Sessions / Another fun morning at SanO...
« on: August 08, 2019, 03:53:58 PM »
We're have a little swell and the water is glassy and warm. Had my GoPro paddle mount rolling and my friend Pauly shooting from the beach. Here's the stills. Had a few good beat downs and one almost over the falls. I'm feeling it in my back and shoulders. Time for a nap 8)

Gear Talk / Upset by problems with your board? Slam them on CL..
« on: August 07, 2019, 08:41:09 AM »
I came across this on CL today. I gather it's from an unhappy SUP purchaser, but they seem to have a lot of pictures of other damaged boards. It reads like a class action lawsuit in the making. Their repair / build comments are also not accurate? Wonder who posted this?

Sessions / Stoke session at Doheny on my new L41
« on: July 17, 2019, 09:44:26 AM »
I finally put this together. I like the paddle mount POV the best by far. We've had some great South Swell pump lately, and Doheny has been super fun. Even more so on my new L41. I freak'n love this board!!!!!  I've surfed 4 days in a row and it's been great every day.

I just bought my first L41 SIMSUP used on CL. It's in great, if not perfect shape as you can see. It's 8'8 x 32" x 4-1/2"  146L  20 lbs. I threw my back out after a great Monday surf session (which I GoPro'd film to come). Just rinsing off at the SanO shower, bent over to pick my board up and pop! There goes the back :'(
Feeling much better today, but I won't get to surf it for a while. This was a birthday gift to myself. It's been a few years. I want to thank Al, the previous owner for giving me such a great deal. On top of that, delivering it to my house! Way too much volume for 160 lb AL, but perfecto for me. Time will tell if I like these wide ass boards. A report to follow when my back heals a... little ::)

I had no idea how expansive and innovative this company is.

Gear Talk / Cheap tiny POV HD for everyone...
« on: May 15, 2019, 03:37:29 PM »
Don't have the money to join the GoPro enthusiast? Problem solved. $ 29.99 and has a waterproof case. 1080 is the best it does, but that's fine for YouTube. It has image stabilization and 90 minutes of shooting time. Get one and start posting. The wrist mount with swivel is pretty cool.

It's only $29.99. .............. It's only $29.99.  ................  It's only $29.99.  ..................

You can create your own vent plug. Just tap & die ( create a thread in) a piece of plastic or aluminum and glass it in. You could 3D print one as well. Pick a style of Gore vent and thread it accordingly.

Gear Talk / Are you a Slinger? Another Kickstarter with a paddlestick.

Here's another dry-land SUP workout board. Nothing like a Kickstarter with a bunch of young girls in bikinis showing you how it's done ???

Gear Talk / New Board Locking System
« on: April 01, 2019, 12:13:13 PM »
A guy was handing these out at the beach the other day. He had a sample with him. It is heavy duty aluminum and locks into the fin box. Looks promising.

Random / Is FM radio dying?
« on: March 27, 2019, 12:28:38 PM »
The other night some friends of mine were having a discussing about Pandora, XM Radio, and Spotify metric's. We were having some drinks listening to my Pandora which was on my Steely Dan station. Interestingly it only played one Steely Dan song in about an hour. One of my friend says" Spotify metrics are way better than Pandora!" Another friend said he loves his XM Radio in his car. I mentioned this station broadcast from just across the boarder in Mexico. It covers San Diego County and very South Orange County. (105.7 FM) It has a very strange existence. It used to be an 80's hits station with DJ's and give-away's. One day the DJ's, ad's, and English commercials were gone. Now it's Spanish only commercials (política) and then super random B sides and 80's hits mixed with never heard extended plays. Everyone I turn on to it, just loves it.
Anyway, my Spotify advocate friend laughed at me even listening to FM. I am going to put an FM receiver in my office just because of this station I found.

I noticed all through Europe they have built large concrete seawalls that protect the citizens, community, and property from rising tides while maintaining access to beaches and surf spots. In my opinion they are beautiful places partly because of the walls. Without them properties are lost, access is reduced, and some surf communities will be only in the history books.
There is big money in environmental lawsuits, but unfortunately no money in protecting surfing.
