Gear Talk / Recommendation for locking straps
« on: February 25, 2020, 01:27:33 PM »
Doing a camping trip to Florida with my SUP and was thinking about getting some locking straps to protect my SUP when not at the campground. I know nothing is theft-proof, but thought about using the locking straps to secure my SUP to my camper to secure it some. Anyone try the canulock or thule locking straps or have any other suggestions?


The family and I are already tossing around ideas for next summer's vacation. We've gone to Myrtle for the past 15 years and was thinking something else for next summer. Never been north of Maryland, so was thinking of trying somewhere in the Northeast. My 20 year son and 16 year old prone surf and I SUP surf. My wife does neither, but loves a good book and good glass of wine. Any suggestions of places we might look?- we also like hiking but not roughing it with the wife with us :) - Looking at spending around $200 a night if doable - live in Va., but totally unknown to anything north of Baltimore. Thanks

Gear Talk / Glue suggestion for paddle
« on: June 13, 2017, 06:37:51 AM »
I snapped the shaft of my carbon fiber paddle (3/4 the way up) on a trip to CR back in March. I got a new paddle to SUS, but now ready to repair the old one - figured worse case, I could use it when flatwater fishing on my SUP or to give out as a loaner.

So I have cut off the rigged edges of the bottom and top pieces of the old shaft and I have an 6" carbon fiber tube that fits perfectly in the 2 pieces, so the question now, is what glue should I use to put them all together? Thanks and let me know if more information is needed.

Gear Talk / Paddle suggestion for SUS with bad shoulders
« on: March 23, 2017, 06:45:02 AM »
On my recent trip to CR, my carbon fiber paddle shaft snapped in half. I have had it for 6 years and my guess is it got pressured dinged in the travel. Thank goodness for rentals! So back home now I'm in the market for a new paddle. I have had shoulder surgery on both shoulders, so wanted to ask for suggestions that might help keep pressure off the balls of my shoulders. Someone told me to maybe look at a smaller blade to help relive some of the pressure. I'm 50 years old, 5-7 and surf mostly in Virginia and OBX about a dozen times a year. Thanks for any thoughts or suggestions.

Gear Talk / Advice for GoPro and mount
« on: January 03, 2017, 11:51:45 AM »
My son and I are set for our first surf trip out of the US as we are going to CR in March. Over Christmas break we were talking taking pictures. He has a GoPro mount on an old long board but not the one his is taking. Neither of us wants a permanent mount on the nose of our boards, so looking for advice about attaching the GoPro to my paddle. Also he has the first GoPro that came out, so thinking about upgrading for our trip, so looking for any feedback if the newer ones are better as I'm a non-tech guy. Thanks!

Travel, Trips, Destinations / Anyone been to Mal Pais CR?
« on: November 17, 2016, 06:00:58 AM »
Buddy is looking at going the first week of March to Mal Pais and was looking at going with him. I've never been off the east coast so would be a new adventure for me. I was looking at taking my 10' SUP, but even looking at the airline restrictions have me all confused.

General Discussion / Sweatshirt of van with surfboards??
« on: October 18, 2016, 12:24:09 PM »
Not sure where this should go, but would like to get my dad a sweatshirt of an image of a van with surfboards on top. I've looked on the internet but can't seem to have found any. Has anyone seen this I could order? Thanks

Gear Talk / Cart to pull SUP behind bicycle? Anyone use?
« on: August 09, 2016, 08:56:20 AM »
Anyone use a cart/hitch to pull their SUP behind a bicycle? I have a neighborhood pond about a mile down the road and would like to take my 11-6 SUP to it to do some paddling and fishing. I'd really be interested if anyone uses the C-Tug kayak cart as I could take my SUP on some days and my Ride 115 on other days -- Thanks

I ran acrosse a few very positives posts about The Palladium in Puerto Vallarta, but they seemed to be a few years old. Anyone stay there recently. Is there still a decent break infront of the resort. Looking at maybe going the first week of August with wife - thanks for any suggestions.

Gear Talk / Bluetooth headphone suggestions
« on: December 02, 2015, 12:56:51 PM »
Looking for suggestions for bluetooth headphones to pair with my iphone for working out and for jogging. I like the over the ear models rather than the ear buds and have a smaller head. Not worried about water proof - thanks for suggestions for any that work for good vaule. I'm still in denial that technolgy works, so this blue tooth music amazes me :)

Still trying to figure out place to go for anniversary next Juy. A buddy was talking to me about Cabo. I read about the Surf Hotel here on the Zone, but has anyone stayed ay the Hotel Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas as was looking at all inclusive as a rookie traveler. Defintely looking for SUP surfing close by while there - thanks!

Looking for a place for our 25th anniversary next fall and was looking at Barbados after looking here on Zone - I had to goggle to see where it was. Wanting some SUP waves and wife needs nice, but not too crazy resort and was thinking an all inclusive resort might be nice. I'm not much of a traveler (only been out of the country once - Scotland to golf), so the simplier the better. I saw where we can fly direct from Atlanta - What would waves be like in the fall and any suggestions on a resort? Thanks from a very, very travel rookie that would be better with my SUP and a tent, but after 25 years with me she deserves something a little better  :)

Looks like we are now going to get a late start so looking at maybe stopping in St. Augustine this Saturday to break up the trip - plus the weather looks nice and the wind seems to be low. Any suggestions in St. Augustine where to go to SUP surf and my boys to prone surf? Any information on parking would be helpful also -- thanks!

Headed from Va to Orlando for Spring Break with the boys this weekend. After a night stay in Sanatee, SC would like to stop in Daytona/New Symrna for the afternoon to get in some SUS and prone surfing for the boys before continuing our trip to Orlando. Not too picky on conditions as I figure it will be an unknown. Thanks for any suggestions of locations and parking.
