One fine day the best SUP surfers in the world came to Ocean Beach in San Francisco. When the pros come to town I do my best to go out and watch and learn I can from them. Seeing them on TV or at a break I am unfamiliar with is one thing. Then seeing them doing things I have never seen anyone do at one of my favorite beaches is mind expanding and inspiring. Context seems to be everything as when I am at a place I know very well anything different is easy to spot, it jumps right out at me.
I have had 6 months or so to analyze and practice most of what I saw at the Heavy Water event last year. These skills really came in handy SUP surfing Ocean Beach last winter. I made this video in hopes of sharing and encouraging more SUP surfers to join me out in the lineup. I hope my ability to see and analyze is helpful and expands your surfing.
