Great spot!
Do they still have the $5.95 "all you can eat, champagne brunch" on Sundays in the restaurant there?  ;D ;D ;D
We didn't care good the surf was... every Sunday, we parked at that buffet for 4 hours, filling up for the week!

Thanks... I have sooo much footage that trying to relocate favorite clips is a pain.... many times I can't remember what session they were from.
I'll look into the poaching app.... then i can poach my own content  :) it will be faster

Well.... you revolutionized paddles....might as well make foiling more user friendly as well! :)

Short answer: vanity

Not at all..... I'd call it a keen appreciation for fine art.
Your board is beautiful.... makes sense to keep it that way!

Makes me wonder...... hummmmmm, I may suggest that Rail Saver make a full length deckpad....
one that applies from your stomp pad, to the nose.... with more aggressive texture from standing area backward.

So many beautiful boards out there that deserve to be seen, not covered up!

Nice re-mix... thanks I liked that  ;D
How do you grab pieces like that without having the raw footage?
I'd like to do that, without having to slog through all the raw footage to grab clips I have already used.

Your drone video is fun.... nice to see more of the paddling and surroundings.

Great story HM.... kayadogg is a skilled waterman, so I am not at all surprised to hear he rocked his 1st Maliko!
The fact that he got to do it with you, is a marker in his surfing life.

The Zone bringing people together for SUP adventures and friendship.... priceless  :)

I have seen that pumpkin and will confirm that it looks sweet indeed!
Nicely configured mrBigly  :)

Hey SA, nice stick!
Always awesome when the new board is as good as you hoped!

I agree that FCS Dimple Pad is the best.... it's so light that I am curious why you don't also use it between the standing pad and tailpad... probably a few ounces.

Can't wait to see some LB vids.

I like the way Erik mixes in casual turns, like slow carve building to a "whip" at the end.... very stylish and fun to watch.

Another thing that Erik does is flick his board away with his feet.
He takes the lip bouncing the board into him, out of the equation....a great way to stay safe.

Hi seadart

I usually recommend the "modified surf stance" to people looking for more stability when taking off on a wave.... and it works on all size boards.

Parallel stance doesn't give you enough "fore & aft" stability to handle the initial "pitch" in the wave face, before you gain speed (thus stability)

To get in the modified surf stance, simply slid your back foot about 4 to 6" behind your front foot.... then turn your toes out a bit toward the rail (pic #1)

This give decent "front to back" ----- and "side to side" stability as you paddle for a wave

When riding the wave, I try to keep my front foot near the centerline of the board, and my back foot closer to the rail.
Sometimes I have them both on the same side of the board.

If your feet are on opposite side of the board, they fight each other.... making turning hard.

I did a video to show footwork on a wave, to show where I place my feet to do different turns.
I'll add it here to show where you feet should be to turn most SUPs.....on really small SUPs, you can leave your back foot in the middle, but I find I need to move it on most of my boards.

Pics below vid show foot placement.... check them out before watching the vid.

in flat-water, practice moving your feet, you will find that they will move without upsetting the board to much.

Hi Miss Adventure

If the water is above 50 F, I always dress for air temp.... even when surfing.
If the air is 65, light wind and sunny, I can easily handle falling in without a wetsuit, since you are in less than 10 seconds.
Jump back on the board and sun dry in 65* air.

If I wear a wetsuit at those temps, I sweat to death and jump in just to cool off.

If it's early in the season and the water is still under 50 but the air is above 70... I'll wear a 1.5 mil long sleeve vest.
The reality is you are in the air all the time. Even if surfing, you are only in the water momentarily... and a measure of safety for a longer swim.

Will you be at the Carolina Cup?
I will be there with my Sunova Demos at the Pro Surf contest.... then we will be at the Carolina Paddleboard Company Tent for race weekend.
It would be nice to meet up for a paddle. I'll be the one without the wetsuit  ;D

So cool Beasho, although I doubt I will ever have capacity in all things for 4K.

Heron Island is amazing, I spent a weekend there in 1985
Boat in, Helo out.... reefs were perfect, I was also there for the hatching.... but my photo's are more like 2 kb  ;D

Hi beasho.... yup, I still have the GoPro... but I am pathetic with a paddle mount. Rotator cuffs won't pick it up  ;D

Might be some creek crotch vids coming!....actually, now that I picture that, I may get my cuffs repaired.

I just saw this board for the first time today when Tino emailed me pics, and thought of you.... nice recess and the wide tail looks fairly stable.
Plus they generally offer different widths on all their models.

I'll put up a few pics since they are the 1st ones anywhere of this new design.
