NICE Weed!

I love seeing your stuff!!!!  I've got a big empty wall in my home office that I need to fill.  Always thought it'd be super cool to have a large framed unpretentious SUP photo of an outing.....a nose ride shot, a cool turn...something.  One day!

Look forward to seeing more!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's a keeper Badger. Put the photo on a USB bring it to a copy center they can blow up the photo 11x14 for about $2.50 A camera shop will cost more but they will do a better job.

Thanks WhatsSUP.

  Here is a sequence of photos of when Laird got stuck inside at Malibu on huge Hurricane Marie surf a few years back.  I've posted some of these before but left out one a very interesting photo that I will explain below.

  I'll probably get the sequence wrong with the photos so here is the story.

Laird caught a large wave at the point and it closed out on him just past first point.  He straightened out and moved down the coast a bit.  He climbed back on his board and tried to paddle out during a set.  He didn't make it out.  He successfully went over a few foam balls but a third wave hit him and he fell while going over the foam.  Something you probably don't see much but hey, he's human.

He was stuck inside approx. 100 yards from the Malibu Pier.  This was a terrible place to be with the macking swell, high tides and fast moving inshore current.  It should be noted I saw Lifeguards rescuing many surfers in this area which is usually placid.

Laird prone paddled in this area taking a full brunt of set waves on his head.  This particular set just kept coming and coming!  He was prone paddling "Full on" not making any headway but not loosing any either.  Then he did something that still astonishes me.

The best photo is the one that's hardest to see near the fence. Laird turned his (looked like 10' sup board) upside down, held onto the rails, and did a "Turtle maneuver" while holding onto his paddle.  If you look closely you can see his black paddle and hands on the rails while he is upside down going under the broken wave.
  This was done in pounding shore break. To this day I have never seen a sup surfer ever attempt this.  I've thought about trying this but I'm certain the board would smash me in the face and I would probably loose my paddle?  It worked for him.  He then put his chin down as if to say, "Enough of this" and prone paddled out of that mess with great determination.  Once safely outside he stood up in good form and paddled out the point.  This was also the same day he shot the pier a few times.

To see Laird turtle a board , hold onto paddle, and get out of that nasty shore break...still amazes me!  I gave the story to various sup magazines but probably due to me poor photo skills they weren't interested.  I was very impressed!

Happy Easter!

Also, when the waves are as good as they are in Weed's photos, it is usually in the dead of winter.  This photo was taken to the South of us, the same day that Creek and I were surfing the waves in the photo below it.

Weed:  Thanks as always for taking the time to capture and post your images.  I know that the whole Cape Cod Crew greatly appreciates it.
 
So I started to look through the images on my computer and all the best ones were taken by you!!  Even to the point where one of your recent photos as my avatar.

And so, the only images that I have to add to this thread is a (recycled) flat water paddling shot from Lake Bled in Slovenia:

(https://www.standupzone.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi1318.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Ft660%2FNEsurfSUP%2FSUP%2520in%2520Bled%2520Slovenia%2FFILE0091_zpsb95c3a34.jpg&hash=bca4ee71089e96bc74249080d827ece2)

Thanks Weed. Here is my paddling route from yesterday. This is one of my favourite paddling trips and I normally like to make it a full loop, but I wouldn't have made it back for easter dinner, so a friend did the drop off and pick up. The current is picking up, so it was nice to be able to skip most of the upstream part.

I thought that the surf season this Winter in California was kinda sucky...a few moments here and there...nothing really sizable sustained for back to back weeks...plus, wonky winds...high tides...water quality issues with the much needed rains...etc...but, some years it does come together for dreamy conditions...

I windsurfed for 30 years I've been on the injured reserve for a few years 9 surgeries. Just found out I have carpal tunnel in both hands and had an MRI done recently for my back so I only do sup tour paddling. As long as I'm near the water I'm a happy camper constantly trying to capture that killer shot. It's kind of like hunting but without a gun.  :)

There is something about photos of Beasho's surfing at Mavericks. Those massive waves, that set jaw, those abused boards. No-one else in sight. Awesome. Super-heroic. Norse god-like. I'm not kidding. There is more soul in a grainy, ill-composed photo of him than I have seen in any other surf photo. Stoneaxe agrees:

I love this picture......like a warrior girded for battle.

