Slot And Wheels Surfboard Launching Dock

Put your surfboard in the slot, hold onto a handle, when the wave comes just kick the board forward with the wave.

The linked surfing assist dock is so close to perfect, but you still have to run along with it carrying your board, dropping it at the precise right moment and jumping on it without falling off.

Putting a slot in the middle of it with a series of roller wheels on either side would allow you to put the surfboard's fin in the slot, stand on the board holding the handle, wait for the right wave and simply kick the board forward exactly like you would a skateboard, jump on and just be dropped in place at the end of the dock thingy.

Incidentally I'm going to treat surfing like getting a haircut this year. Make it a regular thing rather than just going when the schedule permits.

This is 90% there. https://www.youtube...watch?v=X9tU8ybzcFs
So finish it with a guiding slot and rollers. [doctorremulac3, Mar 09 2023]
