Foil SUP / If you ride strapless...
« on: October 11, 2018, 04:53:58 AM »
This appeared in my timeline this morning. I had to share because itís a flawless example of foot placement for strapless foilers. The offsets give the leverage and control needed without using straps. Kitechino is pro level foil racer. Iíve always used this placement. Itís just instincts for anyone whoís foiled a long time strapless.

Foil SUP / I saw the future of foiling today
« on: January 28, 2018, 04:38:29 PM »


Austin Kalama is here in Florida right now. I watched him prone Foil, then when conditions were right for switching to SUP foil, he switched.

Video doesnít do it justice. His speed on the wave, was like nothing Iíve seen before (unless a kite was involved). Then the flips, even going back out he flipped and landed it.

There was a time I was envious of those prone foiling. Not anymore. What he did on a SUP was so much more impressive.




Sorry about the quality.  Shot with zoom on iPhone. My camera battery was dead when I got the call he was foiling my home spot.

They show the full range here. Interesting they have a SUP foil and prone surf foil, different wings. All interchangeable with new windsurfing foil and previous kite foil.

I haven't found price of SUP foil yet, but windsurf foil is $1049.

General Discussion / Leash-less Surfing

This is what it feels like with a waist leash. My wife with her waist leash. It may look funny today, but soon it may look normal, as more discover how nice they are.

Random / ApplePay
« on: November 06, 2014, 03:56:27 PM »
Had first experience with it today by accident. I was checking out at Home Depot. I opened my wallet/iPhone case to pull out my credit card and to my surprise the ApplePay app was launched and open. 

I looked at the terminal. It looked like the same old type. Didn't see the NFC dashboard you see on some terminals. I thought what the heck, put my finger on the button.  It dinged and receipt printed out. The cashier was as shocked as I was. She had never seen that before.

My receipt shows the random generated CC number. Not my real CC number. Pretty friggin awesome because Home Depots prior CC breach caused my last CC to be replaced.

It feels so much safer knowing merchants won't know my real CC number. We need all merchants using it. I've had my CCs replaced 5 times. I'm sick of fraud.

The Shape Shack / ProBox Larry Finbox Destructive Test
« on: July 14, 2013, 10:16:18 AM »
The quick and dirty test.

1.35 lb EPS from Carpenter
2 layers 4 oz S
Didn't even do a nice hot coat. Just a quick wetout of 2 layers.
Let sit for several weeks before sanding.

Hit each fin with a sledge hammer. Each blow stronger than the next until a failure showed. It took maybe 5 blows for each.

Probox never failed. The fin broke. The way you want it.
The FCS Fusion finbox failed before the fin. Bad!

Mark is on Howard Stern this morning. He just said his investment in Tower was one his best from the TV show Shark Tank.

Tower went from 18,000/month to 2.1 million a year and expect to hit 3 million next year.

WOW.

Wind Powered / I've seen the LIGHT
« on: May 07, 2012, 09:59:16 AM »
The wife and I went back in time this weekend. A friend loaned us his 11'3 Mistral SUPs.
Simple things, like a longboard tack, is fun. Catching a wave is fun again.

I am so tired of all our gear being high performance. It left us with nothing to do on beautiful days, that lacked waves or wind. These 11'3s cured that!

One pump and caught it.


Simple pleasures.
