Hi,

I come to think of the old but oh so nice feeling nose plunge landing, where you dig the nose down deep and the nose rocker takes you round bubbling up to the surface from waist deep down always staying on top of the board.

I mean these last few years after I learnt the forward, every time I kinda get a little forward motion, I end up going round just for the heck of it.

Isn't there some kind of points given in competition for a steep nose diving landing - I think it still takes some balance and skill to balance the landing without ending up waterstarting it up to the surface.

So, what do you think, can this old school kind of thing have a rebirth?

Sorry for asking, but do you know if nose landings are a "move" done at all these days with the short nosed boards of today?
