Alright. Went back to the park this morning at about 7 am. The only people there were some kids who had camped there the night before, kinda sick. Feeling much less self-conscious, I dropped into the wave that I have now dubbed the “Stanley Steemer [Lane]” It works! I’m amped about it. Closest thing to surfing since the last legitimate wave I have ridden. (September 2019, Hurricane Humberto swell).
It can be ridden like a right-hander, and I can’t wait to get on it some more. I do think my wheels need some more breaking in slash I need to drive off my back foot more. I noticed that they slide much easier on the concrete than on asphalt.
