The Shape Shack / EPS Breather layer....Pono jrandy?
« on: January 12, 2019, 09:34:57 AM »
Pono , jrandy or other....

Were you saying that EPS sheets can work well as a breather layer?     I have plenty of 5/16 sheets lying around.   Was using quilting material, butthe eps is tempting as easier to work with maybe

If so, can it wrap rails and angles?.... Obviously when it's dry it just crumbles when flexed, but i guess it can make some bends when pulled down

The Shape Shack / Divinycell OVER fiberglass skin?
« on: December 09, 2018, 08:02:51 AM »
Wanting to change to a flatter rocker on a conversion to foilboard

Planning to tack a divinycell wedge (to flatten rocker) down to the sanded existing skin, and then vac it down with a covering layer of carbon/glass

Was going to tack it with maybe just contact cement spray ...or gorilla glue as the strength will come from the new skin....just need it steady while fairing it

Stripping the pre-existing bottom skin would save weight, but then I'd have to fair up a bigger mess with more pockets and tack the diviynicell to beat up foam

Thoughts?   TIA

The Shape Shack / dropping an Abox fin into a Futures box
« on: July 24, 2018, 06:59:17 AM »
Need a center fin that's slightly larger than any available Futures  (maybe 6")

Have plenty o fins, and thinking of cutting/grinding  one down to a Futures insert template.....

Can live with the thought that I might blow out the box.

Any thoughts suggestions tips?

Bombogenesis about to occur on East Coast, and may be a bit too much, but for winter stoke...can't beat this movie

Trailer is maybe not awesome, but the film is great...Beautiful cinematography...good stoke story

Technique / paddle as hand plane
« on: December 03, 2017, 05:00:59 PM »
 Leash plug pulled out....swam with the paddle again....

I am getting used to swimming with the blade first, and trailing the handle.....................

counter- intuitive ......It's still a pain i the ass, but easier to stroke with, and then if you get a white water boost, it is MUCH easier to use as hand plane body surf,  and gain ground Vs trailing the blade   Last time i did it, was almost by accident.  This was a consious decision, and i will use this from now on
Short paddle and small blade help

Plug was on Laird hybrid....the epoxy does not appear to have penetrated the shelf on the plug, and may have been dropped in too late during the cure

Hope you don't ever have to try it :)

General Discussion / Let Downs...and Wash outs
« on: October 05, 2017, 05:51:00 AM »
Emotional ones...

Just wondering how big a factor this is for the rest of you guys...

It was such a run of great surf on the East Coast for the month of September, that I really am having a bit trouble re-orienting to normal life....I am getting it done, not depressed, but definitely  disoriented

There are some areas where swell events have a predictability, but especially with Maria, breaks here were firing like they never have, and may never again.... consistently, for daze

I suppose it will pass...I windsurfed yesterday in some pretty fun  "Normal" conditions.   

The other thing that I was trying to pay attention to this year was the adrenaline washout which seems to hit me mid session on bigger days...you get all pumped and twitchy, but then after a few waves, the rhythm establishes itself, and somehow it can seem like a letdown no matter how good it is.

I guess I'm just grateful, but fascinated at all of the emotional aspect of it... I feel like I should change my perspective a bit

I do plan to go south this winter to do a little rebuilding.....I shoveled plenty of mud on Staten Island after Sandy, and it helped

Well, Our own Mr Big ....Who was found face down in the water ...what a year or two ago?,    with CPR revival....pacemaker and defibrillator now :in place, had another "brush" this am:

Mid tide plenty of light, and the shark picks him as the first bonafide attack of the 2017 season....Kicking off a Cape Cod media frenzy

Dude has a degree in Theology...must have gotten straight A's  !!!

Get's a Wall- Hanger out of the deal too  !!!!

I tried to surf Marconi this pm.....get there as the tides dropping....5 news trucks in the parking lot, and it would have been painful to try and dodge the media to get some knee high, so i went to another break

Biggie...Don't sell yourself short....you get 15 minutes of fame.....!   $10,000 per Entertainment tonite type interview....Have them fly you to the Today show   I'll be your agent

NorthEast / Happy hunting for Gert
« on: August 15, 2017, 05:31:16 AM »
Well...it will be interesting....between the tide, pulse, and the wind

I think I usually am pretty good with picking wind windows, but the models make the Rhody Vs Home debate a big one for tomorrow with a few hours, and a few mph making or breakin

Just don't spend the day driving and wondering!

Carnage to be had ... glad to be out of the knee high category

NorthEast / The Stairs
« on: May 15, 2017, 08:13:30 AM »
Anyone holding out hope on the Marconi stairs?....better find another way

I biked in there this weekend.  Absolutely no work in progress...timber left over from the takedown storm.
There are survey flags down as if they will have to chunk into the cliff 20 yards north of the prior steps.

Cliff face looks too steep to trust.  No heavy equipment in parking lot...nothing

A parkee said they are hoping for July 4th, but has a ghost town look.

Gear Talk / Yater Spoon
« on: April 04, 2017, 06:35:17 AM »
Ok totally random, but I respect the opinions rendered on this forum  (a lot of the time)

I have had a long standing lust of the Yater Spoon, mostly just from rubbing the rails....may finally pull the trigger, as I know where there's one a sleeping...$$

I understand that this is a sup forum, but would appreciate any rider feedback....the racks on the shed are full, so this buy is maybe a bit selfish, but I figure that I could milk that board for another 20 years

You know the full-sleeved undershirt with hood-type that  ups you from a 3/2 to a hooded 4/3??

I know there was a morning sesh crew, i hit the afternoon.

Rashie was on the fence,   I thought about leaving it, but it might not have survived .

I have it if you know who's it is, but headed out of town thru weekend

waves had some crunch...but nice walls in the pm
