The other end...
I was on the fence about selling this Frye Eagle. Saturday session at local beachbreak resolved the issue. Eleven feet, two inches, g l i d e. I'm into different feelings in the water. Usually this manifests in the sub log range. This board, though, this board is something of an exception. The other end of the spectrum, but somehow similar to some of the shorter toys. Trim, baby trim.
Sit literally 25 feet outside of the longboards. Spot your wave and paddle. Feel the glide. slide to your feet. Deep trimming turn. Set your line. On your feet by the time you reach the "lineup". Sections come and go, and go, and go. People either love you or hate you. Don't be greedy, let five set waves pass before taking your next.
Swung by Skip's shop today, introduced myself and inquired about the correct fin. It's fun to share stoke with a man who has been gifted with bringing others so much stoke.
