ZOO.... Think Corolla in the fall. The surf changes quickly in NC,esp. Wilmington etc. Atlantic Beach can be good,but what cams show will be different by the time you drive there. Just go...think street racer= Run what you brung........A long board will always be a safe bet.

I don't understand how people that can't swim can rent a SUP. It blows my mind. The first question I ask people after they book a lesson with me is if they can swim. I know people can lie but if I couldn't swim, the last thing I would want to do is try a new water activity.

I'm 66 yrs old and been paddling since2008. I've had 7 boards and have 3 now I've kept. I can't swim the length of the shortest  board  ;D.  I never go paddling without my leash securely wrapped on my leg. I use a little common sense on when and where to paddle and never had a problem. I've always paddled alone and had no one to teach me how to paddleboard but I've never come close to having a problem on the water... LEASH UP ;)
Hanasurf sounds like a name that would be chosen by somebody that A) lives in Maui, and B) knows how to surf, I don't know, but it sounds suspicious.  Is this post really honest?
If not, what's the point?  A weak attempt at humor?
If true, it sounds like you're bragging, bragging about what exactly, poor judgement?  If so you've just been lucky so far, and it would be something that if it was me, I wouldn't be bragging about, but instead doing something about so that I can enjoy my own life in safety.
Sorry if this sounds harsh, but I'm a former ocean lifeguard, and I can't figure out the sanity behind this post.

Sorry for late reply but been on road all day to Florida to visit my daughter and grandkids. When I tried to register here it kept rejecting me,then I saw a post that said name had be associated with SUP. I had a Pau Hana Big Easy so I used HANA and added SURF...registered.  I live at Outer Banks in NC.wish I could afford Maui ;D I grew up inland on a lake and waterskied(I wear Ski Vest] my whole life but never surfed. I've tried many times to learn to swim but I never have been able too. Doggy paddle for a minute or o but that's it. As a life guard you are probably correct about this not being the best hobby for me. When I was young the life guards at the city pool would not let me jump off the diving board or go in deep end of pool so I quit going to pool. Istill waterskied from 10yrs old to 42 yrs old.  I only tour on SUPs in ICW and rivers and creeks that dump into the ICW here. I do DownBreezers on ICW with my SIC F14 Wide and tour on a Riviera Voyager. Both super stable and i go on nice days. I fell a lot teaching myself to SUP but on these boards I haven't fallen in years but if I do I pull back to me with leash and get back on. I can Doggy Paddle a minute or so but then I will sink ,can't float. I wear a NRS Ninja life jacket when the water gets cold but only then. I guess it's not smart but I love it,I'm 66 and gonna die sometime.....my wife and 2 daughters fuss at me all the time :(  I really wasn't bragging,I was saying I ALWAYS wear my leash and it's worked for me for over 8 years....it will work for anyone that will wear one.

You should see me trying to surf a paddleboard. Hell,even sharks are afraid to get near me  ;D   I finally reconciled to long tours and doing downwinders on my F14 and just call it surfing !!!

I almost forgot... Yes DavidJohn those are Crocs on the front...Never leave home without them  ;D    Crocs just came out with new watershoe,the Swiftwater Wave. I really love them for paddling,much better arch support for paddling long distances.

I agree the blue with Mahogany wood looks great. couple pics of mine.

Definitely do a review. I'm interested in how the squared off tail performs. I'm gonna keep my eyes open for a end of year deal on a wooden classic.

I have to agree with Floridawindsup on the Riviera. I have one with the rounded tail(older model) and love it. I tour on it 3 to4 times a week and go some fairly long sessions. I've had my wife on front and she's almost 2 times the weight of your child.
 The newer model Classic is lighter and more stable with the squared off tail. I sometimes think about getting a classic even though I have the standard model. I like it.

Thanks for this vid. I keep saying I need to put RSPro on all my SUP's. This makes it look easy and foolproof.
  LOVE the MUSIC
