The simple fact is that this is one of the most frustrating games I've ever played. There's really no way I can possibly stress that enough. The longer you play, the less you can concentrate and the worse your surfer does.
I was blown away by how good this game was. It really does take surfing and make it into a fun gaming experience. The main factor is how each wave has its own identity in look, dimensions, and more, just like in real life.
