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.

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)

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.

I'll bet it catches waves super easy.

…. specialist from Sea World were able to remove the netting. Unfortunately, I died the next week. It swam under....

So sorry to hear that you died.  You were such a nice guy.    ;D
Well... obviously that wasn't true, because my son just asked me for $20 as he headed out the door ::)
  LOL!

Surfers reactions were all in sync with it happening.

Whales have cruised right past surfers on Cape Cod, in amazingly little water..... I couldn't find the picture of one 10' from surfers from last year.
I looked into a Whale's mouth once... could smell his breath as he surfaced just outside me.

I'll bet he had "fish breath"!

I've seen juvenile great whites swim under me at Trails but never anything like this big boy at DOHO.  Was anyone out and saw it, or is this some sort of digital fake?  Water seems too shallow for this to happen.  A buddy and I went out in his boat and followed a small pod of them for a bit outside the harbor, but this has me skeptical.

Used to be a 5 minute bike ride, now a 3 hour drive.

I made a little trailer out of a kayak wheel set and towed it behind my bike for several years in Newport.  It was great because parking a car is such a problem there, but there is always a spot on the bike racks.  I bought one of these below on ebay and then modified it into a great SUP trailer.

That's a great idea. Thanks. Did you make a long tongue that connected the carrier to your bike? What was the tongue made out of and how did you connect it to your bike?

Didn't need to.  I bungeed the nose of my boards to the wheels and attached the tail of the board using an extra string in my leash plug.

Looks like maybe good for kiteboarding, so maybe I should learn.

Nope, winging is what you want to learn. It’s ideal for Lake Norman.

That's something I may want to try now that you mention it.
