So I paddled out on my longboard this afternoon, it was about a foot, so I paddled down the beach for a workout, and caught a few ankle slappers. The last wave, on the way back, I took off, did a full drop knee bottom turn, angled down the line, got into deep crouch( and as I was dreaming of Angola) and shot down the line. At the end as I approached the beach I stood up tall and started flapping my arms like a bird. As I got out of the water I saw two tourist ladies actually giving me applause. I was totally embarrassed, but I owe it to this thread for being so painfully aware of how much of a surf dork I am. Can't wait to try some new dork maneuvers. Thanks all for keeping the ideas flowing, so to speak.
