Wondering what is a learning curve and where do you fall on this thing?

Also how many liters are you riding these days?

These markers you use are to be used to determine what validity your judgements have. Thanks in advance.

I'm not making the complaints this person is making or cracking wise about coaching an adult noob into competitive surfing. . I know where I am in the lineup and I'm just happy to be there and to get what I can get. As do most surfers. She's not being criticized for being a kook, she's being criticized for being clueless. And wrong.

For instance, i wouldn't even paddle a "shortboard" out in longboard conditions and then complain about being unable to get a wave from the longboarders. That's as clueless as it gets. I wouldn't pop up in Santa Cruz and complain about not getting a wave in a competitive lineup filled with locals who understand that wave way better than I ever will.

I wonder what percent is racism and what percent Rhonda told her is racism?

I also find it interesting that the aggression is felt even before she enters the water.

Funny how up until shaping machines came about # of liters was irrelevant.

This is the only performance-style board I own at this point, and it's more of an alt-design. 6.2 x 20, about 37L. Then again, I'm over 60 so I've obviously got much smaller boards in my history. Even so, there's no way either of those women are getting a wave on a board this size.



And like I said, I'd never even open my mouth about being unable to compete for waves because I know better. Most surfers know better.

So being unable to catch 2 ft waves on a midlength is Olympic qualifying?

This is a bad day for the news media. Lets not kid ourselves, Toobin said on CNN. The larger message that a lot of people are going to take from this story is that the news media are a bunch of leftist liars who are dying to get the president, and theyre willing to lie to do it.

SoCal HPSB. around 32-34
And if someone would explain what this objective learning curve is I might be able to give some made up %tile.
But remember We are not competing here.

I handshape. And make my own fins. So I probably look at boards a bit differently than you do. Sue me.

Microaggression gimme a break. Surfing is filled with tons of regular sized aggressions toward all people. This shit is just a term people use to validate their own cognitive distortions.
