Website looks great, nice work. I actually took a quick 1 day class in CR with the Paddlewoo guys, and one of the things they mentioned was to stay pumping through the highline of the wave and then load up for a slash. I was having a tendency of going down to the trough of the wave and then back up multiple times on a wave, and losing a lot of speed. Thanks for the videos, keep them coming.

kind of like bottom/top turns on a small wave? I guess you turning continuously on the steep part of the wave rather than the flat; but the motion is similar.

Reuben, why do you need to moderate if we’re all pro subscribers? Seems like a pretty moderated group already.

and it seems that you don’t switch your foot position.

I was just observing how your feet don’t seem to shift position like in your latest video about foot placement on full turns.

I don’t see any contradiction. I was just an observation that the pumping doesn’t involve movement of the back foot like in a full on top/bottom turn.
