Surf issues

My neighbor's kid is our groups most accomplished surfer, we are all just starting with the sport. Last week and this week however he couldn't get rid of the rope, he normally gets up and gets rid of the rope in about 15 seconds.

Nothing has really changed other than water and air temps. Does the water temp cooling off change how boards ride?

Does the board need wax or something?

Any advice would be appreciated,

Steve

We all have bad days on the water. I've never heard of anyone waxing the bottom of anything used in watersports lol.

[QUOTE= Does the water temp cooling off change how boards ride? No it does however make the rider change his normal ride since he's trying harder to get out of the water.

Does the board need wax or something? No, never waxed a board.

I'm guessing it's just the rider, maybe he's just nervous about falling in the cold water and or etc...

did you guys change weighting? seating of people? more or less people in the boat...?
All these might affect your amount of push.. My old x-2 was finicky like that. .the weighting would be off a bit and you'd lose the push, change the speed even the slightest same thing.
.. the wave would look great, just didn't have the guts to get me going..

Some lakes drop the water level in the winter, so if your depth has gotten less than say 10-15ft, that can affect the wave quit a bit.

Your problem is that you are surfing while so many of us have our boats in storage for the winter.

Count is as a bad day, and go at it again next time. We have had days when things just dont work even when all variables seem to be exactly the same as the day before when rides were epic.

This is the most logical reason...How deep was the water?

The day I wrote the post the water would have still been 12-15' deep where we typically surf.

Generally speaking it is usually experience, followed by the wake, then the board that prevents people from being able to ride without using the rope for assistance. No, boards do not get waxed on the bottom. A wake can look perfectly acceptable or good, but not really have any magical 'push' to it. If is is a chronic problem get back on here and we can deduce it down pretty quickly.
