    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?

    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.

    ummmm if you never rode a wave with an open face before did you just head straight to the beach on closeouts? Either way cruising a nice open face wave and feeling the glide is soooo fun!!!

    It was small....very small....maybe 1.5 to 2 feet.....held up by off shore winds. I'm sure it broke once it made the last sandbar, but I caught it out far and it lost power and form just before the beach, in the tench....when I went for it, I thought it would break at some point, and just couldn't believe that it didn't AND I was riding it. I rode it both left and right.....practiced turning.....was completely beside myself and stoked. I had heard it was possible (longboarding) but didn't know I could do it.

    I hope that clears things up for everyone.
