Nice on Tardy, good to see you still rippin it apart. Still in lock down here but luckily no swell this week anyway so it's not killing me too much.

Oh man - how good's that!!!
Crystal clear water, good clean waves on a Wednesday arvo and Tardy schralping a few cutties.
That second last pic is killer - you can actually see the jets of water throwing from the outline of the Placid.
Sick Tardz!

Yeah Tardy, Love it!

Dude, you have motivated me to get a smaller board, so I can reach the stomper!

I just got an 8'7 Placid that looks EXACTLY like yours
Got to surf it for a few hours without to much effort
My brand new SoloShot3 was set up on the beach, but I left the SD card in my computer.... doh!
Not on the stomper yet... but I will be! hopefully.

Keep posting inspiration!

At 103 kg my feet are wet on the Placid 8'7 x 31.5 at 225 liters... but it was easy in the waves.

easy Creek ..floats ya no problemo.or course you can ride this board in good conditions ....the width is really handy on this board ..I go out in some nasty stuff ..but then you climb up the tail and its like a little board ..its a cool little board ..I can say little cause I'm 97 kgs ,I might post a video later ..had 3 days of great little waves ..I think you meant 125 litres ..just in cause anyone gets confused ..its my happy number .

Very cool shot of the rip motor, your legs. How did you get the angle?

Not sure if I looked down at my feet that I could keep the show upright, probably eat it. But inspired by your ripping views and some smaller wave days to get loose in, I seemed to have made some sort of breakthrough with the stomp pad foot placement. Many of us are around the same age and came up from single and twin fin era. We tend to surf with our feet fairly close together. And as we progressed onto thrusters we our front foot would retreat to the rear half of the board, but our rear foot though back there, was not on the stomp pad.
My first sup I could get loose and vertical on was a 9x28 PSH. The width was a drawback for paddling balance and the board and the vertical sup progression got shelved. The last few years while transitioning to the newer generation of shortboard sups, being out in crowds led to a high percentage style surfing, not much risky vert. So some time on the skateboard carving off some steep transitions and a couple of empty chest high days has yielded some off the tail and off the top carving that brings back memories of a time long ago.

Its more the go pro ,i face it pointing down ,but i only look back on the turn ,but i feel it s easier to flick around on the stomper ..
less board in the water ,but slightly wider stance to push the nose down for forward motion ,always pumping ,and gathering speed for the next turn .my fist surfboard was a 6 foot single fin ,then a G&S twin fin ,years ago ..

Yea, that slightly wider stance is where I fight my muscle memory. So as I finally found the keys too my acid, I took off on one nice steep section and was just loving the crazy looseness off the bottom, top, bottom. but found it a tad too loose and realized though the back foot was perfect, my front foot was back there too. The feet about a foot apart. What I realize now is also the same distance apart on the skateboard.

Being short, this is why I love short boards: I have a hard time otherwise positioning my feet wide apart enough...

And, I'm constantly moving my feet around the board - whether it's shuffling my back (right) foot back, or sliding my front foot forwards.
