...F U FedEX!!  >:( :D
My feelings also. They lost the title to my newly acquired xr1200 I purchased in April. Seller in
VA, dealer in Oregon and I live in Ca. What a mess. Need to apply for my third temporary.

Nice to be back. I just broke some ribs getting hit by point break. I will be out of water for a time. It was my
wave going in after an awesome session. Smallest wave did it and the only time I fell entire session. It sucks but
stuff happens.

I also one wheel. After day five, I woke up in emergency room getting 10 staples. I was on asphalt
with soft hat. I now wear armor and helmet and pretty much do it on harder sand at low tide. It is
awesome but your going to kiss the ground so it is best to dress for it. Its way cheaper than hospital bills and more
time out. I use bicycle helmet, fox titan upper body armor that includes spine, chest, shoulder and elbow. I also have
football player type shorts that includes knee, thigh, hip and tail bone. I might look like warrior when doing
it, but I bounce up without injury.  Even after having one wheel for years and am on my second one an xr,
I would not even consider doing it without armor on. Check out one wheel forum for more information.
Not telling you what to do. Just my experience and that of many others.

So now with waiting period of ribs healing, I have to put aside surfing, one wheeling, dirt bike riding, lifting
sneezing, deep breaths and farting. My fourth time breaking ribs and it sucks but I know the drill.

Best of luck to you. Try going in reverse which would be switch stance. You get the watch the
waves and pretend you are carving both directions while watching waves.

I was going to wait until it maximized at 70. I am almost 68 1/2. I think my
life expectancy has just been reduced.  I am still enjoying my
tax practice, so not thinking of retiring soon.  Surfing still a priority and never enough
time for it. Its just not consistent enough around here.
What to do?

Good time to get some honey do's done.
Earn some brown eye points. It will be over soon
enough. Just don't tear them until recovered or
you get to start all over.

Did the same a few years ago surfing where back foot slipped of back of board going fast.
Board squirted forward with foot still on it. Back foot held in place by water. Ouch.
Black and blue from below knee to buttock.
A month later on a nice day I two days in a row caused the healing to tear again, surfing.
Another ouch. Finally got to talk with client doctor. Regular docs had me waiting two months for
appointment so no help with advise or pain. Client doc told me to stay off for two months. Then
take it easy. Injury happened on October. Retore in November. Had to wait for injury to heal.
Did not surf again until April. Still hurt but no more tearing. A few years later-no problem.

Stay off it until it heals. Doc told me if I keep injuring it, It may never get better.
I am not a doc or medical professional. Telling you about my experience.
I hope you have complete recovery.

SUP General / Re: MY BILLION$$ STARBOARD IS A POS
« on: December 15, 2019, 05:57:48 AM »
I had two high end carbon surf sup delivered with leaks. Both were
replaced with new stock even though I did not pay even close to full
retail.
All it took was working with my local surf shop. Starboard came
thru with class.
Glad it worked out for you EB.

Random / Re: Electric Surf Vehicles in 2020

I just picked up a new volt for 20k after tax credits. May take a little conversion
for surf vehicle. I also have a bolt. Its a great car but range is limiting. I prefer the
ICE as a backup. Went to Portland last weekend which is something a bolt with 280 mile range would take
a while to do. Not interested in waiting for recharge.

The volt covers my local needs with electricity and my travel needs with fuel. I just gotta
figure a rack system but the rear door opens and my board should fit. I don't care as I live
most the year at the beach.

My experience with electric cars is their value drops faster than your principle reduction of a monthly payment.
This makes for a buying opportunity for a great used electric vehicle. I see used volts for 10K. That should
pay for its self with fuel savings.

I would love the VW van, I had one for many years. I would not love the hole in the wallet and
rapid depreciation.

This year for 8 months, walk across the street, down along the jetty and then paddle to best surf
within mile or so. I have been doing this for 4 years. Have reservation for next year already.
Office is around mile and half to surf spot. Can see out front door the harbor entrance.
Home is three or four miles. Depends on which beach.

I surf so much more by having trailer parked at beach over half of year as compared to
surfing from home or office. Some times I get more than one session. Sometimes the
wind shifts from south to north and being on beach I am on it, when at home I would have
missed chance.

Price to keep trailer on beach is well worth it. How much is extra opportunity to
surf worth?

Its called humble pie and there is plenty enough for all in wind sports.

Pono your welcome. I know you will do something worthy with
the cyclone.

And yes it was cold Sunday. I took grandson hunting and we drove in on dry
roads and out in a blizzard on snow covered roads. Really scary mountain roads over 4500 ft elevation
with 1000 ft drop offs on roads barely wide enough for my truck. Going downhill
was even scarier.

But yesterday I surfed for 3 hours in nice sunny conditions. I love it here.

I used mine exclusively since received.  Often I paddle a mile down the beach to surf.
It works in small and large. I have had it out in waves twice the size of waves in the video.
Sooo good. Stand over the fins and she really turns nice. I kept mine as quad.
Last session was the best since like 04/01. I was a pig dog and surfed over 4 hours.
Love this board. Can't wait for over use injury to settle down then back at it.

You just might want to put an order in so more are made. Mine is not for sale.

Got a friend who dances (more freestyle) on his boards.
His problem has been dancing on the plugs and then they leak.
His deck is totally dented and boards are full of water.

I am selling him a couple of used carbon built boards with no plugs, that I surfed
for a few years. No deck dents.

Build quality is so important.

Yeah Pono I think its a cyclone. Bought from Luna.
I am going to be in Mt Hood area 3rd week this month. I can deliver or
mail. If cards line up, it would be nice to get wet.

I plug in batteries separately. My connector is xt-90. Had to make
a charging harness for each. Simple plug and play. Hakko iron
works so well.

I will post a picture of bike later.
