AMERICAN PLAYBOY: The Hugh Hefner Story

Really good.  An American success story.  Felt like a gangster story where they were just printing money.

I am too young to have ever any Playboy association but I didn't know he predated James Bond and Disneyland.  And he was a true civil rights advocate on the subjects of race and freedom of speech among other things. 

In the end the Playboy logo is the 3rd most recognizable brand in the world behind Apple and Coca Cola.  Even if half true its amazing.

A sailing friend just pinged me thinking I know everything about all things that foil.  I really only know SUP foils and specifically 1 brand. 

He said that NBC in the United States airs these races at night and he records them and watches the next day.  This would be a good poor man's option. 

If anybody else has any links or ideas please share.

Robert - Funny small world story . . .

Does Brad in the video above hang out at Sunset Point?  When I was on the North Shore 'Brad' was out every day on a Blue Planet SUP.  It was early November.  He was very capable in 8 to 14 foot faces.   He looked like the Brad in the video if not his twin brother.

I wouldn't say he was friendly but tolerated me on the foil when it was #TooBigToFoil and was 'conversant' with our host (the host did in fact live on Sunset Point). 

PS: I love the coaching videos.  Far too many people hop on a SUP and try charging in to waves NOT realizing that the key to catching more waves is an efficient stroke.   They say part of Kelly Slater's advantage was that he was a better paddler than everyone else.

Was that a question??
. . . . Feynman . . .

Yes! "Why did Aunt Minnie slip on ice?"

I work with a bunch of uber Math nerds.  Harvard & MIT types.  I was good at math.  NY State math competition in 8th grade.  BC Calculus grade 11 in high school scored a 5 on the test.  2 more years of advanced calculus in Engineering school at Cornell . . I had enough . . . The guys I work with make fun of me when I have to remember the difference between the independent and dependent variables.  I never liked the semantics.  They manage the machine learning side of the house. 

When people ask 'Why' the machine predicted what it did we often say it's like magnets.

I have used ~ 1.45 billion heartbeats.  The rest is gravy.

However I am taking note of my heartrate and isolating what causes it to go DOWN. 

Every year for the past 3 years there has been a nadir (low point) in August.  What happens in August?

Oh yeah!  It is summer time, there are LESS waves and I run more.  I go from surfing 3 to 4 days a week on the West coast and no running to running 3 to 4 days a week and NO surfing on the East Coast.   

Running is terrible other than for 1) Improving breath holding 2) staying in shape and 3) curing hangovers

Maybe good for heart rate too.  Surfing just makes your chest get bigger so you feel justified eating more hamburgers.   

Graph below is Monthly Resting Heartrate by Month.

PonoBill got me on to The Big Picture by Sean Carroll. 

This book and more specifically this passage helped me get through a rough New Years crossing. 

3 Billion Heartbeats that is all you get.  Make good use of them.

What was the report here?

How did it go?  Did you connect with any Zoners.  Not that we want to out anyone . . . . maybe you're making a video.

Is this "Crow" Haley who made my hand tied big wave waist leashes?

No.  Although we all wear the Crow Haley leashes.  You can see the 20 foot length of leash in the picture.

This is Haley Fiske

When not getting run over by a 40 footer this is what a ride looks like from above.

Haley was not the first to SUP Mavericks (that honor goes to board designer Lyle Carlson).  Haley has been the dominant SUP'r at Mavericks going into his 2nd decade of over performance. 

He texts me pictures like this and then jokes about the situation and the beating:

Beasho Text : "Did you survive that?  Sorry..... why are you falling.  The board is well trimmed."

Haley: "Some guy got in my way in the drop
            I had to avoid him or run him over
            Which resulted in the board skipping sideways
            I got control of the board skipping sideways
            Which resulted in my foot being off-center on the rail
            The Avoidance resulted in an airdrop
            I landed the AirDrop
            When the board sped up I fell backwards when I hit a piece of chop
            It was like a chain reaction
            Three times I was like “yeah I pulled it” "


This is a view of what 'winning' three times looks like for Haley.

Foil SUP / Re: #TooBigToFoil then go Bigger

I have a brother!!!!!!!   This is great.

You can see on takeoff he is flying as he makes the drop.  The benefit with a longer SUP is that you can fly nose down on the water.  Being on foil requires much more finesse.  With a short board at speed if the nose touches you will pearl 95% of the time. That's also why he was on a 40" mast.

Back to Foiling.  This was the prettiest, and among the biggest waves, I have ever caught on a Foil.

Is anybody out there?  Is anybody doing this in the world?

Nothing small breaks in this spot.  15-17 foot takeoff that turned into a screaming 12 footer over Blackhand Reef.  500 yard ride.
