    Ahh it was my bad. Tide was dropping but i thought i was still ok and doing the spocks in an area that has sort of a rock free pool but wasnt quite situated where i thought so in that last slide in the video i hit a rock big time and its quite the damage i did to my board. Will def be my biggest repair so far.

    Never understood why you guys do your thing in such shallow water. But well done on getting it right and hope the board survives!

    yeah it was a mess up on my behalf. But i actually tried the trick there to avoid the chop and it is also nice to be in waist deep water when you keep falling again and again, helps with keeping fingers warm because you can shake them a bit after each run and also safes some energy.

    Hey there !

    Thanks to my new board (fanatic skate 100), I'm starting to land my vulcan more and more consistantly (1 out of 5). So I start looking toward the spock .

    Do you think it's too early, and I should rather polish those vulcan ?
    Here is 2 of my last vulcan on video:

    And here is a few spock attempts. What do you think I'm doing wrong ? what should I do ?
