Hanging 10 at Waikiki


Roland Christen
 

Ok, you guys asked for it, here it is. Rolando hanging on for dear life with all 10 toenails dug into a longboard with Diamond Head in the background.

Well done Roland!

 

So what was your guide-rate set at for this particular adventure?  And were you auto-guiding or manually guiding?  I’d say that with such an old longboard, manual guiding would be more in keeping.

 

Thanks for posting this.

Since it was a long focal ratio board, around F15, I used multi-toenail guiding using the "dig in hard hang on tight" algorithm.

I hung on for dear life. Stuck out tongue winking eye  At Waikiki the coral is just 4 - 5 ft below the water line, so it's not pleasant if you wipe out.

Actually, the wipe out photos were much funnier than this one. Those were lost long ago, so don’t ask for them.  :^)

 

I have to say that the timing for this one was superb with Diamond Head perfectly positioned as a backdrop.
