Almost Famous


Somebody just let me know that I'm on the Mandala website, riding my 2+1. I went over and sure enough, there I was, amongst such surf luminaries as Alex Knost, Joe Curren, Tyler Warren, Dan Malloy, and the Man(i) himself. The anonymous commenter who informed me that my 15-minutes was ticking also pointed out that I need to toe-in my back foot. I'm definitely rocking the duck-foot stance there... Which reminds me that I should send Manny a picture riding the RPQ where I have ever-so-slightly better style.

I'm not worthy. Seriously. But it's pretty cool.

Ach! Your knees are bent and hands are down as you set up a pump or two before making a turn. Fine style from these cheap seats. Toe in or flat for big bottom turns or while in a dry stand-up barrel; otherwise don't let the mavens get you down, bud.

If you can, look at some footage of Bill Hamilton during the long-to-short board transition era and tell me that he or his generation didn't have style. Nary a toe in amongst them!
