Got this new board from a dude on Craigslist. Man its a lot harder to ride, I haven't even been able to catch a wave yet, paddling and floating is kicking my butt right now. The big blue board, you just nudge a little and you got going already. I think I picked up a lot of bad habits from it though. This saturday I went out to Santa Monica, right off Ocean Park, practically wore myself out on the first paddle out. Way too many people out there too, a kid ran into me and two other people just missed. There was actually a pretty good swell Saturday, haha which was bad news for me on a new board. When I paddles I felt like I was just inching along, I think I need to do keep better lateral balance so my paddling will drive me straight instead of side to side and also position myself better lengthwise to keep the board in the right pitch for going forward.
