This Poll was suggested by Dan “Lusti” Lustiger. He asks, “what is the ideal playing surface?” This is a very interesting question. My favorite place to play is the beach, mainly because of the wind. So, my first thought was “sand, of course”. But then I realized that there are places with beach wind that have grass, like Palm Park. Upon further reflection, I realized how great artificial turf can be because it’s cushion allows me to crash and burn a little more. Of course a hard surface allows for skips and easier spinning, and I do love playing in doors as well. The more I think about it, the more confused I become. I like them all!
So the question really becomes, if you can only pick on surface to play on, regardless of any other playing condition, which on would you choose?
By the way, a few years back, Lusti wrote a great tutorial on the Flamingitosis. Here it is, if you’re interested.
