That March update is no less than amazing and spectacular. The drone footage really enhances production. Looks like you've check all the safety boxes w/that pack and paddle leash. Keep on that bore, Mayanmar.

@Bulky-  I do like the signs they've posted on Maui instructing people not to congregate, picnic etc.  If you're going to the ocean; go get in and leave when you're done.

This sign? Saw it on Insta.
 Every beach where I live is now closed to all water activities, except for my town, which makes no sense at all because now all the surfers are gonna flock here, fisherman too! But you can still walk or run on the beaches?! WTF!!

I would paddle here in my NJ town if could (shoulder still rehabbing) since the beaches are not shut down ....Yet. The town next to me just closed their beaches. But I expect ours to stay open for a while, at least until the weather warms up a bit.
Been quite busy...Palm crosses for the first 10 days of March...then census training and field work. Now census workers are pulled and I've started my lawns and landscaping cleanups so I'm feeling quite lucky to be able to do all my work like every yr this time...shoulder is getting stronger but not near enough to surf yet.

The pandemic has shut my census work down. I was an enumerator in 2010 so it was a rehire for me. Back then it was all classroom training and we recorded data on paper. It's mostly on a gov't issued laptop now which is way cooler and easier.

After completing 16 hours of online training, and another 16 hours of classroom training, plus 3 hours of field training, and 3 and a 1/2 full days canvassing in Barnegat Light (town near me that has all mail delivery to PO boxes) I have been pulled from the field due to the Corona-virus, along with all other US Census workers.
Doesn't look like we'll be going back anytime soon (tentative date is 4/1). Too bad, I was killing it! I guess it's for the best but most of the houses are empty down there anyway so I was not in contact with hardly anyone.

Not sure if anyone has seen this yet or posted. Very cool website developed by a 17 year old!

Thanks for the heads up SC. 
No prob, Bean. Glad you scored one. I stumbled on the offer on one of the FB SOLOSHOT groups. Mine arrived today from Canada brand new never used.

That's crazy you surf that all alone. Nice work! I would be apprehensive to do it by myself. But I have absolutely zero experience on a river bore wave.
Looked like it was all white water riding. Does the wave ever offer any open face?

Surfing w/old friends is the best. Glad to see you getting some of that.

Gear Talk / Re: A Great Find: Gerry Lopez Futures GL2- 5 Fin Set
« on: February 23, 2020, 02:46:44 PM »
Those Lopez fins are sweet for sure. But I thought they were overpriced a few years ago when I priced em up against the PSH quads. The PSH stock fiberglass fins were like $75 new. They were the killer jet shaped fins too! Loved those fins. Wrecked the set in shore break after like two years. The set I owned were all fiberglass and matching, unlike the stock PSH foto I found which has mismatched white plastic for trailers. I thought I had the two remaining fins in my fin collection but couldn't find them. Also thought I had a picture of the airplane style trailers in my fin wreck folder but only the forward fin is in there.
  Scored a pair of Lopez quads summer 2018 when I scored the used Hull Ripper. Was quite pleased to see those fins included. One of trailers got me good last summer. Had that fin cut for quite a few weeks. Got it jumping back on the 9'11". Was quite careful of the trailers after that!
