    Riding the unbroken

    Last week I was out in some small poor surf. I had spent about two hours and only got 2 waves....guess I just needed to be in the water. But something EPIC happened......I caught and rode a wave that didn't break. I could hardly believe it.....that's the first time I have ever done that. It was beautiful, I turned left, I turned right and I rode the nose all the way in

    Anyone else have that experience? Did it evoke a stoke in you? Or is that just an average day for a better surfer than myself?

    By "a wave that didn't break" you mean that it actually provided a face to ride on, right? As opposed to just folding over into mush and white water? If so, yes that is the utter source of stoke. Congrats

    Yes.....all face, no white water.

    And thanks for the wave porn! I'm gonna go rub wax on my board and think about it.

    So you've set up a poll to find out if anybody on here has ever surfed an actual wave?

    Classic.

    Loosen your jock strap......the poll is of a humorous nature.

    And I am talking about a wave that didn't break.....at all! It just rolled in, without rolling over.

    I once surfed Waikiki on a big longboard and every single wave for the entire 2-3 hours was just a 2 foot rolling unbroken face...go left for a while...go right for a while...go straight for a while...look at Diamond Head for a while.

    It didnt particularly "evoke a stoke" in me. It did evoke an irritation that my wife had persuaded me to leave the North Shore where there had been actual good waves (of the breaking kind). The view of Diamond Head was nice but would have been better looking out of a barrel.
