both of those vids are great. love watching alex knost surfing anything, but it's especially cool to see what he can do with crap waves.
same thing with the first video, only better, because those guys are riding little hollow snapping beach-break type surf where you gotta move fast or else. i especially like seeing the goofy foot stand up in a way forward position where it only takes one step to get toes over. i've done that a few times, it feels good, getting up there so fast.
as to the fly away kick out at the end -- i've got a friend that can do that because he's riding super-short, super-light SUPs. and he can get some serious (if dangerous) height. but on a fat and long and thick SUP like my Jimmy, I dunno. Guess it can be done and i've tried it lots with no success. I guess the trick would be to start to exit while you've still got a ton of speed.
my preferred kickout right now, and i'm sure it's as ugly as all the rest, is to pivot out and drop right to my knees, stick the paddle b/ my legs, and start hand paddling back to the line up. probably put some big dents in my board but the JLs are tough as nails, so I'm going to keep doing it. anyway, it feels better than just falling off into the soup.
