Gear Talk / Re: Longboard Style SUP: Yes, but wich one?

Hey Biggie, it would be nice to see some 10' competition here on the east coast.  +- 10' performance SUP's are really a great choice for most riders and most days here.

I totally dig my 9'6" JL Black and Blue, it's a true noserider, and as such, really only works well when the waves are cooperating.  And on those days, I want nothing else.  But, our waves are consistently inconsistent, so my performance longboard, 10' Stylemaster gets the nod for most days.  A longboard can take many different forms but noserider and performance shapes are really the two main longboard categories and we branch out from there.  Remember there is no right or wrong in longboarding just fun and even more fun...

Training, Diet, and Fitness / Re: FSA HSA and HRA Compliant

So, here is how it worked for me.  With my high deductible HC plan, I have an Health Savings Account, (HSA) that is funded with pre tax money, set up to cover our ginormous medical deductible as well as other non-covered medical expenses.   

My cholesterol levels are now higher than ever since I stopped flatwater paddling last fall.  Accordingly, my doc has written a scrip (a letter of medical neccessity), so I can reimburse myself the cost of the "equipment" from my HSA. 

I ordered a new 14 x 25 BF from Infinity which should be arriving today.  In fact, I got this idea from the Infinity web site, they state FSA HSA Eligible.

It's not all roses, if my cholesterol levels do not abate within 6 weeks from diet changes and excercise, I will have to start taking statins.

Generally, FSA,HSA,HRA etc, are ďabove the lineĒ deductions

You should find a local shop to give you some advice, there is a chance of alligator/crocodile activity in that area.  But, with a little caution I bet you find some great places to paddle.

Yes, very expensive, but hopefully not so much in dollars but rather in time lost.   

Everyone is different for sure Eastie, but in my case, when my hips get out of whack, it's usually related to me failing to stretch my hamstrings after a paddle run or bike ride (or sitting on my ass in my office all day).   

In fact, I'm gonna stand up right now and do some light stretching... ;D

It looks like Black Project is gluing their paddles PB.  That sure makes it easier to tweak shaft lenghts and make repairs.

The spiral wrap was just in a bad place on this repair.  Surfercook would likely have half his grip on the smooth side an the other half in the rougher repaired area.  So, I sanded it down and applied paint to match his PSH Ripper.

Calf (knee) leash is great for flatwater or surf for any situation that you might need to walk the board a bit.  But in bigger waves, Iíve had the leash to slip over my calf, and with the bigger cuff, it continued and slipped right off the end of my foot.

Not too uncommon for the principles of the acquired company to stay on for a while, especially if they are as well regarded in the industry as Meg and Dave.  This will allow some of their personal goodwill to transfer to the acquirer.  And, if there is an earn out component, they will have a front row seat.

Bob, your woodwork is always outstanding, but the I Shizu Not is just pure genius.  With those teeth, it captures our bulldog's expression pretty much to a tee.

I see that A10, the BP Hydro (their race paddle) is also 8 deg and also comes in a 78sq in blade.
