Some quality "Oke" there! Lovin' that water color and the storm clouds. And you're killin' it on the BP.

The swing weight is actually not that bad. After about 20 minutes I forget about it. The closer it is to your hands the less you notice the weight. I just leave it on my paddle the whole time.
The swing weight from you, TallDude, is exponentially greater than any average free standing human!  :P 8)

That's board packing perfection right there. I'm not understanding what you're saying about the tariffs. Was that complicated shipping itinerary something that helped beat the tariffs?

what do folks use to store the camera and mount while surfing assuming you might not want a paddle mount for the whole session?
I usually start with paddle mount for about an hour and then put it on the nose mount so this way I get footage from both povs

I used a standard GoPro deck mount to attach the cam to the Bike reflector mount.
pretty light and strong.
I like the way that looks, Creek! Seems a coupla notches better than the old handlebar mount.

Looks a notch or two above groveling to me! Nicely done, jarvi. We've had it muy bueno here in NJ on the 8th, 9th, and 10th. Long period south swell w/local wind swells mixed in is perfect here. Breaks up the long lines from the 16 sec swells.

Nice paddle mount, TD! I'm still bicycle handle bar mount. Seems to be on there strong. I really tightened it up. With the Session5 cube style cam it's nice and small w/out a whole lotta swing weight. I mount it closer to the blade though it looks like. This is a pretty old picture from when I first tried it.

Ain't baggies grand? Nice and warm on this side too right now! Nice board, Matt! Sim style sup w/like a bat wing type tail? Handling it nicely. Funny, I finally motivated my GoPro also. Reconnected it to the app and everything!
Good work getting the sesh posted. That progressive metal rock was sweet.
Those stills are really nice too. The third shot looks almost overhead for you...that's almost double-o to me!  8)
My last SS frame grab was from the second day of the swell. I was in a spring and WAY too hot. Ridin' a 9' soft top.

Owner at South End Surf and Paddle (Ken Brah) where I do surf and uke lessons hooked me w/a nice paddle.  No elliptical shaft or T handle but the price was right (free!). Will miss the old Methane. The Carbonerro PRO SERIES 85 is a bit larger of a blade than I would prefer but like I mentioned, price was right. He said they were the only size he brought in. I cut it down to 70".
New to me-

Nice video on their website.

A mere flesh wound  ;D
LOL...It's sittin' in my shed w/your name on it, Roy!

See if Rick the Creek can get you a Sunova.  I'm using the Silver Wave model (fixed). Only US$269.00 on the website.

Interesting paddle progression. You have my attention!
I think my Methane knew I was considering a replacement. Karma's a b!tch, man!
RIP the Kialoa Methane  :'(

The Bronco, and the house are very stylish, and the board is really sweet.
Made me lol!😂😂

That is the world's coolest sup turkey ever! He don't need that Chantix sh!t! If this turkey can quit cigarettes and alcohol cold turkey he surely can. Will power is way stronger.
Interesting book, badger. My mom coulda used that Allen Carrs Easy Way to Stop Smoking cuz her will power to stop was not strong enough. She used to smoke those Vantage cigarettes with the pinhole filters to draw in extra air. I would smoke em taped up to make em potent! She would collect the butts and put em jars w/water to try to disgust herself but it never seemed to work.

Ya, there was 'Marc the Drum Major' ...then you almost did a perfect missile strike on that guy paddling out.  That wave looks waaay cold but held up for you.
lol...Drum Major...never thought of that and it's so spot on. That near missile strike was sketch and that day was really fun.

The Methane was my first paddle.  later Pipes. The Sunova is still the best paddle I've ever used.
Interesting paddle progression. You have my attention!

I was thinking rash guard immediately and figured Koredry was just that. I rarely go w/out a rashie these days. Mail order is a gamble for fit no doubt.

So jealous.
I always said never deny another surfer jealousy. It's an important part of the puzzle.

Happy your back in action.
Thanx LBsup. Is that a Long Beach thing in your user name? I love surfing there! Shoulder feels kinda ok...ain't what it used to be!

Looks like your paddle got 'covered' at ~2:15.   I like the way you use it as a long-arm stabilizer. We have guys here that may as well throw them away; they carry them.
Funny, when I first learned to sup surf I would do alot of that holdin' the paddle with one hand thing. Takes a while to learn how to use a paddle proper. That Kialo Methane is like an extension of my soul! Amazing how a good paddle makes a big difference.
 Your comment made me think of my video titled ''South Swell Sweeping'' where I really saw how my paddle wasn't be used and just held one-handed while I surfed the sup. That was b4 I was on forum here, back in Spring 2013. 9'3'' Isle Performance shape. That board worked really well. Always wanted to post a new topic w/that board.

Check out the quad long board at the 05:55 mark. Best PA backyard board that I ever had. Built by a friend of mine and sold to me.

Most of Monmouth County was without power, so "some of us" hung out the closed sign and went surfing!  (Others, less fortunate, went Golfing...)
Guessin' you were hittin' the waves and not golf balls. Also guessin' your SOLOSHOT stayed home. Shame shame. :-*

flowzone! I hope your heel's well healed I surfed with a bad cut on the tip of my thumb so I butterflied the cut, then draped 3 big pieces of tegaderm over the thumbtip, then put on 3 "finger cots"
"Flowzone"! I like that! Future video title? Never heard of tegaderm. Funny, I asked my wife if she had ever heard of it and she actually had a picture of it on her phone to show me. Fin cut is healing slowly. I was seven days dry dock until the three hours I put in yesterday. Waves were WAY too good to pass up.

Nice smooth style.  Is that a Soloshot, or do you have someone filming? Thought I was going to have a stroke yesterday morning. No wind, air temp 90F, water temp 82F, and humidity hovering at 85%.
Thanx on the smooth style comment. Keeping our surfing smooth is something we all need to strive for. Guessing you didn't watch the credits at the end! Check for video source.  :P We have just exited our heat wave. Yours sounds just as brutal. Don't collapse on us Oki!

What a different water temp from MoCo.....still bathwater and trunks up here. Although our waves were probably half that size on the south swell!  Need to get back to LBI!
When we get those strong south winds accompanied w/offshores right afterwards a serious up-welling effect takes place and that's when the water dips down. I was the only one in trunks but did add a 1mil top and boots. All the proners were in full suits. Would be super cool to have you visit me for another sesh.

Looking good on your PSH.
My SUP surf buddy Terry is on LBI this week... excellent musician, you guys would hit it off.
If you see some happy Irish SUPster on a longer SUP.... say hi!
Thanx, Creek. That PSH is a sweet ride for sure. Toss your bud my cell and tell him to contact me. Always willing to welcome another musician/surfer into my circle.
