Glad to hear it mate. Really does make the world of difference. Nothing in the world like 20 waves to keep the stoke up!

Agree that this is the case with enough practice, but as your take off requires quite a bit of faith in your muscle memory, I think it's a good idea to look down the line as you take off until you are doing it with 90% consistency. That way you are more familiar with what feels right. Don't think night surfing is a great idea though, but definitely helps with blind take offs on a really windy day.
