Random / Goggles and masks?
« on: June 12, 2019, 04:15:03 PM »
Can anyone suggest good goggles or masks for ocean use?  Next time I’m at the beach, I want to do some underwater exploration.  Polarized would be a big plus.

Gear Talk / Another Ke Nalu Blade Thread
« on: May 28, 2019, 07:24:35 PM »
I’m looking for a blade that is very forgiving on the shoulders.  Can I get input on the Elite Wiki 74 vs the Mana 82 vs the Konihi 84 (which I have but might trade).  What are the weight differences?  Which blades require the more perfect technique?
Thanks in advance!

Gear Talk / Jimmy Lewis Cruise Control 11’
« on: May 19, 2019, 10:32:08 AM »
I don‘t have an on-the-water report yet, but I did get the rail tape on my new board.  No big deal, I know, but for me it is!  😄😄. We had a blackberry winter, then I had to work, so it took a week for me to have time to do it.  It’s not a perfect job, which bothers me, BUT no one else will notice u less they’re really looking.  The worst thing is that I couldn’t get out a smal black hair (darn cat) that’s pretty close to the “J” in Jimmy Lewis.  Aaarrrgghh!  I, of course, will see it EVERY time I look at the board!  Maybe the little hair personalizes the board?  Although the tape isn’t on there perfectly, I know it will provide some bit of protection so I can take it out now.  Probably tomorrow.  If it paddles as good as it looks, I’ll be stoked!

Classifieds / WTB—KeNalu xtuff shaft
« on: April 19, 2019, 02:54:17 AM »
Hey, I’m looking for an xtuff (not xtuff-s) shaft, if anyone has an extra they don’t need.  Asking for my shoulders.  Thanks!

Random / Zoners near Norfolk?

Are any of you close to Norfolk?  There’s a board there I’d like to get checked out.


Gear Talk / Roof transport in summer
« on: March 14, 2019, 02:50:51 PM »
Have any of you ever transported your board on the car roof for long distances in the summer?  Thinking about cross-country trips, when it can get blazing hot.  Are there any super-protective board bags as far as heat protection?

Gear Talk / Thin rails, not for surfing
« on: February 17, 2019, 11:01:07 AM »
Can anyone advise me on a board similar to a Sunova Search?  I love the thin rails on that board, but I need a less expensive option.  I like being being a little lower in the water, not bobbing too much, if you know what I mean.  Thanks in advance!

SouthEast / PaddlePalooza at Cape Hatteras
« on: May 18, 2018, 03:07:48 PM »
Are any Zoners going?  June 2-3 in Avon at the OBX.  I’d like to go, but I’ll just be getting back to WNC in the end of May, and might not be able to make it.

Gear Talk / Shortening a Ke Nalu paddle
« on: May 15, 2018, 05:03:55 PM »
How have you guys shortened your Ke Nalus to 71-ish inches?  How do I do it if all their shafts are tapered?  Thanks for your help!

Sunova SUP / Search 14 and 12
« on: May 10, 2018, 12:13:35 PM »
I was lucky enough to paddle supthecreek’s Search 14 when I visited him last summer.  I liked that board on the inland water.  Has anyone here paddled the 12?  I think the 14 might be too much board for me, but the 12 might be something worth saving for.

Gear Talk / Wiki vs Mana vs Konihi vs Ho’oloa

Will the experts on Ke Nalu blades give me a rundown on the differences between these blades?  I can’t find details on the website.  Thanks!

Classifieds / WTB: Paddle
« on: April 27, 2018, 07:53:39 PM »
Does anyone have an all-carbon or carbon shaft/fiberglass blade paddle that you no longer need?  Adjustable going down to 70”, or maybe a fixed around 72”?  I have a limited budget.  Currently in Seattle, but heading to western NC in a few weeks.  Thanks!

General Discussion / Recommend SUP dealers in mid-Atlantic?
« on: April 12, 2018, 01:46:55 PM »
Can anyone recommend some great shops in sort of the expanded mid-Atlantic area?  I’m looking for a large selection with good customer support.  Thanks!

Ke Nalu / Info Needed
« on: May 22, 2017, 02:54:58 PM »
Could anyone explain the differences between Ke Nalu products?  Shafts--- 100, 90' xtuff, xtuff(s), etc.  Blades--- Elite, Wiki, etc etc.
Now that supthecreek has shown me how easy it is to use the hot glue method, I will want a new paddle in the future.  74 blade, flexible shaft for old shoulders, a smaller shaft maybe for small hands.
I can't find the detailed info I need on Ke Nalu's website.  Thanks!
