From what I understand:

While the rocker gives a board it's characteristic handling capabilities, it slows the board down when planing. People sideslip in order to present a uniform, relatively flat surface to the water, thus reducing drag. One sideslips (turning the board sideways) because the middle of your board is the intersection of the nose and tail rocker and is therefore relatively flat.

quite simple really, when you turn your board sideways you create a vortex or "whirlpool" underneath the surface of the water. this vortex acts as a reverse resistance system, preventing you from sinking into the water. you can increase the effect of this system by turning into and out of a sideslip a maximum of 3 times, exploiting the so called "combination effect". It is possible to perform a 3x sideslip and subsequently begin to pump your board nose up and down. This is very difficult to do but allows you to maximize your board's distance quotient.

turn sideways. go far. although chi town is a pumper and he gets out a quarter mile too. no science there. run fast. get on smooth. go far. (oh yeah, lose some weight too) ask potter about the all rice diet.

Cant take it just got to type tonight after cleaning up the computer , seeing Dustin elbo making like a wishbone snap and all.. Now getting back to side slip what i found is that the more leading edge you got meeting the water as you side slip the more lift you have. Kind of like comparing a wide car tire which naturally doesnt have tread to a car tire which is narrow, give the water more edge to work with is better. 57 inch is a perfect length to have because if you have to much then it works against you, if you have to little then you might as well give up. Soooooo just do it right from there and she will love you. :roll:

No wonder the beach smells like it does with everyone trying to sideslip out really far, phoot. :shock:

All jokes aside, last session my board was going sideways so I started going with the flow and try to 360 during my run, I felt like it was starting to give me the sensations for side sweeping, anybody ever witnessed that?

Also (if I may) I spotted Selva last time at Montara, the boy has been practicing, you've made a lot of progress dude if you dont mind hearing that from frog cook!:)

Side sweeping is def some weird shit, I was watching a vid the other day, and from now on I call it "pulling a Jesus" coz it really looks like you're walking on water

No question. Selva is most improved skimmer in norcal for sure over the last year. Wait till the bff takes hold and look out
