It is always good to get together with other surfers that I know. This morning I met Jim Shang who has been on our Stokemasters, and also Ken who has been with us for over a year now!
The surf started out rather small this morning and I took out the DT4-90, as yesterday I took the Fish-66 and did not do that well. But this morning I caught a lot of good waves.
It was especially challenging on smaller sets when I had to catch and quickly set the rail to keep the ride. Also smaller waves are less forgiving for mistakes. For a few take-offs, I wiped out because I was not dead center on the board. So I need to gently stand up, set up for the initial turn. Again very gently. With a bit of careful planning, I can still enjoy a decent length of ride. I am really suggesting that people should not dismiss small days. There are always challenges to be had.
