Yep. The title of this post pretty much sums up where I’m at with my surfing right now, and I can’t help feeling disappointed.
The fact that I’ve got back onto my minimal after months of surfing my longboard hasn’t helped. It’s harder to paddle and I have to sit further inside to catch anything – I much prefer getting into the wave early. My upper body strength still sucks and, understandably, going back down in board size is bound to take some getting used to. So my wave count is a lot less.
But there’s one thing that’s really affecting my lack of waves and it’s something that I can totally control. My mindset.
