  • Rockbum was logging with more style yesterday than guys who've been riding logs for lo-these many years.

    He's knocked at least two "Top Three's" out of the box.


    PS:

    Longboarders should note that Dowd's presence in the Box with a longboard should not be taken as a lift on the moritorium on longboards in the box. The rule still holds "NO LOGS IN THE BOX!" Mario, your Channin is Box-worthy.
    So heavy you can't even pick it up.

  • Have you ever actually paddled out a longboard through 7 foot NY/NJ beachbreak (usually when its cold)?  It sounds like you haven't, but you just may be much more experienced than I am.  It is much easier catching any wave with more foam under your feet but the paddle out requires some serious physical power and mental toughness and keeping the nose up requires pure skill when it's big, powerful, and steep. That's why I almost always toss the battle of the longboard when it's big for a 5'11" or if it's actually really big, a narrow 6'6" - both are a hell of a lot easier physically than a longboard in big waves. I almost never see other local guys out with a longboard when its 7 feet and up (usually coffee clatch time on the boardwalk for shortboarders too when its cold and the sweep is intense  ;D).  Now if you are not talking about local (with no real rip current to help) beach break and are talking some easier channel paddle out or a no  paddle out = motor out, then you may have a point.  Just curious what your experience was on a bigger day.

  • here's some things to try to make it less easy...hang fives, hang tens, parallel stance, parallel drop-ins, controlled slide-slips ala Dora, dropping in bottom turning and surfing an entire wave parallel stance ankles locked together without moving your feet at all for the entire wave keeping it smooth with style, right-go-left drop-ins, drop-knee cutbacks, coffin rides in the curl, head dips, spinners, tail stalls, 10 foot plus boards, placing small dogs girls or babies on the nose...have fun
