Gear Talk / Re: Windsurfing on a Sunova Creek
« on: April 13, 2019, 05:50:57 PM »
The 9í1 Creek  is 136l it should be fine if youíre in the average weight. I never tried the Creek  but Iíve more windsurfed my Speeed (8í3?) than used it as a SUP, itís great, easy to jibe, very stable, great acceleration but tail rocker makes it impossible to plane (i planed few times but when overpowered it usually ends with a spin out).
Rails (the Speeed is quite parallel) really help while upwind.
Iím 86kg and usually use a 5.8 or 6.5 m2 sail.
Second hand is the way to go but old gear breaks quickly!

What happened to the big name racers like booty and the girls. I heard the drug testers were there to keep things honest.

I think budgets might have played a part for quite a few racers as i am sure budgets are a little tighter this year. Might be a factor in a few races this year!
After what happened last year itís easy to understand why M.Booth wasnít there...

Iím sure the fact that there were drug tests as nothing to do with the absence of some big names.

Steeve Teihotaata wrote on FB that he collapsed close to the finish line, he had no more water before the first half of the race. I donít think the fact he rode a dugout as much to do with his failing.

Funny, I was thinking to start a thread like this one on multiple days expeditions. Iím planning to do almost the same thing as Robert ę Blue planet Ľ did, circumnavigation around an island (here in Japan), something like 200km...
there are so many ways to do long expeditions, some do it slowly and take time to explore, some have support, others donít... i want to do it without support, on my sunova allwater 14x25í5...

Hi Okiwild
Nice to have videos from Okinawa. I paddle in Kansai /Shikoku area. Last time i was in Okinawa 6 or 7 years ago I couldnít find anybody on a SUP or any rental place. As you said things change.

General Discussion / Re: Longboard size for smaller waves

I agree with maxsonic who agreed with jimK... Buying a cheap knockoff will finally  cost you more money, with less fun in the waves.

smaller days where I just canít get a ride . So thinking of maybe a hard longboard in the future..  Not looking for performances

Hi everyone and happy new year,
Nice to see that CaptainKook became CaptainHooked.
It seems thereís confusion between a longboard /a board designed for noserides etc other longboard tricks/ and a longer board. A longboard can be shorter than a board with a more regular design. Length doesnít mean everything, as said above, rails , rocker and every details of the design counts. So donít buy a board on internet with no info on the rocker etc. Even (or especially) if itís dead cheap.
Youíre looking for a groveler, ŗ board for tiny mushy days.
Have a great 2019

Foil SUP / Re: Wing boyancy
« on: November 12, 2018, 06:02:56 PM »

ďThe only problem i have is the boyancy of the wingĒ
Some of the best foils ,like the Gofoil, float...
ďit pushes the board out of the water.Ē
I thought itís exactly what itís supposed to do. Do you mean you canít stand on the board when the board is stationary ?
ďremoving the polystyrene and replacing with a more den
How would the volume differ between the 2 foams?Ē
How can someone answer without knowing the exact products you used neither the volume of foam+ carbon/epoxy weight?
If you want it to be heavier just had some carbon or fiberglass, it would be stiffer at the same time and much easier to do.

Youíre not joking?

SUP Advocacy / Re: Cultural Shock - SUP Paddling in France
« on: November 06, 2018, 05:12:36 PM »
Funny, weíre a few Frenchies on the zone but nobody replied to our fellow Frenchman Photofr... and why to complain here and not on the few french forum dedicated to SUP???
I learned the lesson
Better to ignore sometimes

Foil SUP / Re: Dedicated FOIL Section Now on SurferMag Message Board

I didnít understand some of the reactions above, so I checked the FOIL SECTION...  some interesting things and that
ď10/19/18 12:31 Why I honestly dislike SUP'ers
Is they are either new comers or guys who just gave up surfing.
I really hate when they have bad form...bending at the waist, not the knees. It's so ugly.Ē
I donít really understand, is it about choosing partners ?
Sometimes itís better not to try to understand

Great to see things evolving...

@Burchas, Nice board !

I thought other brands made 2 pieces SUP but never saw one. Now Iím curious about Supukís board!
In theory with these boards you have no length limit and the possibility to choose the nose of your board according to conditions, nice.. in theory..
