Stoke Factor. \stōk ˈfaktər\ — Noun: The level of excitement about getting out on the water. Tends to rise and fall week to week, day to day, as the waves vary with surf conditions.
There is nothing in the whole world like a great day out on the water and when it gets good and the moment comes where you can cash in on some epic waves the stoke factor is unreal.
When all the time on the water paying your dues results in great session it’s why you get out there as much as you can. You never know when tides, wind and swells will line up and you will catch a wave deep and end up getting a long ride. The sun is setting and nobody’s out there so you can paddle right back out and catch another one. Those are the days when everything is just right, the stoke factor is high and life is just good.
Sometimes your out there on the water and it’s not very good but your out there with a couple friends. You are laughing catching a few glides and its great to be just bobbing on the water enjoying sun on your back and time with some friends.
What’s more important than how excited you are to be where you are and how much fun you can have stand up paddling.
What’s more important than the stoke?
