Re: General snow stuff

The boards and stance are bidirectional.

If you watch closely though they don't often turn or change edge while riding switch, just aim at the next takeoff point with a fairly flat board.

Powder riding is harder switch, for sure.

Re: Kelly's wave.

The inside of his garage. Nick what was the best question you asked/most surprising answer? I asked Noah Grimmett, who is basically the overseer of the project and has been with it the whole time, if there was a moment he thought the pool would never happen, and he said yes.

Forgot to post an update. After a couple of days of the kids being incredibly frustrated with going from being able to stand on a 9'0" to totally kooking on the shortboards, the kids figured out how to stand up within about 3 hours, and within a week were paddling into broken waves and riding to the...

Hanging your feet in the water like a rudder just as the wave picks you up makes you stall and go down the face with the nose raised.

I can think of three adjacent beaches on the mid north coast that offer radically different wave setups, with three distinct sand types.
That's entirely expected.
The sand on each beach is a result of the recent wave climate, winnowing and energy dissipation.

Re: Kelly's wave.

Nick you answered the most common questions, but what was the best question you've been asked about the surf ranch?

Roughly 5 minutes between waves does my head in. That kills almost all commercial applications.

My 3/2 was $220 from overseas, delivered.
tell me more. Got a link? I'm in the market for a new one. Lace up, if possible. These 'zips' are too complicated
