Instead of doing all the spins and worrying about this issue, just wear a leash. Am I missing something here? I don't do airs (yet!) so please let me know if leashes get in the way, or are simply no longer cool to wear.
I find a 720 works best. Just make sure to shoot your board directly at the beach 11/16th's the way through the 720. Your board will magically appear back in the lineup juxtaposed so you can calmly swim out to it and immediately catch the next set once you reach it.
Erockstien knows what he is talking about ya'll. One time I did it wrong though and was only 9/16th's through the rotation when I shot my board out, and it opened a wormhole that came out directly in front of Shredmachine bangin a hindu on a 23 foot Jersey slab! Talk about scary!!!
well good on you for not wearing a leash, those things are for pu55ies. Your problem is probably your breakfast selection, maybe even your attire or board selection. Yeah man, go eat some wheaties, buy like 6 or 8 new pairs of trunks, and all of Dane Reynolds pro model boards from CI. Report back.
