  • His description of not moving the surfboard reminds me of something I see sometimes, people "petting the water".
    They stroke the water {very short stroke} with their hand actually arced in the wrong direction so that it doesn't push against it, more like you would pet and animal's back. I don't understand how anyone would think that does anything, but logic and understanding of the most basic physics/mechanics is not a big thing these days it seems.   

    thanks to you, i always think "stop petting the cat!" different from milking kittens - a different surfing dynamic. how was that chick the other day when you were surfing with us during the bertha swell? that was the best cat petting ever!!!

  • So, MrMorrill logged on for all of 9 minutes, asked a question and left, never to be seen again or even see the responses to his question. Obviously the guy can't swim for brown trout if he can't move a surfboard and doesn't know why.
    It was nice of everyone to actually provide considerate responses as well as some humorous stuff. Oh well. Summer {Surf Season} is almost over.  ::) [size=78%]  [/size]

    I spent more time on my answer to him than he spent logged in.  lesson learned.

    Hahaha, yeah that was why the waves were so soft sometimes, she was soothing the Ocean with her caresses!

    yeah, it's an odd phenomenon that happens a few times a Summer it seems.
