If surfing was a video game, and you had to rate your character out of 10 in key skills categories, what would you give yourself?

Bluengreen -
Tube riding - 4 (I can make it in, but it's hard to get out.)
Frontside snaps/cutbacks - 8 (Hi-ya!)
Lip bashing - 5 (hard to get above 10:30)
Airs - 0
Backside snaps - 7
Floaters - 6 (kinda scary)
Paddle Power - 8 (by necessity)
Groveling -1 (I'm grabbing the log)
Charging - 7 (by necessity)
Style - 8 (jazz hands)
Aloha - 7 (so stocked)
Regulating/Hassling - 2 ( weak stink eye)

Not doubting you, but them be some high scores!

Curious how much of a Dunning-Kruger-esque factor is in play - so you'll need to give us an example of what an 8 cutback is, for example.

Rate this one of Kelly in everyday waves.

Haha. Definitely not on a scale of 0 to Kelly. I was thinking more like recreational surfer at the local or even scale of personal satisfaction. For instance, I would rate the rippingest ripper at your local a 10. Make up your own scale or categories.

I didn't intend this to be a pissing match or false modesty contest, but :shrug:
