You can't beat the feeling of a well timed drop knee cutback on a heavy single fin on a waist high wave. It's one of my favorite things about traditional style logging (as well as noseriding obviously) yet I recently developed a real mental block about doing them.
Like many things in surfing (and life), if you stop overthinking it and just do it, things usually work out.
Normal service is now resumed.