Rhone river just out of Geneva, on it's way to Marseilles. It's a nature reserve where lots of migrating birds stop at. Migrating birds of course following major rivers. It goes through some gorges which made for natural borders. The Romans (Julius Cesare) held the Helvetii back at those gorges. The fortress shown here built by a duke of Savoy. Now a museum. We used to throw parties in it before it was converted to a museum.

One can SUP it all the way down to Marseilles. Friends have done that.

All of those SUP photos that I posted "ruined" and "hijacked" this thread...how's that?!?!
The more the merrier as far as I'm concerned...this one is just getting started...let's see yours!

Every image that's been posted on here has value and beauty in one way or another...and, I would rather see SUP pics than inane political pablum...etc...;-)

Sorry that you can't enjoy the images that I posted because of my logos...but, just like Eddie...I have 1000's of SUP surfing pics...heck, tens of thousands...most of them with my branding because I only ride my own board designs and have for years...besides, didn't seem like this was an "unbranded" photo thread...or, is that a "new rule"?...;-)

The original SUP photo thread that features beautiful flatwater paddling has 23 pages and has been going since 10/2012...my pics in that thread are a small drop in the bucket...and, I have just as many flatwater paddling pics as I do SUP surfing pics...so, I guess water has a way of seeking it's own level...

Big difference of great SUP photos and of take a look here's 30 pics of my boards w different paint jobs (all for sale in case you wanted to buy one).

Just so you know lots of zoners feel the same way I do bud, just saying sometimes maybe just one pic here and there, there's something called overdoing it to a point it drives people away.

Big difference of great SUP photos and of take a look here's 30 pics of my boards w different paint jobs (all for sale in case you wanted to buy one).

Just so you know lots of zoners feel the same way I do bud, just saying sometimes maybe just one pic here and there, there's something called overdoing it to a point it drives people away.

I've got better things to do with my time than argue with you...but, there is something in photography called a "sequence"...and, that was what I was trying to highlight...every frame is actually different to an unbiased eye...but, I guess if you've seen one WD SUP image...you've seen them all...;-)

Seems that you are trying to play judge, jury, and forum content censor policeman...plus, PIO...where does it say in the small print that just scenic shots of New England are allowed here?...;-)

FYI...I've known Eddie from back in the windsurf days...even my wifey and him are friends on Facebook...he even paddles one of my One World SUP models...whatevers...time to move on...

Here's one that I took down near my property in Mexico that was in Outside Mag...and, another from same day used by an online e-zine...not a wave in sight...but, there are plenty nearby...;-)

Look ma...no logos!...;-)

peace out...

And so much for one of the best SUP photo threads on the Zone, went from beautiful SUP photos, to pics of folks catching waves, to hey look at the boards I have for sale, thanks for ruining a great thread Wardog !!!!

Sorry Eddie, you starting something wonderful but someone had to come along and hijack it for their own self interests.

Yup I said it and I know many of your where thinking it!!!!

I was thinking the same thing when I saw the Wardog post and it isn't the first time I felt a thread was hijacked.  Wardog you make some great shapes, take some nice photos and videos, but sometimes you need to leave the business behind. By now most of us long time Zoners know you own a SUP company..me included and I think you make some of the best travel bags out there ( I own two) but I do get a little tired of seeing photo after photo after photo of your different shapes in a thread that has nothing to do with SUPSports.  I believe there is a Marketplace thread and also classifieds where we can go when we want to see what's for sale...

Here's the irony, Don...I started posting images of standup paddling online over a dozen years ago...back when it was referred to as "beach boy surfing"...a Google search of "standup paddling" back then returned results about comedy and kinky sex...;-)

A couple of years later...Summer of 2007...I met Admin (Randy) on the beach at Laniapoko after a standup sesh and he invited me to post on a new forum that he was starting...we actually met online...on the Hot Sails forum several years before that...but, I was too busy developing boards and products...opening a dedicated standup paddling retail store...etc...to join in until Feb., 2009...

After that,  I became a site sponsor to help support this site and the sport...and, I write checks for a couple of hundred dollars a month towards that effort...so, in my mind...it's the Admin that makes the rules here...telling me where, what, and how much I can post...etc...

I don't think that too much "free" SUP photo content is what's wrong in the world...or, even worth bothering about...;-)

I didn't post until the third page of this thread...and, then it was the higher rez versions of my thumbnail sized avatar animation...in focus SUP surf shots taken with a $5K lens and a $2.5K camera...hardly hijacking...or, ruining the thread...in fact, very few of the logos on my boards in the pics are even discernible if you didn't connect me to the images...the bottom shot of BW on page 4 was taken by a pro with a $50K+ camera...again, great content for free...

