Dropping in or for that matter taking the drop ,in surf parlance, is always one of the best rushes available from boarding. Today I dropped into the deep end of the bowl at my local skate park. No big deal, I have done it many times before …but not for a good while.The first time you drop into a wave/ramp/bowl which is just a little out of your comfort zone the view looks like this.

The techniques and psychology are examined on a skate forum and an online surf writing resource. Both worth a look ….if you are so inclined.
