Foil SUP / AK Durable Supply Company
« on: February 13, 2020, 06:57:27 PM »
Was watching Zane's latest Vlog and noticed he is riding an AK Foil as seen in this photo:

Anyone heard of these?  Do they make the Starboard foils?

Foil SUP / Twin Masts!?!?!?
« on: September 17, 2019, 02:51:51 PM »
Signature Surf Foils posted this on Facebook... "TWIN-TRAX
So about 6 months ago we started experimenting with twin masts. Trying different configurations: from single long wings, to double wings, different size wings, different length masts to some weird contraptions which are better not shown 😜 & gotta say it's been rather interesting.

Feels somewhat like riding a bicycle compared to a unicycle, super stable so possibly great for beginners. On a wave feels way different so still rate single better in waves, but should soon have some new innovations that could potentially influence more the AIR wing / race scene, so let's see where this all goes. Either way loads of fun so let us know what ya reckon 😎🦅

General Discussion / SUP in 1947 Movie
« on: August 28, 2019, 07:07:59 PM »
I don't think this topic came up before but I turned on the TV today and it was tuned to TCM and there was a 1947 Movie titled Good News on and a boy looked like he was paddleboarding across the screen!  Wonder if this is back when Duke Kahanamoku started doing this? 

Here is a picture:

Random / Board Prices may be going up...

Read on The Inertia about a 10% tariff on surfboards going in effect on September 1st if not reversed:

Wonder if this affects the SKUs for SUPs, Foil Boards and Foils.  Also wondering about the percentage of companies manufacturing in China versus Thailand and other locations...

* High Aspect GL 180, 210, 240
* New Tail Wings including a Straight One

Any details?

Much better price point, though they can do that when they didn't have to really do the R&D...

Gear Talk / 2019 Starboard Pro
« on: September 19, 2018, 12:33:44 PM »
Was watching the webcast of the SUP Open in New York and noticed the 2019 Starboard Pro looks quite different from previous years.  One of the Starboard folks commented on the stream that it was a complete redesign. 

I thought that the shape looked like they included elements from the Hypernut which was confirmed in the following links:


Seems like the changes could make for both a more stable and sharper board.

Gear Talk / Soloshot 3 with Optic 25
« on: August 01, 2018, 04:11:17 PM »
The Optic 25 is being discontinued so is on clearance now for $399.  Any thoughts on whether the 25x zoom on the Optic 25 is acceptable for beach surf videos and pictures versus the 65?

Just set my DVR to record APP World Tour Red Bull Heavy Water and The Future of SUP on CBS Sports at 4pm and 4:30pm PST tomorrow.

Downwind and Racing / Negligent Operations... seriously!?!?
« on: March 06, 2018, 07:15:07 PM »
A friend of mine forwarded me this article earlier today:

and further information at...

From reading the article, it seems that the paddlers were well prepared (wore life vests, leashes, dry/wetsuits, downwind boards...etc.) for the conditions until they got pulled off of the water by the Department of Natural Resources and ticketed $320 each!

Gear Talk / StandUpZone Rocks -- Upgrading Deckpad
« on: February 08, 2018, 09:57:28 PM »
I had a brilliant idea of upgrading the deckpad on one of my SUPs to an OAM Dave Boehne Blur Pad.  Watching the following video, I thought this looks easy enough so I grabbed my hairdryer and got to work...

Two hours later, after barely making progress I started searching on the Zone and after reading all the threads on the topic came away with... "if I only did this search earlier I would not have embarked upon this project... but since I started I figured that I would chalk this up to something I did once, but never again!" 

I decided to stay the course and got back to work.  Two more hours later, I was now 2/3 the way through but the rest of the pad would not budge.  I decided to change tactics and follow Wazza66's advice on this thread from 2011:

I laid out towels soaked in mineral spirits over the remaining deckpad and covered it in plastic.  Lo and behold, the next morning, the deckpad came off in 15 minutes!  Thank you Wazza66 and StandUpZone!  If anyone else wants to remove their deckpad, the process laid out worked for me.   

Attached is a picture of the finished product...
