Is it nuts to think I could try to learn to wingfoil, with no prior foil experience?

Just wondering--you effing darkside people!!!  grrr, im feeling poorer just thinking about this....

I was an intermediate WS'er, never in waves, but down to a 4.0 often, hitting 60% of my jibes. had a great time a few years back when, after a long hiatus i rented gear at lake arenal. wow had the gear improved--easier waterstarts, instant plane, better balanced sails harnesses etc.

But really, it looks more doable with the wing than trying to time little waves. And I aint got no boat...or friends....with boats....

surely none of you darksiders have an opinion about this

creased my mana blade, when i thought it a good idea to roll in the rocks at a point break in RI--moron!

i am repairing my board---uggh

but im too time-constrained to fix this blade, tho it would be fun

want it, pm me and ill send i to you--with some strategic epoxying, clamping, and sanding can be good as new, without increasing much weight

and given what i just paid for the replacement, somebody out there shd be incented to try this

General Discussion / OAM Boehne Blur Pad
« on: August 20, 2019, 08:42:30 AM »
just ordered one to clean up my crappy piecemeal job on my portal

pricey, but it looks like a great pad to me--and wont need any incompetent cutting by me--lay it out and stick it on!

gotta get the piecemeal pads off--i seem to recall a post where the poster said best to carefully pull off as much of the pad as possible, then pool goo-gone on the gluey/foamy mess, cover with saran wrap and leave overnight---sounds good

if youve a better way, pls share

and if youve experience with this pad, love to hear about it

General Discussion / O'Neill Loyalist Disappointed
« on: July 09, 2019, 10:22:44 AM »
So my O'Neill TB3 psychofreak 4/3, new in late 2016, worn maybe 20 times, saved my ass, literally--from a fin cut just above my coccyx---sliced the suit to a clean 2 in cut--my skin had a good cut, not deep enough for stitches---i love the suit and love that it saved my ass.

So I sent the suit for repair and was told by O'Neill that this suit, with its seams, could not be repaired. O'neill repairs by detaching seams and removing/replacing the damaged panel. They will not repair a panel, they will only replace. Seems like a good approach.....

Except that, with my suit, O'Neill used a seam technique/glue that wont allow them to detach and replace the panel--so I asked for advice re what to do with this otherwise excellent, fairly new O'Neill suit.

The O'Neill repair guy told me to throw the suit out or, preferably, recycle it. I was a bit surprised, and wondered if my 35 year support of O'Neill, including touting their product here, might have been ill-conceived.

Were my suit still under warranty, I'd go nuts. But im also of the opinion that, if O"Neill knows they produced a bunch of suits that can never be repaired, based on a briefly used seam glue technique that was abandoned quickly--because it doesnt allow for repair..........O'Neill shd do better than to tell me my suit, which would live on if repaired, shd be thrown out or recycled.

So I vent---and wont need a new 4/3 til Fall, but when i go to replace this suit (or any suit booties gloves boardshorts, etc) I will resent buying anything additional from O'Neill.

I may try a slapdab cement repair on my own, but wouldve preferred proper repair (which I always represented I would pay for, if required) by a consumer-responsive manufacturer--that aint O'Neill, apparently.......

And I aint no tirekicker either---this is the first time ive said anything negative about any manufacturer here on the zone.

General Discussion / Seasucker Suction Cup Car Rack

purchasing one of these will suck a whole lotta money from a person--might even make a sucker out of a person, at these prices

but seems a decent concept for a quick attach rack that doesnt need to be mounted fulltime--so it's in the car, stowed, not impacting gas mileage even when nothing is racked

cant stand the thru the window soft racks--for a quick run down to the beach, ya--but i took one on a road trip and it was a PITA

depression sucks--and it's real, and it's dangerous

take good care of any of your people who might be afflicted

check in on them often, and make you they know youre out there, you care about them, you have their back, and you will be there if they need you--there is research that says this helps depressed people more than meds or talk therapy

« on: February 24, 2019, 07:07:45 AM »
So steal this favorite board of mine!

It's been my goto for prolly 50 sessions, so it aint perfect--in fact it's got some wear on it.

But it's dry inside with a few repairs, all solid, and the pad has plenty left in it.

Stock fins are in excellent shape.

I am selling this board so i dont grab it each time i surf.

Gotta focus on my new starby pro and my barra, and with the creek dialed in such as it is...........

I plan to buy a new, shorter creek, but want to wait a while.

how's 900 sound?  serious?  pm me

it's from one of the earlier runs--red/orange vs the current blue/green

Classifieds / Brooklyn Blowout
« on: July 26, 2018, 11:06:36 AM »
Previously Posted:
Brand new SIC Bullet 14 v2 with nose to tail RSPro extra wide installed, stock fin. New, flawless, mint, whatever. Condition a non-issue.
Brooklyn Blowout at 1800 Buckeroos. Great board--I just realized I am strictly a SUP surfer.

New meat:
Starboard Blue Carbon Airborn Widepoint 8'8", fair condition with a couple of solid ding repairs. Watertight, never wet inside. Surfs great.
Brooklyn Blowout at 750 Buckeroos. Great board, moved my progression significantly, but I am wed to my Creek and dialing in a new 8'3" for cleaner stuff.

Pickup in Brooklyn--possible i can meet in far eastern CT or RI, if serious.

Below see my Creek--not for sale!
