Gear Talk / Re: Sup Paddle fpr surf advice

Werner Rip stik and ke nalu Mana are at the top of my list.  I'm still rocking an OG ke nalu maliko xtuf and haven't switched yet.

Gear Talk / Re: What is a 2017 Naish Mad Dog Bare Bones 8"1 x 29 SUP worth?
« on: November 15, 2020, 10:18:23 AM »
I'm sure I overlooked a lot of details because the posts are too long for my ADD.
In that pic, that blue fin. Ditch it, the board won't pivot with that fin. I rode it on a 9' clmb Hobie raw and it's not a fin for surfing.  You have gl fins. Run the smallest ones you have.  I run a gl thruster set in my 9'9 imagine and it makes a huge difference.  If you still can't pivot or make a bottom turn with those fins, I'm sorry but it's extremely unlikely that changing the board is going to help.  It sounds like there is a lot of room to grow with the board you have.
When I dropped down to a 100L board I found I lost a lot of glide, had a tippier board and it was a lot more difficult to catch waves and the ride quality on wave wasn't much better for intermediate skills.
If money is tight save your money.  Taking up kiting was a great suggestion.
I just took a closer look at that 10'6 and it's a good looking shape. Nice rails, nice tail, good rocker.  Ride it with smaller fins. Practice your pivot turn. Move center fin more to middle or front of box. Stop trying to catch a wave going down the line. Go straight down the wave face, when you feel that jolt of speed from going from top to bottom and you're out in the flats, then carry that speed back up to the top.  Surf top to bottom, not cruising down the line in the middle of the face with no speed and power to do anything.
Look around the 2min Mark here. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Xv5vEma62o8
Seems like a similar board to yours and it's plenty lively with the right fins I think you'll be happier

Foil SUP / Re: Wing Drifter Pro?
« on: November 13, 2020, 06:21:48 PM »
Great info Dave, thanks! I'm definitely seeing how a flatter bottom or even a single like the Armstrong could be a better design than the quad.  I don't know how noticeable these differences would be.  Can't beat the price, that's for sure.

Thanks DJ! Know anyone supping them? I suppose you're flying the s25 hover wing sup?

Hey winddoctor, great suggestion thanks.  I'd love to hear feedback on the wing drifter if you get a chance to check it out.

NJkiter, thanks for the data point.  That's the analysis I'm trying to run through my head.  Slightly bigger board will be easier to learn but how soon until I want something smaller vs, how much struggle to learn on smaller board.

I'd definitely be looking forward to any extra glide I could get but that 6.0 looks quite a bit larger than the 5.8.

Any feedback on the strap placements for sup would be interesting too as they seem offset for winging and maybe not ideal for sup foiling?

Thanks again!

Foil SUP / Wing Drifter Pro?
« on: November 11, 2020, 03:56:17 PM »
Hey Guys,
Trying to get into foiling, prone and sup and looking for a board that will sup and wing well.  The new quatro wing drifter pro looks like it could be a great wing board that sups okay.  Not sure if anyone has any sup experience with this board or type of board - short, fat and quad concave.  I'd be looking to foil smaller surf with the 5'8 @ 115L which is about the volume I normally sup surf.
Thanks in advance for any advice.

That same scale o' justice works for water vs. beer. Only it's "tastes amazing".

I totally agree but since beer is about 95% water...  Wait, why do I even drink water?

I like the gorilla glue/foam suggestions, but I'm curious as to the advantage over using the ding stick as a filler like boardlady recommends and like that guy used in the video I posted earlier.

Is it just a weight thing?  If there was a big enough chunk of foam missing, then sure, I wouldn't stuff pounds of putty in there, but for dings like this, I assume pretty much all the foam is still there and could easily be filled with putty and sanded, right?

Not trying to derail the thread at all, just curious and seems applicable in this case as the OP has about as much ding repair experience as I do  ;D

yeah, compared to the damage to this board, I think yours should be smooth sailing.  can't really make it any worse too, give it a go.

It depends on the foamy, I suppose. I have ridden the Costco wavestorm boards and they hold up fine. All boards will get some pressures.
I would actually very strongly recommend an nsp surfboard. They have good strong midlength shapes as well as the torque boards and the price point is great.  CL usually has a ton of deals

Volume shock is subjective.  If you had a blast on a foamie, I'd get and surf a foamie.  Nice and durable, safe, and cheap!
I have had buddies with construction issues with 7s.  Most Firewires are good.  I'd get a surftech board designed by a reputable shaper so that the resale would be good too.  Get a Robert August or Donald Takayama surftech.  Nice and durable and surf well enough.
Just like with sup, you'll get more glide and earlier entry from a longer board so not sure why you'd rule out a longboard.
Just like with sup advice, we'd need more info like your size, experience and type of waves you surf.

I actually don't need to get $500 out of it.  I'll do $400 for a Zoner.   I thought my boys would be ready to play around on this, but they're not as into it as I had hoped.

Hey Guys,
I hope it's okay to just link to a CL post I have.  I'd like to get $500 from a Zoner.  Let me know if you're interested.
