Quote:Horseshit. Here's the quote: "i've always wondered if roy just stops at speed (distance over time), or whether he considers the fact that acceleration (change in speed and/or direction) plays a big factor in most surfer's pursuit of fun when riding waves."
A wordy way of saying that you prefer to jerk your board around frantically.
Nice apologetics on behalf of HT who initially claimed that TkNox would accelerate throughout the ride instead of reaching terminal velocity like an Olo. . . . well now that's been amended to 'we prefer to slow down and then speed up again'
Clearly HT was implying that the shortboard keeps on gaining speed throughout the ride and has now changed his tune realising that he was wrong.
Your argument is based on a factual error or deliberate misstatement.
now you need to take physics 101.
ACCELERATION is any change in speed OR direction. period. that is the DEFINITION!!!
what makes surfing fun for the vast majority of us is the fact that toed-in fins add great vector control.
a surfer who is constantly turning is constantly accelerating! whether its a long turn, short turn, any turn. you cannot turn without accelerating! it is absolutely impossible, by definition!
what was knox doing, constantly turning, therefore, by definition, constantly accelerating! sheesh!
i used the term EXACTLY according to the definition, which is EXACTLY what i meant.
in the video of taylor knox, for example, he is constantly accelerating for the duration of his rides! that's what's fun!
you guys do not understand the term acceleration (there is no such thing as "deceleration" in classical physic terms - ALL changes in either speed, or direction, is ACCELERATION, even if its braking)!
i am sorry that you both use the term incorrectly. perhaps if you take physics 101, you will understand what acceleration is. if you ever do a good turn, at high speed on rail, perhaps you will understand in practice, as well as theory, why toed-in fins are so fun...BECAUSE THEY ALLOW FOR THE SURFER TO CONSTANTLY ACCELERATE, AND AT HIGH LEVELS!
You silly, man.
BTW I know about toed-in fins and why theyre good for performance surfing.
