It's not too clear from the pic so is the New Javelin full on dugout or just recessed deck?

I canít give a good paddle report because Iím too much of a novice!

That's exactly why your report counts! I may miss things that will be important to a novice, so your point of view
might offer some useful insights. Let us know how shortening your paddle affected your experienced with the board.

I really liked they touched the light wind/protected water in the Naish video since that is where I would probably
spend most of my time with a rig like that, but how realistic is this from a beginner stand point?

Some people take their dogs out on the SUP, now you can take a little bit of your cat, every time. Board looks nice, congrats.

Thanks!  My dog will go out, too, after Iíve paddled it a few times.

Waiting for first paddle report. Look at the cat's hair as a good luck charm. Congrats again!

I'm afraid my predecessors really underestimated the severity of the situation.

This is the equivalent of a radioactive and will require some next level treatment which I'm in a position to provide.
door to door service of course, I'll unload this problem off your hands in no time.

Burchas, do have any experience with Nelo yet?

Yes. Not the perfect SUP PFD. If you're just cruising and want a reasonably priced low profile PFD it might work.
Works much better if you have a bigger bust. Flat chested will require the crotch strap to prevent from riding up and it's awkward.

Sizing not an issue at all, will fit most people. Not a good fit for performance paddling imo. The shoulder trim might create neck chafing for Stand-Up
or Canoe paddlers. I didn't even bother taking it out, just going through the motions for few second with the PFD on and I knew it's going back.

Replaced it with a new Vaikobi PFD.

Good to know.  Iíll contact Vaikobi and see if they have one that might fit me.

They have sizing chart on each product page, was useful and accurate for me before.

Seems like the surfski companies have better options for PDFs

I have not tried these, but they seem much better designed

Been using the Vaikobi PFD for few years now. very low profile and with Back pocket for Hydration (up to 3 Liter)
Very light and highly adjustable. Pockets are useful but for light use, otherwise wear and tear is quick.

Just ordered the V3 so hopefully they improved that weak point.

This is the one to watch.  DJI guys are wizards.

https://www.dji.com/osmo-action

Many boards have a GoPro mount built into it so one can attach a GoPro camera. I went all over that site to see if I could find if this camera could be attached into a GoPro Mount. I did not find any info on this.

When I looked at the young woman underwater on her surfboard, in a segment of the sample video, I noticed this camera looked like it was being held in place onto the top of the board by a flat suction (cup?) type of device. If this is the case, then this is an automatic deal breaker for me.

It uses the same GoPro mount style. It's included in the box.

Had a DW run on the 14x27. messy conditions, full winter gear 200LB+
This is a fun board for sure, a good, stable fin like the LA Spartan for DW is key.

My choice would be a cruse control

Sorry man
:) :)

The Naish Nalu 11-0 is another board that should definitely *not* be considered here.

But Iíd love to have one, for my newbie friends, and then I could use it for surf too.

The Nalu is a sure crowd pleaser and should definitely *not* be considered here just as the Cruise Control
which could probably be considered as the Swiss Army Knife of Sups and therefor should definitely, without a question
*not* be considered here. I'd love to have one for my friends and family.

Foil SUP / Re: Downwind Foiling Pop Up Tips
« on: May 09, 2019, 01:11:53 PM »
That would be awesome!
Do you think a different wing setup would be better for flat water popup than the usual one you're using for surf or downwind?
If yes, which setup works better? Thx

Have a electronic key fob measures 9.5 x3.5 cm

I've used this thing: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B076BF2YD6/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Works well, I think you'd be able to stick it in there with just a little angle.

"what does the key mean". No one would steal my truck but they might take the stuff inside...

And put it on bricks while at it ;D I've seen it
