In episode six Donald and Ashton discuss how to erase worry, subconscious obstacles, how the way we respond to a wave is precisely what surfing is, self identify tension and pain receptors and the reality we all face of wasting waves.
YouLane is . . . A year spent experimenting with boards and concepts shared together with Ashton Pickle. Learning together shapes you. Connecting weekly, recording these every three months and holding things loosely within the framework which we designed and committed to. Ashton is a talented shaper and excellent surfer. A husband and father of three.Specifically designing and shaping twin fin surfboards, for all wave types. I appreciate his vulnerability and willingness to spend this year together and record these with me for you all. Together we learn. Jimmy Thompson sits in on episode 5 and explains how he understands surfing and the places these twin fins and designs have taken him and his surfing. The goal of the entire “YouLane” concept is to find someone in your life with whom you can create a structure and framework that suits you. Learn, live, share.Repeat.