So I'm "guilty" of the sidebar I had about Woody and the flame boards...which are also featured on a low rez side panel banner ad to the left of the page...a photo of Woody on that board was also in one of the standup mags not too long ago...so, there was still some relevance...YMMV...

Standup paddling in "Painted Cave"...Channel Islands, California...pioneering SUP cave paddling back in the day...

In 2009 this was one of the biggest waves ever surfed, much less SUP'd.  This was back when SUP's, Haley Fiske, Ian Wallace, Laird and Dave Kalama were catching bigger waves than PRONE surfers because they were faster.  Soon the prone surfers would rely on longer boards to keep up.

Nice to put a few faces to the user names. BTW; looking at Mr Big, since I've got an eye for details, comparing my 5'8" height and my 147 pound size and seeing Mr Big's lower extremities minus the coat, I'd guess Mr Big is around 5'8" and 150 pounds.

We paddled the length of the lake from Nyon to Montreux (50km/30mi) in favour of this charity event. Arriving in time for cocktail hour and the party.

Great pics...love the moodiness of the fog...

A few years back we were camping on the edge of a lake that had never been standup paddled in the Sierras at around 9200' altitude...snowed on us in August driving in...after a very cold night, as the sun came up the next morning, a fog was created on the water as the land quickly warmed up...

Deb snapped these as I paddled out when it was forming...still some of my favorite flat water pics...the fog disappeared almost as quickly as it formed...

A few from the original tipping point "Woodstock" event of SUP racing...Rainbow Sandals sponsored "Battle of the Paddle"...2008...2009...2010...

At the 1st BOP, Chuck Patterson gambled on a $200 entry fee and walked away with $10K in beer money…he was on the wagon for the last month before the race…;-)

At that point in time, good paddlers on surfboard style SUPs were still placing at the top of the heap...probably still could in certain conditions...;-)

Boy, that brings back some memories. I think that's where I met you the first time. I thought I took first in the over 60 class--was listed that way. But Mickey Munoz beat me in the last hundred yards--it was blowing like stink right in our faces and that short, skinny buggah got way down and choked up on his paddle. Came from 50 yeards behind me while I was barely moving forward. I still showed first in the results because they had him listed as a woman!! And corrected it just before the awards ceremony up at the surf museum.

First time I had a conversation with Gerry Lopez too. I didn't notice the table was reserved and sat down to eat. Gerry's wife was kind of giving me the bum's rush, but Gerry said "Let him be, he's old" with his typical big grin. I think he's two years younger than me.

That sure was fun.

Speaking of Chuck, I took my first SUP, a 11 foot soft top, to Baja on a windsurfing trip. I camped next to Chuck and asked him for some tips because I had yet to catch my first wave. He was on a 10'6" custom Hobie and said he had a 10 footer being made and wasn't sure if he'd be able to ride anything that short.

My fav pic that I have taken of Chris (CapoBeachBoy) on his Uli flato is this one at a Dana Pt. SUP race...
Love his attitude...he's invited back to our home anytime...

I have literally thousands of SUP racing pics...my wifey raced the Cali Winter Race Series to a bronze medal one year...and, we sponsored many local events...the Cali Downwind Series... and the Naish Series...etc...

We had an 8 person SUP race team that included Rich Schroeder (2 time Olympic Breast Stroke Gold Medal) winner who also became the winner of the Naish North American Summer SUP Race Series...Rich finished in 5th place (out of 250) at the first BOP Open race…only his 2nd race ever on a board we built in a garage here in Santa Barbara…I’m also stoked that 3 of the top 7 racers out of 254 in the open race were using my fin designs…we also had another racer on his 3rd time on a SUP, with a top 20 finish...arrow or the indian?...;-)

Aloha PB,
I know that we hung out a bit before that...remember, the Starboard dealer's meeting in Oregon at Netarts Bay in August '08?
Sven asked me to try and convince the other SB dealers that standup wasn't going to erode their businesses...;-)

We might have met on Maui when we were hanging out with Bill Foote...or, from windsurfing...we always rented that compound just upwind from Sprecks...
We also spent a good part of 17 summers, starting in '83, windsurfing between the Oregon Coast and the Gorge...where we had lots of friends in the industry...
Windsurfing Hawaii used to be based in Santa Barbara...etc...

