mouth when they found him- just alive- that kid had to keep diving down and dragging him up. I spoke to his Mum and asked how he was going and she said he was pretty shaken up about it. I love the peopl...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I probably would ride a mal a lot more in Wales. Be way more fun sliding those baby food peelers on a log rather than trying to do a turn, surely? But here, if I'm surfing the Pass I tend to ride a mal or a 6'0" MF foamy. Otherwise, still looking to get barrelled cuz. Improving, I think so. The hard...

Your board reviews on Beachgrit seem to be characterised by large periods of struggle.

More of a journey than a struggle. Latest review the board came a lot easier.

Lot of learning goes on when you are trying to figure something out.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

How is that incompatible with the above statement? Just seems a bit incongruous with the timeline. You've been on the same board for 3-4years but your surfing is improving because you are riding better boards? Doesn't seem like a salient factor. Steve, you of course know of Geoff McCoys belief that...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

both. You can make big leaps forwards with equipment changes....usually the ones you didn't expect would work for you. You can also go backwards. But I would say changing up sleds is one of the few ways you can shake up a skill set. I've been cycling through a two board quiver the last few weeks : a...
