As many people know, I pride myself in riding all types of boards. I think riding a number of different types of boards makes you a better all around wave rider. If nothing else, for me, it makes me have more fun in the water. Certain boards are great in certain waves and I am at a point with my wave riding that I know which vehicle I will have the most fun on. Typically, a lot of guys are only interested in one wave riding craft, but Id recommend trying a few different boards and see if it doesnt help your one main focus. Even watch guys that are riding different boards. Here is one of my buddy’s that I am learning from… Great all around wave rider and professional skimboarder Jason Wilson. That is my little tip for the day! Have fun and get in the water!
