Was thinking bout dis tread a bunch lately. Have had some real good rides in the last month that I can barely remember afterwards and having to really focus and go back in my head to replay the tape. Not too worried about that as long as I can keep getting the good rides! Hopefully get some this morning. Serious temp rises and drops these days up in NE. Just need the winds to calm.

Ditto. Was thinking about that very thing earlier this week during a morning sesh. Happens to me all the time unless something out of the ordinary happens - even right after I'm padding back out from a ride in. Had thought it was age related.

This is an awesome thread. There are three categories of wave memory for me:
1. Career Waves - Waves where if I controlled the universe I couldn't have created better timing, perfect sections, and made all the right moves. I remember these vividly for about 60 days, then I start to embellish the best parts and forget the details. These great rides dissolve and the hightlights go into "Career Moves".
2. Career Moves - Average rides with a holy-crap-did-i-just-pull-that-off move thrown in, or highlights from Career Waves. I remember the body mechanics as well as the visual aesthetics.
3. Natural Epics - There are a handful of "screen shots" and freeze frames that I will never forget, even though the ride itself was not necessarily the best. A deep bottom turn when the bottom sucked out and a belly high wave looked a hypnotic combination of deep blue and frothy, and towered above me, and time froze. I botched the actual ride, missed all the good parts, etc., but man I remember that steep, multicolored wall. And there is no sound in the moment. I TOOK TONS OF LSD IN THE 90S SO.......
You know when you've spent enough time in the water you'll grow out of being so analytical about how your ride was performance wise...your just having fun things be flowing naturally...that's when real stoke happenz dudez...

Yes, and it's to do with the part of the brain which is being used.
