Strange New Feelings

Postby Foul Pete » Mon Jun 24, 2024 9:55 am

Had a surprising couple of days with some non-existent swell actually producing some super fun grovelers... Tried out a 9'10" Pig that was 'gifted' to me and immediately gave it a way. I'll stick to my over-volumed 5'10 baked bean thanks... found some great ice cream in nehalem, celebrated Go Skate Day in BC, PC (missed LC alas) and,

then i came back to the city to surf the SW hills with some new skills... stoke level 11

Rarely is it ever completely flat around here. If its glassy small kine, and you know where to look, and have the right board....... waves can be found away from the herds of summer sheep. Its the wind that faks us mostly in the summer, but not telling you anything you don't already know.

Image not coming through. Did you get a surf skate?

Yeah, in the true sense of the phrase.

The inspo was Cliff Coleman in the Berkley hills when urethane first came on the scene... Hockey pucks melted to gardening gloves...

You mean your not wiggling around like Noel Salas in suburban TX neighborhoods slashing driveways :lol:

Future Primitive, that was a good part and still is. Bomb a fun hill on the way to work, but on my bike. Gets me amped.

Like I'm taking a shite while defending myself from invisible bees?

Maybe.... maybe....

Hard to self-film this stuff but this was what I was getting at,

Looking forward to dialing in linking some backside and frontside together... little scary to learn but once you commit its not that hard... been on my bucket list for awhile...
