For the one asking: am I gonna get my head chopped off by a drug cartel? Stay were you are, we dont need crybabies in our waves that may actually chopped your head off, with out the need of cartels.Remember "mi casa es su casa" does not apply for surfing spots.

So used to seeing big waves on the thumb-nail, but so refreshing to see a longboard on that big wave. Really nice pic, top marks.

Is that really a longboard? Looks more like a magic carpet/ minimal than a longboard. Whatever he is riding respect for the power bottom turn.

i could never figure out how these guys paddle out on these big days. turtle rolls- i doubt it. cant duck dive long boards

AndyC's avatar

AndyC Apr 8, 2011 Rating: 0

Longboards paddle out quicker, wait for the lull and get your timing right and paddle like hell. (on a side note you can duckdive modern light progressive longboards fairly easyish with a bit of practice
