after 5 years of dedication to wake, i've spent the last 2 years living and breathing all things surf. the lessons learned in surfing transcend the sport and i couldnt be more thankful for finding it.
wakeboarding provides so much consistency... and for the most part, its incredibly accessable if you have the funds$$$
surfing teaches patience like nothing else i've ever experienced. you can't buy a wave. and right about now (mid-summer in florida) you wish you could
. but when the stars finally align and mother nature serves up a good swell, there's absolutely nothing like it.
that being said, its no wonder these guys have such an awesome perspective on progressive / technical surfing... they can't hit the same kicker a million times until they stick something... they can't ride behind the same boat anytime they want... so they have a unique appreciation for what can be done with what nature provides
f*ck technicalities... be thankful for every park lap and every boat set...and give respect when some sick sh*t goes down... my $0.02
