One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
Not ridden or never having been ridden.
- ‘There were about 15-20 people in the water yet there were many unridden waves.’
- ‘Within three minutes another set approached, and I'd almost made it routine to let the first wave roll through unridden.’
- ‘Mate, the best waves are going unridden, and the tide's gonna kill it soon.’
- ‘Waves that at home would have had me putting life on hold and scrabbling frantically for board and wax now passed by unridden.’
- ‘The story of Cross' death is legendary among surfers with a sense of history and is considered one of the primary reasons why Waimea Bay went unridden until 1957.’
- ‘Yet in between the big ones, the ten-footers continued to roll through unridden and after an hour I caught myself thinking, well, geez, I could have ridden that one.’
- ‘This was the Harley-Davidson he kept in a loft, unridden, gleaming on a plinth.’
- ‘At the end of the session I ran back up the stairs, pausing halfway up to watch another set roll through - the first wave going unridden.’
- ‘However, I had neither board nor wetsuit with me and I sure as hell wasn't going to find anyone up here to borrow them off, so the waves peeled shorewards unridden, as they have for aeons.’
