OK -- this is Lame but here goes :
I am learning to ride the surfboard ; i can do a back-roll on it, and can get
turned around to tow-side. When i am heal-side and on a broad-reach, i look
at my heading by lining up a distant object. If i Try to go Tow-side on that same line ---
I CAN'T !!
SO i drop in the water and reverse the board on my feet, then Hull-Ass across the lake
heal-side again, in an attempt to stay away from Tow-side.
I don't want to keep doing this ; i really need to figure out WHY i can't get as efficient
with my line when i'm on my Tow-side ?
Things are different riding with prosthetic ; i must get analytical about each detail. If you guys
could look at how Ya bend your knees and turn your feet while riding tow-side, it would
be greatly appreciated !!
Also look at how the water is cavitated off your fins while riding tow-side Vs Heal-side, is there
a difference ? Since i can't feel my feet, i look at my fin's cavitation to see if the board is
properly aligned with the direction of travel. I do this about as much as i use my rear-view
mirrors in traffic, every 5-8 seconds !!
My Only option to ride a surfboard is : "Strapped" , because of the fake legs ; and i'm
seriously Glad i can even do That !!
Thanks : Bille
Ps : I'm getting Seriously addicted to the surfboard ; last Sunday the TT got quite
lonely sitting on the beach while i rode the surfboard for almost three hours !!
