Drop and Pop
« on: April 18, 2019, 08:02:55 AM »
Short, fast, steep bowling wave on the east side of Okinawa (same tiny spot as last week on the race board). Steep drop, especially when it gets overhead, then empties into a channel where the wave goes flat, and you can give it a little pop with a small snap or cutback. Sets this day were double overhead on the face, but unmakable as the inside section would close out (not enough water). So a few of these are just a couple of feet overhead. Had a serious case of spaghetti-legs today...just one of those off days. Super fun, though. Hooking up with my buddy Carl (prone surfer who paddles over the wave in front of me), who I haven't seen in 20 years. Also met up with a Japanese guy I was a team rider with for a local brand...also about 20 years ago...LOL.  Three of us on the peak having a blast.

Nice sup surfing some fast moving large waves. And I might add, beautiful colored water too.
