that's what i was waiting for, OTTER! it seemed a bit odd to me why i need these things on a longboard. honestly, i've been riding single fin for a long time now, and when i decided to throw the side's in there, everything got poopy.
with the bites in i felt like my board was trying to think for
me. i didn't like the feeling of being half way into a turn 2 seconds after i pop'd up. it seemed like i was constantly fighting with my board, which took my concentration and focus off the goal...riding the wave.
i don't know. if i'm way off, please, someone put me in my place.
