@Off-Shore

You sure have a nice quiver of DW boards. I really like the way your SIC handle the different wind and wave conditions. Thanks for sharing your two newest videos.

Seems like great conditions OS! I hope you took a closer look at that SIC dugout.
is there an upcoming 1 minute downwind with that board coming up? Probably could
use more than just 1 minute but I'll settle for that :)
Thanks Burchas. Interestingly the guy on the SIC Dugout, is a surfer and this was his first ever downwind and he nailed it by the end.. hence the early falls! But I will get a better look at it and it's on my list to do a 1 minute downwind in the future. Today I swapped the Ace for a Naish Maliko 14 x 24" in downbreeze conditions with a headcam (see pic below), and was surprised I could actually balance on it so that's also on the list. I felt too heavy (84kgs / 185lbs) on it though so need some stronger wind like in the vid above to get that baby going.  ;)

Thanks Nightwing. Actually only the F16v3, Bullet 14v1 TWC and Ace 14 x 27 are mine ( ;)) and so now I am onto borrowing other people's boards mid run for the rest of the vids (except for the RPC iSUP 14 x 25), which I have actually shot, but surprisingly I had some fog or oil or something on the lens and it all came out blurry.. >:( and I'll have to wait for another day to shoot that one)

Here is the 2017 Blue Planet 14 x 27 Bump Rider on a 25 knot day in open ocean conditions which may have suited 16+ unlimited boards better...but was still a lot of fun
