Wade Goodall And The Fanciest Floater You’ll See This Month
Introducing the “Top Knot”
Floaters aren’t sexy.
They’re transitional, designed for getting around sections and onto open face. The only time they impress is when they’re extra lengthy, or have some added flair (like Mason Ho’s disco floater). No one, to our knowledge, has ever gone down to their local and said, “I’m going to work on my floaters today,” because ending a wave with a floater is akin to kissing your sister. It’s usually the result of the convoluted internal question, “Should I turn, layback, air…ah, fuck… floater?” And, instead of doing the awkward combination of all four, straightening both legs, arms and back and feeling your board disappear from beneath your feet, you do a floater. Then paddle back out thinking, “I fucked that one up.”
Last night, @Vanssurf’s Instagram presented this clip of Wade Goodall and a fancy roof dance. And since, prompted by their IG’s caption, people have been trying to name it. Following a short scroll, someone called it a “Top Knot”, which is cute… almost sexy.
