Gear Talk / Re: Paddles! Surf vs flat water...
« on: August 03, 2021, 10:16:35 AM »
For both my flat water & surf paddles I put a few wraps of electrical tape on the shaft where I want my lower hand to be.
Makes it easy to be certain I'm holding paddle the same on both sides. You don't have to look (or guess), can easily just feel it.
Super easy to peel off and move if you are trying to find the right position for you.

I have the full 5 fin HI set for sale on CL here in FL ... don't know where you are but could ship for + $12.

Gives you the full thruster or quad setup to try.

Flatwater and Touring / Sore Feet
« on: May 26, 2021, 06:08:18 AM »
This has probably been discussed before, but I couldn't find anything when I searched ... After about an hour of paddling on the raceboard, my toes/feet start getting sore/numb. I try to move my toes and shuffle my feet periodically, but still after an hour I'm feeling it.

Thinking about trying to find a thin piece of hi-density foam to provide more cushion & comfort. NSI seems to have a pretty good selection.

Has anybody tried this, and can say what worked for them ?

I recommend the movie "Echo in the Canyon" to anyone that likes this flavor of CaliRock.

Just watched "Echo in the Canyon" on Fri nite, and I enjoyed it too.
Next on the list for that genre is ... "The Wrecking Crew"

I use a Futures Runner fin in my NSP Carolina ... believe pretty much any plate & screw mount fin would work. Would also expect FCS II fins would work too.

That's a sweet looking wave J ... all things considered i.e. tide, wind & swell all cooperating to provide clean conditions, plus sunshine! ... I think sometimes mother nature just likes to make us work a little harder for it, just to be sure we remember she holds the key to the playground.

Curious how stable the Carolina is at 25.75? I'm looking for a stable all-water board and this might check all the boxes.
I jumped on this from a 12'6"x29" race/tour board and it felt comfortable to me almost right away, still only have <10 sessions on it and none in any crazy conditions. But I've also never been on anything narrower.

Agree w/ burchas, probably worthwhile to make the effort to sand the base.
But if you're still looking at other fins ... check out my classified at:,36992.0.html

Good to see that you got a piece of that swell ... well actually it looks like you got all of it :)
Recognized a couple of the S. Brevard spots. And yeah, the rip on Sun morning was for real. Get stuck inside for a bit, and you got swept down the beach in no time. Had to do the "get out, walk back north, get back in" myself.
Yewww !

Gear Talk / Nu-2-Me Carolina
« on: March 25, 2021, 11:47:34 AM »
Bought a fix-r-upper NSP Carolina over the winter, and I've finally finished the repairs and gotten it out for a few paddles. Luving the dugout standing position, feels like my feet are right on top of the water. Probably need to shorten my paddle 2-3" now, keep dragging the tip after I finish a stroke and go to reach again. Other thing is that it seems a bit susceptible to cross-winds, I'm attributing that to the flat vertical sides of the dugout, maybe 1.5-2 sqft of area? Haven't had it in open ocean or small surf yet, but looking forward to it.

Passed the covid test so I can fly back to Boston. Kind of wish I had failed!

Woah, what ?
No Covid test needed to get into CR, but you need a Covid test to get back into the states?

The SUPboarder crew did a review of the 8'7" ... but these guys love everything SB does, so take it for what its worth.
