Maybe the LAFC logo. It's in the top right of that image.

Everyone get ready for half price Ensis wings on The Zone.

So do we pm him now or do we just furiously refresh? Or does he throw one in the box when he ships you a board like a Willy wonka golden ticket?

Skyrama hit 31mph in the surf. New armstrong 1125. It was in a story  think, maybe it's still on his page.

Project cedrus uses a softer material for the front and rear of the mast. I hope to get that mast in the water today or tomorrow.

I put the AXIS 75cm aluminum mast with doodad and plate mount, next to the AXIS 76cm carbon mast. The carbon mast was ever so slightly shorter. I was confused.

A 75cm carbon unifoil mast was ever so slightly taller than both AXIS masts. My 75cm project cedrus mast with plate mount and a lift adapter is taller yet. That one measures 80.5cm by my tape measure.

Hahaha. I may not understand any of the math or how things work. I do know that learned alone 3 years ago in beach break that I now refuse to even look at when I have my foil. I learned the hardest way possible I think, but I did learn. 😀

Another thing about white water is explodes you forward to the flats. Sometimes youíre just going to fast. Drag your feet. Or do a bit of a tripod take off. Where you have both hands on the rail, back foot in position, dragging your front foot to control the speed.

I dislike straight white water takeoffs. I greatly enjoy crumbly white water backing off into open swell take offs.

You can try scooting forward as the wave hits you to keep the board in the water longer.

Whatís the problem? Youíre going from 0-60 in a split second so up on foil before you can stand?

I'm assuming by "row" you mean a "SUP Paddle" or an "Oar".

We would need to see a video of these "unbroken" waves to see if you can prone paddle into them.

Here is a clip of a very good prone foiler paddling into a wave that just barely breaks. He still needed the push from the white water to get into it. Had he been inside of there and there was no white water push he would not have been able to catch that wave.

You can't buy happiness. But you can buy foils. So it's pretty close.

Bigmtnbill got a new crayon color I see. Your drawing skills haven't improved though.

There's also the problem of white boy rhythm :)