I also remember that we over-nighted a fin to you for a SB SUP back in the summer of '07, while you were in the Pittsburgh area car racing...and, we had some friendly email chats before that, so we must had made the acquaintance of each other before then...maybe Laniopoko...we SUP surfed there back in the day with a hot little ripper kid named Slater...;-)

Boy, that brings back some memories. I think that's where I met you the first time. I thought I took first in the over 60 class--was listed that way. But Mickey Munoz beat me in the last hundred yards--it was blowing like stink right in our faces and that short, skinny buggah got way down and choked up on his paddle. Came from 50 yeards behind me while I was barely moving forward. I still showed first in the results because they had him listed as a woman!! And corrected it just before the awards ceremony up at the surf museum.

First time I had a conversation with Gerry Lopez too. I didn't notice the table was reserved and sat down to eat. Gerry's wife was kind of giving me the bum's rush, but Gerry said "Let him be, he's old" with his typical big grin. I think he's two years younger than me.

That sure was fun.

Aloha PB,
I know that we hung out a bit before that...remember, the Starboard dealer's meeting in Oregon at Netarts Bay in August '08?
Sven asked me to try and convince the other SB dealers that standup wasn't going to erode their businesses...;-)

We might have met on Maui when we were hanging out with Bill Foote...or, from windsurfing...we always rented that compound just upwind from Sprecks...
We also spent a good part of 17 summers, starting in '83, windsurfing between the Oregon Coast and the Gorge...where we had lots of friends in the industry...
Windsurfing Hawaii used to be based in Santa Barbara...etc...

I also remember that we over-nighted a fin to you for a SB SUP back in the summer of '07, while you were in the Pittsburgh area car racing...and, we had some friendly email chats before that, so we must had made the acquaintance of each other before then...maybe Laniopoko...we SUP surfed there back in the day with a hot little ripper kid named Slater...;-)

I'm sure of that. I have a good memory, it's just very short. You, on the other hand, have one hell of a memory. I'm sure I bumped into you in the windsurfing years. I was a maniac for wind. If I wasn't in the Gorge or Clatskanie or Maui I was driving up and down the coast. Had a house in Manzanita pretty much just so I could windsurf there for about 30 years starting in the early 80's. Before that I was sleeping in my Aerostar van--got the Eddie Bauer version for the bed. Close quarters with all the gear, but damn I had fun. I know you did too. You've got the picture, I never took a one. Relied on my non-existent memory.

I think you're right Tom, I think I did it on a 11'6" Naish that Diane still has. I think she's used it twice.

Probably the last real swell of the season here on the North Shore of Oahu, small, but fun.

Exiled, the hoards are gone, and sweet waves to ride. Perfect!

This was actually a great winter for the second and third tier breaks on the North Shore, so the crowds have been fine. Last year the bigger swells and more frequent wind closed out a lot of my favorite secret spots.

Thanks for the pics guys.....and for leaving out the kook footage...:)...my head was so messed up Saturday that I just kept taking random lefts into the water.  Very fun few days though. Always fun to get down to the Cape for dawn patrol. Great crew, fun vibe, mellow waves both Friday and Saturday. Sue and I never got out for a paddle....cruised 6A home, came home and got lazy in the pool. We were going out this afternoon but when I got to Plymouth beach there was a surprise swell. Short period windswell but knee to thigh with a waist high set every 5 or so minutes. Low tide so it was breaking all over, surfed 3 hours and got a great workout in the whitewater.

Really enjoyed seeing the recent photo's...I'm sure there were a number of hoots and howlers and just plain fun!  Looking forward to a trip up there soon.

Look forward to more (pics)!!!!

Few from today.   Did the fog-rise session.  Few quick shots before I ran to work.   It's been great last few weeks in New England.  JP

This hasn't been touched in awhile and I wanted to resurrect it. Primarily because I was looking through Eddie's (Weed) FB pictures yesterday and was again thinking about how lucky we are to have him around chronicling the area and the Cape surf scene in particular. If you love surf pics and you're on FB...be prepared to spend some time browsing.... :)

We were in Nosara, Langosta & Tamarindo. We scored for our week in Nosara, but the wind howled all day & night for the few days we were in the Langosta/Tamarindo area.
