Dropping knee

Yesterday was small and onshore, with theĀ  bigger waves closing out, but I went anyway cause forecast for the weekend looks flat / windy.

Thankfully now that I have a longboard, I was able to get some rides on a mix of whitewash and face. I worked on backside turns (always a problem for me) and managed to make some snappy ones. I think I cracked the code, needed more bend in my back knee.

I also dropped back knee on some weaker waves to extend the ride. Great exercise! I hope to be able to do snappy drop-knee cutbacks in the future like this guy.
