Gear Talk / Leash toe advice
« on: February 09, 2019, 10:18:23 PM »
Have used some narrow guage parachute cord but that failed once.
What do folks like to use to secure the leash to the board for SUP wave riding?

Technique / getting back on the pad
« on: February 03, 2019, 01:45:07 PM »
I surf a JL stun gun now for 2 years. I used to think " why did they put the kick pad so far back, i'll never get on that except in the steepest waves" (admittedly the SG seems to be FOR steep waves.)

But over time i find i am back there more and more. Wondering what accounts for that ? I mean obviously technique is getting better but how could that slow learning curve for me have been speeded up?

Foil SUP / JL Foil Sups flood market?
« on: November 28, 2018, 01:21:26 PM »
I see lots of JL Foil Sups for sale at good prices on Craigslist...
Just a function of too many people who bought and didnt like? Or is it something particular to those boards that folks are ditching them?

Gear Talk / Leash to Suit Velcro?
« on: November 14, 2018, 02:45:56 PM »
Has anyone tried to velcro their leash to their bathing suit to keep it out of the water? Perhaps if one can get the size of the velcro tab right, so it stays on except when pulled (and hopefully not pulling ones shorts off)...

« on: September 22, 2018, 07:40:34 PM »
Lost one of the stock fins so wanting to try a new quad set up. I weigh 155 and surf mostly south shore Oahu so from here out this season it is mostly chest high surf i am in.
Heard good things about Jamie Mitchell Futures...any others you like?

Gear Talk / Fishing set up for a Stand Up
« on: August 18, 2018, 03:40:15 PM »
Went out today in Hawaii. Wasnt really prepared and had 25 knot winds and 2-4 foot surf so a bit tricky for a novice to say the least...
Had my spinning rod tucked into my board shorts...
I am on a 10.5 glass board that i would prefer not to ruin in order to modify...

Any advice on rod holders, ways to strap down cooler would be greatly appreciated

Technique / How to take off in a breakingwave
« on: July 08, 2018, 05:52:39 PM »
Try as I might Idont seem to be able to progress in my ability to increase the success rate of making the take off
on waves that are breaking as i take off...
I know i need to get my body prepared for the sudden acceleration of the board and crouching seems to help with a firm forward foot but I feel so psyched out...

advice? Videos?

Gear Talk / Jimmy Lewis stun gun 8'7"
« on: April 01, 2017, 07:36:12 PM »
I find that I rarely get my back foot onto the kick pad, as if it is too far back for me. I only weigh 155. Only on the steepest over head waves does it begin to feel right there for me.  Anyone else move it forward?

Gear Talk / jimmy Lewis water from gore valve?
« on: August 17, 2016, 08:44:08 PM »
Had my new JL Stun gun out in my yard after long session today and noticed a bit of salt water coming out of valve onto e deck

Does that mean I have a leak?

Next steps?

Gear Talk / Rail tape
« on: June 19, 2016, 10:59:24 PM »
Does rail tape affect board performance in any measurable way?
Is it ok to wrap the tape onto the bottom a small amount?

Gear Talk / Kialoa Methane Paddle
« on: June 16, 2016, 10:24:26 PM »
Bought an 86 inch on sale today.
But I only need 80 inches.
How hard is it to shorten? The kialoa website shows how to cut untopped paddles but this one will be topped?

Gear Talk / Jimmy Lewis Carbon versus epoxy
« on: June 05, 2016, 12:46:02 AM »
Anyone can comment on relative advantages?
Cost surely is one factor along with weight
How about surf performance and ding resistance?
