So.....

Found a place where you were allowed to sneak onto the water yet? Burchas, got yours yet?

Looks sweet. I'm curious how it glides for flat water paddling.

Anyway...   I'm making a mounted canon (battery-powered leaf blower) to clean pine shatz off my steeply pitched roof.  I have confidence it will work, but I am pretty much scared of heights.  I know I can control it from the peak but may need a way to do it from the ground (facing me, of course ...so I can see what it is doing.)

Here is the way a real ADHD person would deal with pine cones on a roof.

Makes a way louder boom than any battery-powered leaf blower.

No worries, Pono. I trust that you'll get around to linking those interesting articles you teased us with in the title. I totally get it that you got distracted on the way to doing that.

All I have to say is, dress for the swim.

Second that.

Just curious what folks are wearing for DW runs in “moderate” conditions.
...
 But it even SUCKS to wear a 3 mil when you’re working. That paired with a PFD and I’m sweating my ass off.

What do you all do ?

I get the impression from what you say that you are overheating.

To answer your question I fall in plenty.

It's always hard to get what you wear just right. For DW's I dress for the swim, so wetsuit. I put a light one one and a windbreaker around my waist should I get cold. A simple windbreaker over a wetsuit warms you up quite a lot. Especially if you are wet and it's windy out.

lol already got the eye roll when she saw me on the forum asking about more boards haha

If I remember correctly Burcha's first posts were all about which board would fit in his apartment and car. Now he's a downwind animal.

You've been warned.

hi Kip,

Nice pic!

Yep. Nothing wrong with doing the learning curve on a clunker. Try boards here and there, and see what fits your conditions, will, and skills.

Maybe I [speed]read the thread too quick but I didn’t see much mention of your height and weight. Everything is relative.

I second advice given so far...
Take one step at a time, take a board that you can go out in all conditions and work your way down very progressively down to a board that suits you.

I imagine for trails you pick your gear for what types and distances your trails will be. Same same here. Choose more long distance and all conditions gear and get good (without incurring injury) and then optimise later for gear that let’s you tweak that little bit more go faster stuff.

And... just coz it’s it’s fun to rib A10  (mainly because I tend to agree with him - and I bought a board based just on his review once)... You’re right Kip. Trail running has a lot of cross-over skills w SUP. SUP will improve your trial running and hopefully allow you to recover from your trial injuries. It’s all win win. (I live on the St Bernard ultra trail path and just a couple of miles from the UTMB path).

Trail running is hugely balance and path reading - just like SUP, especially in rough water conditions. Which is why you should be keeping an open mind to a board better suited for rough stuff - rather than a pure flat-water board.

not the best demo of something that works amazingly well.

But interesting if it does work. Simple. Simple is good.

Very nice design. One can tell just by looking at it how it works. Awesome to see hollow light boards coming out.

You mentioned it works well upwind in bumps. Do you stand in the same place as for flatwater on the board or shift a bit?

...
It's surprisingly easy to handle heavy wind on a port tack going upwind. the foil stays up, it seems fairly easy to spill wind when a nuclear gust hits me. But on the starboard tack, especially if I'm up on the foil, I lose control easily and wind up going downwind, which is challenging. I need to let the wing just swing out in front of me, but it's hard to remember that when the little safety dude is screaming in my ear.

I assume you surf regular, so on starboard tack you’re on your switch side.

You need to check if your board has a leak.

You should, of course, have weighed your board when new. If not do it now. Then monitor.

What you describe happened to me twice.

Once when a friend took my board out without closing the venting screw. First thing I noticed were those foot dents. Exactly as you describe. Had to set it out to dry for a summer. Once dry the dents went [mostly] away.

The other when riding another board (on a DW) a friend kept falling on my board on his knees. I was next to him and kept begging him to PUHeeeeease fall in the water instead (warm summer, go figure). After that my board quickly developed those foot dents you describe. I felt something was wrong. Soon enough my board was very heavy. Had to cut the deck right off. It was totally waterlogged. Deck was cracked (under pad) right around where knees would fall.

Always monitor the weight of your boards.
