> If one is using a traditional "orbit until selected GF" method for instance, as soon as you're stopped or begin to decelerate, you've given away exactly where you intend to be for that wave.

Disagree with that. If I decelerate, that means full stop or reverse will take me to a safer point than full forward. But things could change next tick and I'll go back the other way, and again after that. I wouldn't say "orbit until selected GF" is an accurate summary of the "traditional" surfing algorithm.

My latest attempt at random surfing actually randomized the stats that my normal surfing algorithm works from, so it shouldn't have been subject to any tells re: what path I take to get to the "target/random GF", because that didn't really exist.
