Small or big waves?
Most people will instantly answer answer B, Big waves. But the challenge is, bigger waves take their commissions too. There is far more paddling involved, the wipe-outs getting more serious and your wave count goes down by a lot. And that is just when everything goes according to plan.
Small waves are a lot of fun. Especially when you are on the right surfboard. Here are two friends taking the same waves towards each other. Do you know who has priority here?
When the waves do get bigger the adrenaline goes up too. Everything you know needs to fall into place now. When the wave comes and you are in position you need to go. The essentials are the same but the stakes feel a lot bigger.
