Thanks for the advice everyone. looking forward to getting out in the surf
I like you want to ride with straps
instead of "following the hords" and mania
I've seen so many "newbees" in waves who think it is the "only" right thing to do - where real life is just opposite mostly, only a few fanatics does it around here, and only in some conditions - the rest, also the best and most experienced, ride strapped
Of course talking about our spots here - it might be VERY different at other spots I know.
Still - I like you dont just follow
Respect to you for that
