That’s some serious sailing.

Pick the roller you're going to surf, place yourself BEHIND the the first or second wave of the set. Instead of looking behind, the secret is to look forward and focus more on following the leading wave. Once your trimmed correctly you'll feel like you being PULLED along, not pushed from behind.
There is constant adjustment of trim, "A bit back-no forward-too far- back a bit- forward, DAMN am I still on this glide!? no I'm losing it, it's gone" and you'll settle back down and watch the rollers cruise on.
Dale and Keith are both speed demons, but I feel pretty fast surfing while standing in Liberty's footwell. She feels like a massive Standup Paddle board sometimes. Crazy to think that my paddleboard is two feet longer than Liberty!
