Nice upstream brace in that hole until you started filling up, Harry. Do you have a downstream cross brace in that situation? It's easier to pivot the ME out of the side surf with a cross brace blending into a cross draw, which can end you up in a backwards surf.
Also glad to see you are still buying more crime scene tape than the FBI.
as a boy scout i thought the jay stroke was bitch. so have no idea what any strokes are. my buddies all do the fancy paddle over the other side just befor they swim. did you start the post way back on another site about reflective tape on the paddles? http://youtu.be/8rE23VLwDOw
