Haven't been out on my twenty plus years old ski in ages. It lacks that nose lift, but I'd be keen to see what refinements they've made to the tripple skeg set up . There is noway the older models could perform those radical flick backs , just too stiff. Being supper fit could be handy too.

I was most of the way through before realising they were only using a low brace which seems smart because messing up a high brace would rip your arm off.

I understand it's hard to learn how to roll a waveski.

Doing fine. You should see how tiny a wave it takes to thrash me when landing a kayak. And that's when I was at the peak of my kayaking.

Yeah, I see a lot of potential there to, like, take your last ride right as well. You know, just before you hit the rocks and then spend the rest of your life drooling in a home somewhere for the next X amount of years.{#Stop}

Can never forget how cold it was when the best winter swells came in. Wore full long john with hooded vest over top . Still froze.

Note the suck back over that rock platform, nasty ,nasty.
The place is a breeding ground for White Noahs too.

She's gonna go far.  Such understanding at such an early age. 

I much prefer to watch the women surf in competition just for pure style.  They seem to be more into what the wave is rather than what they can get away with in stunts.

That was a nice trip down memory lane.  I remember when his photos started showing up in Surfer Magazine and some of those pictures, the bus at Greg Noll's shop and the picture of Miklos Dora III aka Mickey "da cat" Dora at Malibu pushing the guy off the board.  IIRC I've seen film of that shot where he catches the guys board under his arm and keeps going.  Dora was one of the "bad boys" in surfing back then and a real life character in the real Gidget story.  I vaguely remember the Takayama pic above.  Hoppy Swarts mentioned in the intro pretty much ran the United States Surfing Association (USSA) before it morphed into the World Surfing Association (WSA).  I still have a couple of membership and competition cards signed by him.  He lived in San Clemente.  He helped me  organize the surfing club at my high school and provided gear for club run contests.  My Mom would drive me down to his house to pick up and return stuff.  He was old back then, but one hell of a nice guy.

I figured you'd probably be familiar with some of those names and locations.  They're cool photos.

TOWERING!!

My wife's 6'0". It's interesting to me how much more common these TOWERING women are since I first met her..ye gods, almost 30 years ago. Used to be that she'd actually get uncomfortable if there was a woman taller than her around. She's since had to adjust.
 
Homeboy there is only about 5'2" it appears though. {#Lol} Just chesked...He was 5' 3" tall.

Yeah, "towering" - I guess by comparison as well.  It seems like  back in the 1960s taller women (at least in show business) weren't as common as nowadays.  There are just a few I can think of from the back then:  Julie Newmar, Juliet Prowse, Suzy Parker, Paula Prentiss...  6'1" is pretty tall though, like Michelle Wie - I think Maria Sharapova is 6'2".
