Creek, I always enjoy your videos, and as OceanAddict said, having  naturall Sounds  is great. I often cut the sound with surf vid but never with yours. Iím already waiting for the next one. Thanks

Wingsurfing, Windfoiling, Wingfoiling, Wing SUP / Re: Wind wing sand cart

I found in my sandsailing efforts that long is better. My best board was a long wood one (probably six feet) that I bought from Bob Reuter at Gorge Performance probably in the late 80's. Geez, I've known Reuter a long time. It was made in France and had large diameter plastic wheels with white tires.
Yes Pono, thatís a ę Speedsail Ľ,  created by Arnaud de Rosnay in 1977.

Itís true, hard boards last longer and can be repaired. I donít know if Iíll buy again an iSUP despite it has its merits, especially why you donít own a car. Anyway 5 years at the gym would have cost me much more than a SUP and paddle.

Already recycled as floor mats for my workshop.

Yes Talldude, itís strange both blew up at the same time but I used a brand new red paddle pump I bought 3 days before and inflated boards slowly no to ruin the new pump as I did before ... I used one board maybe 100 times and the other one was given to me as rubbish (and I used it x10 times), so I have no reason to complain.

These threads often break like that?

Gear Talk / Lost 2 iSUP the same day
« on: August 21, 2019, 05:38:16 AM »
Last Sunday was hot and sunny. I took to the beach my 2 ISUP that I barely use recently . I first inflated my 2013 Naish  to 15psi (14 recommended). While I was inflating the second board, a Fanatic from 2014, the Naish blew up, it has a 15cm tears on the rail. I was joking about it and how lucky I was that girl who wanted to try SUP finally didnít join when the second board also blew up. The recommended pressure is 22 but I stopped at 15psi. The Fanatic apparently had all the treads from the back of the board breaking at the same time, giving an interesting shape.

Lotís of interesting things have been said, but little about Balsa race /touring boards. 
Iím no expert but I own a sunova allwater 14í since 2018, I have the same compression where I stand, I didnít like it when I first noticed but it doesnít evolve now and thereís no delam neither noticeable weight change. That board is lighter than my old 12í6  nsp. I love my Sunova Allwater. I see my Sunova more like a racing car than a Volvo. Of course you should check weight/dents but it should be fine.

I have a Sunova allwater with the same drain hole system and it does work well, in fact itís so efficient that you forget about it .

Foil SUP / Re: Mr. Fugly gets Tracks and other stuff
« on: May 24, 2019, 02:23:05 AM »
Easy, you mounted the foil the wrong way, it should be bellow the board and not on top of it, right.
You should open a Ponomuseum!

Gear Talk / Re: Windsurfing on a Sunova Creek
« on: April 13, 2019, 05:50:57 PM »
The 9í1 Creek  is 136l it should be fine if youíre in the average weight. I never tried the Creek  but Iíve more windsurfed my Speeed (8í3?) than used it as a SUP, itís great, easy to jibe, very stable, great acceleration but tail rocker makes it impossible to plane (i planed few times but when overpowered it usually ends with a spin out).
Rails (the Speeed is quite parallel) really help while upwind.
Iím 86kg and usually use a 5.8 or 6.5 m2 sail.
Second hand is the way to go but old gear breaks quickly!

General Discussion / Re: SUP racing growing ? Uhm.....

What happened to the big name racers like booty and the girls. I heard the drug testers were there to keep things honest.

I think budgets might have played a part for quite a few racers as i am sure budgets are a little tighter this year. Might be a factor in a few races this year!
After what happened last year itís easy to understand why M.Booth wasnít there...

Iím sure the fact that there were drug tests as nothing to do with the absence of some big names.

Steeve Teihotaata wrote on FB that he collapsed close to the finish line, he had no more water before the first half of the race. I donít think the fact he rode a dugout as much to do with his failing.

Flatwater and Touring / Re: Long distance adventure touring
« on: April 07, 2019, 01:29:36 AM »
Funny, I was thinking to start a thread like this one on multiple days expeditions. Iím planning to do almost the same thing as Robert ę Blue planet Ľ did, circumnavigation around an island (here in Japan), something like 200km...
there are so many ways to do long expeditions, some do it slowly and take time to explore, some have support, others donít... i want to do it without support, on my sunova allwater 14x25í5...

Sessions / Re: Okinawa Zampa Morning Session

Hi Okiwild
Nice to have videos from Okinawa. I paddle in Kansai /Shikoku area. Last time i was in Okinawa 6 or 7 years ago I couldnít find anybody on a SUP or any rental place. As you said things change.
