I don't find the pad too slippery but I don't do a lot of radical maneuvers.

I run quad also. I switch to thruster now and then but always return to quad. Same with my Flow. It seems to suit my style of riding.

I've had my 7'6 X 31 SF out on a few head high days. The flat rocker makes it very fast and skatey which takes a little more ability to control in bigger surf than typically rockered boards. When it gets around shoulder high, I usually end up switching over to the Sunova Flow so I can lay out deeper carving turns.

The flatter rocker of the SF makes it harder to bury the rail and hold it there when turning. It gives it plenty of speed but turns are done in quick little bursts which is a nice advantage in smaller weaker waves but can be a handful on bigger more critical days.

In contrast, on mushy days the Sunova Flow can be so slow that it can barely get up enough speed to turn. That's where the SF comes alive.

I'm still happy with my SF. I always look forward to using it whenever the conditions are favorable.

The Destroyer looks very tempting. I'd love to demo one for comparison.

A king tide on the southeast coast of Florida is only about 6 inches above an average tide. That won't make much difference in a 5 foot storm surge.

It's just Huey, not Baby Huey.   ::)

When you Google "Huey surf" it omits all the cartoon and singer stuff and you get the accurate info on it.

The surf gods name is just Huey. There is no record of him being called Baby Huey, the gigantic and naïve duckling cartoon character. Cleveland must have added that.    :P

I Googled Baby Huey and even added the words surfing, swell and Australia, and got nothing but the cartoon character and the singer.

Apparently it's not that widely recognized as a surf term.   ::)

Sorry, I didn't mean to put down what you obviously love doing. I know what fine dining is. Yes, it tastes great but it's not an absolute requirement for me that's all. I can take it or leave it. There's nothing sad about it. I get plenty of enjoyment from the food I eat. I had a bowl of Grape Nuts with grapes in it after dinner last night that was over the top enjoyable.

Laird believes that he gains energy from the ground by being barefoot. I'll listen to Laird talk about anything that has to do with moving across the water all day long, but as soon as he wanders away from that he's just another airhead. Like listening to a movie star that hasn't been told he's full of shit for the last twenty years talk about poverty. Or physics. Or life in anything but a little force/money field bubble. Nope. Just shut up or read a book (Googling your guru doesn't count).

Just had an awesome Wagyu beef hamburger with parmesan cheese, homegrown heirloom tomaders, toasted baguette with the guts cut out, and some sauteed mushrooms with parmesan and white wine. Washed it down with ice-cold Analemma champagne. If you live anywhere near Hood River and you haven't tried Analemma champagne then wow, missing out. we buy a couple of cases every year. They make it the hard way, and it shows. Not cheap, but I'd stack it up against the best of the best, and it wouldn't embarrass anyone.

So Okay, that wasn't exactly Vegan. Finished off with some of Diane's insane homemade peach ice cream with a little Jameson's drizzled over it.  Now we're going to watch Caddyshack because Diane is becoming a goffer, and it's one of the best movies ever made.

I've never heard Laird say that about being barefoot. I've always preferred being barefoot. Shoes seem to sap my energy. I can't wear heavy shoes like some people. I get the lightest sneakers I can find (sandals in summer) and I'd still rather be barefoot. I take them off whenever possible.

I've never understood why people get so into cooking and eating gourmet food. I've tried it and I don't get anything out of it. I don't enjoy enhanced food any more than just plain food. I use a few condiments when needed but that's it. I usually try to spend less time cooking than the time it takes to eat it. When gourmet people cook, it usually means a long wait. That's just me. I'm not against gourmet food. I just have no desire to eat it or spend my time cooking it.

It wasn't bad in NH either.   8)

Please explain what Baby Huey means. I know he's a comic book character, but what does that have to do with swells?

I am certainly no expert on the subject. I read a little here and there and listen to people talk about it.

For instance I recently watched a couple of videos where Laird Hamilton and Henry Rollins said in separate interviews that they no longer eat bread. I listen to what they have to say because they have probably done their homework and may know a few things.

"Studies have shown that long term daily eating of wheat products can have very negative affects on your brain and body over time that show up in old age."

??---better link some of these "studies" or ima hafta call BS

Not much time. Heading off to work, but I did find this PDF.

https://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/ba07/b6e9f3cb6e77239d0e81de9aee8173595403.pdf

This is an except from the conclusion.

"Cereal grains obviously can be included in moderate amounts in the diets
of most people without any noticeable, deleterious health effects, and herein
lies their strength. When combined with a variety of both animal- and plantbased foods, they provide a cheap and plentiful caloric source, capable of sustaining and promoting human life. The ecologic, energetic efficiency
wrought by the widespread cultivation and domestication of cereal grains
allowed for the dramatic expansion of worldwide human populations, which
in turn, ultimately led to humanity’s enormous cultural and technological
accomplishments. The downside of cereal grain consumption is their ability
to disrupt health and well being in virtually all people when consumed in
excessive quantity. This information has only been empirically known since
the discovery of vitamins, minerals and certain antinutrients in the early part
of this century"


So, the controversy is how much wheat and grains should be considered excessive. I'm not completely eliminating it from my life, just cutting back on a lot of it and not eating too much at one time. There is a lot more information out there with varying opinions. I think science is beginning to the understand that the amount of wheat that the average American eats may not be healthful. Some doctors believe that a lifetime of daily intake could contribute to many of the physical and neurological problems people face in old age.

I had all my "last meals" when I was young. Now I'm all about being healthy in my old age.

There are people who have tried to make vegetarians out of cats and dogs always with dire consequences. All kinds of severely bad things happen to predators when you remove meat from their diet. It's actually a very cruel thing to do.

An alternative meat for cats and dogs would have to be 100% equal to meat, not in taste but in its molecular make up. That technology is still a long way off but I believe someday they will be able to replicate meat in a laboratory.

No, I have no problems eating and digesting wheat. Studies have shown that long term daily eating of wheat products can have very negative affects on your brain and body over time that show up in old age.

Wheat products are also bad. My doctor told me that the human body was not designed to process wheat or sugar and there is lots of reliable information out there to back that up. It's not easy avoiding wheat but I've cut back considerably. I don't use sugar at all and never eat sugary foods except maybe a yogurt now and then.
