Most don't and then keep reverting to TT and never give the surfboard a solid go.
but who cares tho? I mean maybe then directional wasn't for the the OP?
Unless of course this is what OP really wants. To me in general if I want to learn something, I take it out on my first session..or practice it in the first session, then go for a casual ride after. I do not want to have sessions where I only struggle. Often I learn something when I am doing something else. Relaxing the mind as it were instead of obsessing about the stuff I should learn. Point in case, duck tacks. Been wanting to do those, never even making it around. Had seen people doing them, until I was out riding waves, and suddenly my mind was: "Oh wait that is how I do it". I nailed it the first try after that.
I think leaving the TT behind is a bad idea..but then again I am allergic to bad sessions
