SUP General / Re: OBX in Sept. Woo hoo!
« on: July 06, 2020, 01:11:23 PM »
I've taken many trips to the OBX but it's been a while. Kill Devils breaks crazy good I know, as does the rest of that magical strip of coast. Sept is prime hurricane season and chance are way good you'll score. Good hunting and you'll be stoked.


Thanks cook.  I hope I can catch it solid, but not too big.  Not going much has left me a little weak in my surfing skills, so I'm hoping for waist to shoulder high.

Zoo, thatís awesome.

I will tell you this. In a few years I may have to spend significant time inland. And when I do Iíll have a $1,000 craigslist inflatable outboard and Iíll foil behind that thing in every river and lake I can find. Just sayin...

Yeah, that sounds really fun, cowboy.  I'm only a few hundred yards from a small lake that you are allowed to SUP on, but I haven't bothered.  We have a giant lake about an hour away and I've been thinking about figuring out some way to learn to foil there.  I have a couple of friends with boats who might pull me, so hmmmm....

SUP General / OBX in Sept. Woo hoo!

We just booked lodging at Kill Devil Hills for Sept 7 - 12 and I'm totally psyched.  I haven't surfed much recently and haven't caught good waves since January when I was in Cali.  (I know there's good waves in NC, but the 3-6 hour drive limits my ability to score) I hear Sept is good in the OBX so any tips or spot suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Yeah, now I'm suspicious of people who don't wear masks!

Wear it with pride!

I'd be afraid to drop in front of a guy that looks like this!

If somebody scores, we would love to see some vid.  Even if it's just vid of the waves.  Please post.

Gear Talk / Re: Anyone riding Naish Hokua or Mad Dog?
« on: February 19, 2020, 11:02:24 AM »
I rode a couple of X-32's and didn't care for them.  Super stable, but slow and didn't turn as well as I hoped.  I owned a sub 8' Hokua a few years ago and found I didn't have the skill to make it go well.  It absolutely shredded when I was able to get going on a wave, but I had a terrible time catching waves and I fell over constantly waiting for waves.  That's not an indictment on the board, but more of an illustration that I was not as skilled as I thought I was.

Classifieds / 9'1 Sunova Creek Pretty much new
« on: February 17, 2020, 02:28:45 PM »
Beautiful, perfect, flawless condition, 9'1 Sunova Creek.  No dings, not even any scratches.  Ridden maybe 6 times ever.  $800.

I bought it and loved it, then moved to Charlotte, NC, and it hasn't seen water in 1 1/2 years.  I'm just not driving to the beach here as much as I promised myself I would.  I go back to California 3 or 4 times a year and surf my brains out then, but I have a board I keep there.

Surfing:  The board shreds. 
Wave Catching:  It catches waves super easy.
Stability:  It's stable, but not stable like a beginner board.  You should be at least an intermediate to enjoy this board.  A perfect step up from a lower performance board.
Turning:  The board is actually steerable from the center of the board.  You have to be on the tail to make slashes, but you can surf it just fine without ever putting your foot back.

DELIVERY:  Located in Charlotte.  I can ship, you pay shipping.  I can also meet you somewhere around Wrightsville Beach, NC or also somewhere around Nags Head NC.  Or somewhere else on my way to the OBX.  (I'll take any excuse to go there)

SUP General / Re: Whale encounter at DOHO? Fake?

Yeah, I think there is a color difference that follows the whale as it swims.

Doesn't it seem like there is an area of green water around the whale, follows it?  I think it's a fake.  Pretty well done, though.
