Thread: What's your style?
Jul 26, 2012, 02:43 AM #32
I would say my style is somewhere like Vanilla Ice meets Conway Twitty. Oh I just realized you ere talking about surfing style not clothing! Surfing I would say somewhere along the lines of Curren (try to be at least) fluid with smooth flowing turns.

Idk, hard to put into words, maybe you guys can help me classify my style? When its knee to waist I usually try to stand in a power stance (think Knoll), with my arms flailing wildy, and my 10' foamy pointed directly to shore. When the surf is more serious (chest - head) so to am I, I paddle out beyond everyone with my 7'6" rhino chaser and paddle for the last wave in a set, though never quite making a drop and always screaming at my board and the almighty that one is at fault for my not making it. And when its epic (OH+) thats when I truly shine, I sit on the beach in my comfy chair with an umbrella, spf90, and catch barrel after barrel in my mind, all the while weaving tales of conquest in foreign lineups on waves that make these look like knee high dribblers to all who will listen. So I would have to say my style is somewhere between Occy and Slater, but with more power and grace.
My surfing is a mix of Fergie and Jesus. If they surfed.....

I think somebody already mentioned it, but I think whatever style I prefer, it all stems from trying to generate more speed, whether thats trimming across the face and getting to the top to build more speed going down the line. I just try to look as graceful as possible when I do that.
For some reason, I think I look a lot better doing that back side than front side. Front side I see an open face lots of "opportunities" so I think I end up doing a bunch of spastic moves. Still need video confirmation, but my wife doesn't have the patience to sit there with a cam and shoot me.
