How knot to surf.
Beginner mistake #89: When borrowing a board always make sure you have a leash to go with it!
As Gemma & I were waxing our boards I realized my (still on land) kook maneuver……too late to go back & get one & too crap of a surfer to go without. So, I was really excited with my improvised strap-on leash! However, it only took one good take off to go from elation to deflation as I figured out why leashes are short, tubular & plastic! Good grief it was like surfing with the break on…shit…not so clever now missy! What the hell-it was too beautiful and fun to go in, so I made a big tangled mess and wadayaknow, it sort of worked!
