You are clueless. Now where are your pics and video at?


1. Never have owned a go-pro
2. Only have a few surfing pics given to me by good friends over the years
3. I don't claim to be the "elite" of my sport

But if you insist Bob and it will help shut you up.....Here is a pic of a less than average day where I live. I don't have a kite to help pull me through the turns and still can generate more power than you. Maybe you should hit the gym instead of that pipe to help you build those scrawny legs. Honestly, most kids and girls I surf with have more power and style than you do.

Not even a kiting shot and you are looking at the spray behind you instead of where you are going to ride next... Did you fall after that turn? :rollgrin: Could have done that same wave and funky wacky no style turn on a 10 foot longboard.


Weaksauce. :rollgrin:

I know you can't. All I see from your pics/vids is a bunch of lame floaters. I can't even tell the difference from the whitewash you are riding to the spray coming off your tail. Although I'm sure you are really stoked on those pics/vid that you have posted, I'm here to tell you that's it has some of the lamest riding I've ever seen. From someone that's has claimed to better than most pro's, I was expecting a lot more.

The pics and video I have posted are of top level riding. You are so clueless. Now where are your kiting videos or pics? You have none :nono: and judging by your surfing style must really suck! I dont wanna see pics of spray watching surfers before they fall. :rollgrin: That shit aint impressive.

bob, your leash is backwards, a common beginners mistake.

Not really. I always keep it on that side because I am used to riding waves regular footed. I could switch it but it makes no difference its long enough and hooked to the back of my harness. If your talking about the qr on the c loop that is personal preference and varies leash to leash. When the leash is hooked to back of harness it makes more sense having the release on the cl so it can be pulled straight down.

Silly Thread… You can make all riding look good if you work at it. Frontside, backside, switch, unhooked, strapped, strapless, whatever floats your boat… Most importantly it needs to feel good. Who cares what you look like really?

So start practicing that backhand snap :bye:

The pics of you frontside both directions are so much better than the backside shots. And if it looks better it will feel better too. The backside looks awkward and forced. Thank you, you just proved my point with those pics. :kiff:
