Ironically, what's more of a crutch?? Using a ski to increase your wave count instead of hopelessly drifting 3 miles down the beach over the course of an hour to catch 4 waves that you happen to luckily be in position for or throwing in the towel reaching the modest age of 30 and turning to a SUP to increase your wave count because you're hopelessly unskilled and out of shape?

A crutch is a crutch is a crutch

By the way, go look at Brett Barley's sequence on Surfline today. There was definitely some size to it.

I'd bet $ that Brett paddled into that one too.

I don't see the big deal, looks fun to me, 5-6ft and shifty, sounds like a lot of days we get each year

Hey Skeglegs, about a year ago my friend and I got down to Rodanthe just as a strong nor'easter was blowing in...we headed down to Frisco and found 8' freight train barrels. I paddled out, yes I drifted down about 1 mile or more and only caught a couple waves. Later, we watched guys getting rides on ski's into 'em. While I will say it looked like a lot fun, I still don't believe there is a need to use a ski here on the east, except for some rare occasions.
Say what you will, but I'll never have as much respect for someone who uses a ski to ride waves as much as someone who paddles out.
Just my $.02.
