when you start, paddling out is hard, then you get out and realise actually catching the waves is the hard part. then you get the hang of that but cant take off consistantly. then you start doing manouvers and they seem like the hardest thing... etc.
ask someone on the wct and theyll probably tell you landing forward loop airs or getting deep in the tube at pipeline without dying are the hardest things, its all relative.

That way it becomes no big deal when you do come off and you'll be prepared to take any (most) drops.

Have you taken that red tape off your drawers?
