Surfboard surfing? 4 years ago. paddled out on my son's old NSP fish. My son's instructions were to paddle, then stand up. I had the leash on my front foot. Belly rode the white wash.
6 months later paddled out into the line-up on my very own 8' 6" Ricky Carroll, dropped in on some pretty good surfers, and straight handed it all the way to the beach and felt like the Big Kahuna. I apologize to those I offended in my early days of kookness. The good surfers of CB were kind enough to not slash my tires, or break the windows of my vehicle.
