Beasho, you are too kind my friend!
I look forward to seeing you, R'y and the clan when we all return like the swallows to Capistrano!

Anyone can pick and choose a few good looking clips from their sessions and make themselves look like heroes (my main problem with the 3 second clip shortboard compilations) but this looks way more real, and in a way, way more fun.  This is why we don't all just rent jet skis.

Besides, anyone who knows can see the stance and positioning and tell that you know what you're doing, regardless of the fall.

I did that last butt flop a few days ago with my wing and foil in the shore break on my way out.  Guy comes over and asks if I needed help.  Humbling.

Welcome to the Zone... guessing NZ?
Yeah... that backslapping wave was just like the old bully in high school ;D


Love your taking the elevator down at 1:46.

Hey Rick what is that board at the end, with the stepped rails and nose kick?   

Hi Dusky,
9'2 GenRation Wedge. It's the same board I am riding in the 1st clips of "5 days in SoFlo"
I am reaching up to this board... as it is best used by the highly skilled performance SUPsters with solid balance skills.
The more I learn, the more I like it!
Someday I may feel qualified to do an actual review... till then, I'll sneak in some clips from time to time  :)

Thanks for posting Rick, need to see guys ahead of me still going for it, inspiring.

Thanks Clay.... gotta keep pushing forward or spiral down the drain hole!!!

Thanks Zonoids!

this was the easiest video I ever edited.... I only had to go through a few vids to find way more crash clips than I needed  ;D ;D

Hell Yeah!
Nice video. Big ol' smile here watching that....
Creative editing as well.
Happy Birthday.
Yes, you are an inspiration.
Now you're an old man in his 70's chasing waves around the world....just surfing & spreading joy.....who would have ever thought, aye?
Nice job.

Thanks Luc, I appreciate that you liked the editing, thank you! :)

Nice waves even with the closeouts.  You came close to making contact with the board on a couple of those falls.  I really like the looks of the new Flow.

.

Thanks Badger, it was pretty amazing!
I got the absolute best ride of the winter on my 9'6 Kanga on the rare perfect right...but Solo missed it completely.

The Flow V2 (Casey Flow 2.0) is turning out to be a very good board... I just need a few more sessions on it to decide exactly where it fits in my quiver.

SUP General / 5 Days in South Florida SUP Surfing
« on: March 27, 2021, 06:56:44 AM »
Yewwwwwwww.... what a great run!
Such good sessions, most of them solo or with another surfer.

I rode 4 different boards in 5 sessions.... so fun!
It was a 14 sec. swell, which is pretty much closeouts at most Florida spots, so I did a LOT of driving!
Chased it from Cocoa Beach to Jensen Beach... and had some interesting days at the beach!


Note:
SoloShot was not following correctly much of the sessions.... BUT:

After 3 years of trial and error.......I think I finally figured out how to get it tracking correctly.
The last day of the swell was pretty wonky, so I spent some extra time setting up Solo and tried a totally different procedure..... PERFECT!

If this setup works in a few more sessions, I will make a "How To" video of what finally broke the code for my SoloShot3 Optic65  :)

SoCo.... not if we are stoked about tomorrow!

sflinux thanks, much appreciated!
I actually never went vegan... it was "Primal" which is similar in many ways, but there is still meat and chicken included only if grass fed or free range with no additives.

The trailer for Vegan looks interesting.

I am not eating much meat these days, mainly because I don't do much cooking in Florida, mostly salad type stuff but I do eat a lot of eggs.

Finally.... I am back in weight loss mentality.
It's hard to break out of the comfort food rut and lock into weight loss eating.... but I am THERE!  ;D
Down 5 lbs in the past week.... down 20 lbs since a  Sunova Demo road trip got me on a bad path in mid winter.
I am very happy where my head is now and weight is shedding on healthy eating.

Just finished up 3 awesome days of waves in SoFlo.... yewwwwww!
Surfed today with my new buddy Jimmy McK, who emailed me after lurking on the Zone.... we shared a fun session!

Wetdude... yup, no big gulps for me, but naps for sure! Are you wing foiling yet?

TD... my batteries needs regular naps between efforts, but they are holding up   :)

Biggie... biking rocks!


SJ.... Merci' my friend, I hope you are unlocked over there for good!

Beasho... You will, if Mavericks doesn't get you!
Maybe a session at the left when you fly East  :)

Tom... keep ripping, you got the spot for it!

SUPer Dad... keep the pedal down and enjoy that Creek in Mex. Thanks for the feedback  :)

LB:
hang in there buddy, you will get past that!
Aging has many speed bumps that we have to navigate around or slow down for.

Making my videos has worked me through a lot of issues.
I spot weakness developing and find a way to work with the changes.
Sometimes it's as simple as a fin change, or board shape.
I think working with the changes has actually made me a better surfer.

Wingman:
Wow, that looks like a really fun wave for longboard and SUP!
Great beginner wave as well, and it accommodates a LOT of people pretty smoothly.

Pono:
Thanks!
ha ha... we know that Pono will charge ahead, at full strength as the years pile up!

I tell people:
have high expectations of yourself,
Don't accept norms
Step outside your comfort zone!
Pushing the limits is how to keep performance up, long past where most expect you to slow down.

Burchas:
Thanks buddy, I appreciate that!

damn Creek! so smooth. and my lordy... with the amount of breaches i canott imagine the amount of actual sharks under there!  guess you just traded the Cape Cod one chomp and dead, for the Florida ' lose a little bit of your leg'   ;)

ha ha.... I call the Florida sharks "dog bit sharks" after living with Great Whites everyday at home.
Not to make light of how serious some folks have been hurt, but the results are simply milder here.

Wingman,
The reason people rarely surf at this beach is probably because it's a posted Nude Beach.
Best wave around here but very crowded with naturalists.
It takes some balls to set up a telephoto tracking camera in the middle of that crew  ;D ;D ;D
Thank God for editing.

Hi SKS
When you don't want to ride it out...
I'm a big fan of this option  ;D ;D

Technique / Re: Riding out the whitewater after a wave
« on: March 01, 2021, 08:49:59 PM »
Welcome to the Zone SKS!

I use a couple of options.

#1
I use the last bit of clean wave to get a bit of speed up, then run out in front of the wave on an angle, then throw a hard turn and flick my board over, as I fall under the wave. I pop out the back, climb onboard and paddle back out.

This saves you from being pushed too far inside

# 2
I weight the inside rail, back over the sidebite and race across under the whitewater until it dissipates.
This lifts the outside rail, so it won't catch and dump you in front of the board into shallow water.

These pics show what I am talking about to a reasonable degree.
