Training, Diet, and Fitness / Sledgehammer training....
« on: January 19, 2020, 01:17:38 PM »
Always mindful of how different walks of life can intersect with others....

Earlier was re-reminded about sledgehammer training.

I knew someone years ago who had acquired a tractor tyre and used to hit it with a sledgehammer. At the time, I thought he was bonkers. Now, I'm wondering if it could help with dry land SUP training. I've had days of digging tons of sand out of bags and thinking the same thing at the time.

There are more suggestions than just hitting a tyre with a sledgehammer that falls in the category.

Anyone got any thoughts or experiences?

Gear Talk / Sources for hard boards in the UK.
« on: August 22, 2017, 01:45:42 PM »
So I've had a SUP for about two years. My first board was home made hollow wood board. It could have been better built and ligheter but was a first attempt of the process so there were some issues. It has done ok though and has done quite a few miles. I've since one another hollow wood build to improve the process but that was a surfboard.

Unfortunately that first board has a leak that I can't find and because I hadn't realised this it had been left wet and has some of the internal ply separating. It's on it's way out and I am on the prowl for a new board. The wife has decreed that I'm not allowed to make it and have to buy it!

Now, either I'm struggling with my google-fu or there is just a lack of hard boards out there but I don't really seem to see many options.

I'm looking at around 9' 6" due to storage. I think with a lighter board than the wooden one (anything will be lighter!!) I can probably swing(!) it to 10' or 10' 6"ish. I'm 70 kgs and moderately competent (the home made board is quite tippy so on the flip side has pushed the learning curve along)

Any help on where to look or search terms to use? I'm only really seeing Starboard, JP and Fanatic - are they the only brands really available in the uk?

Thanks!

Gear Talk / Good fin info sites?
« on: September 11, 2016, 11:35:47 PM »
Is there a site out there that is seen as the place to go when reading and looking at fin science?

I know there are going to be many factors involved in how a fin performs - size of rider, ability, board size, shape, water conditions - but figure there must be general rules written somewhere! Being a bit of a geek I'm interested in doing some reading around the subject.

I've done some searching out and any sites I've seen are either one specific manufacturer promoting their fins or far to general in what they're talking about.

I'm wondering about an independent person that is a fin nerd and writes about them in a fair bit of depth.
