Nice Try

My attempt to walk while surfing the mini-Simmons did not end well. At least it provided some fun on a virtually flat day.

Well you made me happy looking at the photo. (I'm sitting in an office right now, don't tell anyone - and seeing you having fun in the sun makes my day).

Thanks, Jamie. The worst is behind us. Now it's a matter of staying sane while waiting for some kind of employment to materialize.

What did you think of the board, micro-waves aside?
Had mine out for two sessions today--a rarity up here. Ridiculous fun!
I hope I spelled 'ridiculous' right...

Hey, HHG! Truthfully, the waves were so small that I couldn't really tell. I was surprised I could even surf it. It's the shortest board in my quiver. I guess I always assumed length necessarily determined how easy a board is to surf. This thing is so stable and solid that I had no problems popping up on it. Frankly, the length is probably a little long for me. Again, I couldn't really tell. You see that wave! Sorry, that's not even a wave. It's a ripple.

Tell me, is there a particular type of wave this board likes?

Hey SS, mine likes anything head high and under, but prefers a flatter-faced wave. Late drops in a steep wave can be challenging. Once it gets above head high, the board develops a mind of its own and wants to skate on that fine line between super fun and totally out of control. The best moments I've had involve swoops on a lined up face--so much drive and speed!
Hope you get some swell soon...like, this weekend.
