“Dude! Did you see my wave?”
With an uncontrollable grin on his face, Tanner O’Dowd quizzes the first person he recognizes after kicking out of a set wave that saw four feel-good gashes off the lip, about three seconds of head-dipping tube time, and at least two hoots from the cliff. If the anonymous crowd on land saw O’Dowd’s display of video game-like abilities, his friends in the lineup certainly must have as well. So he repeats the question to every one of his friends.
