SUP General / Re: Forward Stroke
« on: May 03, 2023, 03:52:30 PM »
I don't come on this site very much anymore as it seems to be mostly about Wings and Wing Surfing now. I suppose that's OK, as I understand that things evolve.

I don't come on here as much either for the same reason. Nothing against foiling (I hope to take lessons at some point) and there's been some great posts about it on here, but it's not so much an evolution as it is a whole separate sport. Well at least wing foiling.

It only makes sense since modern day SUPing IS more or less an offshoot of longboarding.

Downwind and Racing / Re: Anybody into SUP Racing? Downwind/Flat?
« on: April 07, 2023, 04:22:12 PM »
SUP racing was already in a bit of decline well before wing foiling took off. I think like all other sports that go through an explosive growth period, things cooled off after a few years. In my area, SUP is very much alive and well as far as a way for people to tool around in the water. Surfing and racing have dropped off significantly but still common. Definitely not gone the way of rollerblading, tho that seems to be making a comeback.

I am not sure what happened to Mark??

For a long time he was shaping boards and I think owned his own shop. Not sure if that's still the case.

And with all the generic 80s background music cheesiness to boot.

Okay not foil or wing. Old fashioned windsurfing from the 80s: https://youtu.be/lCq97KR2f5Q

Obviously people still are but the glory days are over. Including foil is dependent on place and conditions.

Random / Re: Omicron is here
« on: January 18, 2022, 05:31:50 PM »
My wife and I are both vaxed and boostered and we both got Covid late December. Due to us having all three shots, at worse it felt like a bad cold or semi bad flu. The shots may not prevent one from catching the latests variant, but they keep you out of the hospital.
I work on a Navy base and the leadership as been very upfront about the fact  they haven't done the greatest job in preventing the spread. As things are now, if someone tests positive and is fully vaxed up and boostered, they only have to isolate for 5 days and if they feel better by that point, they will return back to work.

I think more than anything else, more women go out and do outdoor sports than in times past. If windsurfing had stayed as popular is it did during its peak, I think there'd be a much higher percentage of women windsurfers than in times past. Either way, this is a good thing. I wish more women would join the Zone.

Foil SUP / Re: Pacasmayo - Laird Hamilton 2021
« on: September 01, 2021, 07:27:12 AM »
Laird's riding is nowhere near as impressive or aesthetic as the top riders I see these days (to my eye), but the wave looks absolutely amazing.  His board looks a lot like the boards we were riding 3 years ago, I'm surprised to see that.  Thanks for sharing the video, cool to see.
Laird throughout his whole career was never a top rider, something he would be the first to tell you (which he has said as much in interviews). Being a top rider was never something he was interested in. He dropped out of the ASP tour by the late 80s due to the fact he could not (and was not interested in) surfing that way (traditional shortboard ripper). His interests at the time were more in big waves which eventually led to experimenting with tow in and also foils (he was foiling in the 90s). Also he enjoyed traditional longboarding even before it became accepted. And of course SUP. Even as a SUP pioneer he was never interested in the competitive aspect or gravitating towards the more shortboard style of riders like the Vaz brothers. Experimenting with alternative forms of surfing was always his forte, so to say his riding isn't has impressive as the current top riders is kind of missing the point.
