In my head...
« on: March 08, 2019, 05:13:33 PM »
In my head, I'm bending my knees. getting low while I pump high so I can turn mightily to the toe side.



And in my head, my back foot is on the spine of the board, Directly over the mast.


Thanks to Chris Pagdilao for the drone shots demonstrating that what's in my head might not be exactly what's going on.

Looks alot nicer than East Coast , and yeah very nice shots.... but that leading edge nose is pushing up water?
I haven't seen that elsewhere, but it' s on both shots....

Can always bend the knees later...at least you are center line

Very nice! If I do that in my head, I probably won't be awake in the actual photo.

Looking good PB!

Visualization can be a very powerful tool.  I'm sure we have all heard stories about the Vietnam POW that visualized his golf game while held captive and found upon return, his game had actually improved.

Looking great.  But . . . you know the solution - Back Foot Strap.

It's like putting a seat belt on in a race car.  No ambiguity.  Ready to ROCK!

It seems to be an M200 effect. Makes a wicked boil with my weight when it gets near the surface. Doesn't seem to affect much but I'm focusing on using the Iwa at the times I previously used the M200. It's faster and I can turn it better. I used it today. I get a little out of control with it sometimes, but I think that's part of turning hard.

Whoa! Hell yeah dude.
You're like 70....look at that shit.
Who cares what's in your head.
In your head could you even imagine when you were 60 that when you were 70 you would be riding up in the air on some magic thing with some little helicopter floating around near you taking pictures at all?
Looks fun as hell.
Go man, go!
