Actually I get huge thrills (in a good way) watching shortboarders too... such an atheletic endeavour!
They look like they are having such an intense and energetic fun time just turning, chopping, hitting lip, cool quick turns... you know. It's a lot of fun to watch.
Their rides seem so short tho compared to longboarding. Maybe that's why it's called shortboarding?!
Longboarders have a much longer sweeter ride??
Sorry to get seedy but I wonder if there may be a correlation between your surf style preference and your 'bedtime sports hour antics' as well?
Like, do you enjoy the sweet long haul or just a bit of wham bam? Or maybe like Taylor Jensen and other progressive style surfers you like a bit of both? Best of both worlds! Isn't that just greedy??
Ok maybe I should just let that one go.
I'm so sorry you guys. Delete at will.
