I prefer flying spaghetti monster with coffee table. :) Your right though that is not flat water. That is a fricking mirror. The sound of the board ripping the surface when it is that flat is just hypnotic.

super cool!
I love it. Great music too.
It got to be very shallow there.
In moment looks like rider is standing still.
I had a section on flat water in super light wind on my big door in SPI.
So calming.

While I agree nG, that is clearly not hard-core riding, it is pretty cool to see though. I haven't seen water quite like that before.

And, I'd rather be there doing that right now than sitting indoors at work.

I rode a couple of years ago some miles out from Key West at a place called the flats where the water is just a few inches deep and the sea grass tickles the board and keeps the water calm. It was pretty sick. The glass went on for miles in every direction away from the boating channel. Rode lit on a 13m and a 137 and was literally lol the whole time. I don't hear people talk about this spot much. Nick out of 7 gave lessons out there on a sandbar and gave me a lift out and back for $80.
