Ask a surfer what’s the best wave or best surf he or she had and they’ll probably say it was their very last session. Maybe it was a long ride, a few turns off the lip, a floater or better yet — a barrel. It’s almost like trying to describe what was the best chocolate you’ve ever tasted or something along those lines. It’s all good.
If you’ve surfed as long as I have, it hardly makes a difference anymore. They’re all the best at this point. And it may not have been a particular wave that made it the best. It could have been that all your friends were out on that day or better yet: you met a new one. So many reasons.
