when did it click?

Ive been surfing for about two and a half years now, and over the festive break everything just fell into place - Got out with ATTMFKH, Harkii and the Janitor - Paddled at the right pace into a right, zipped along the face and even managed to do the little jump out the back of the wave onto the board. Managed to replicate it a few times since, but jeeez what a feeling - anyway, when did it click for any of you lot? did it take that length of time?

took a couple of years of surfing inconsistently when I was about 9/10 and then it clicked.
Good news is you keep getting those moments throughout your time surfing, IE top to bottom surfing, surfing backside (that one took longer for me than it should have!) heavier and heavier waves. once you do something a couple of times muscle memory kicks in and you can start worrying about the next thing, then the next... etc.
That's why it''s maddeningly addictive!
