Dense and intense and 2 hour after-work session fueled by a crunchy peanut butter and strawberry jam on rye. Wasn't sure how that was going to taste, but it worked. Made my first DW3 in the straps on both tacks, then made a bunch more. I finally get this move! It's all about the straight front arm, the initially wide turn, the steady toe pressure, the lay down, then just throw the rig way forward and maybe sink the tail a bit to get the board right round. Easy peasy. Got stuck on one though, crashed and had both feet in the straps with the board upside down, one hand still on the boom, face down in the water. Took advantage of the situation by pretending I was floating in the air (instead of the water) doing a super-tweaked one handed table top ala Jason Palokow. PSB: Broken Halo IPA PSG: Frozen Pizza
