Certainly a good start, but shouldn't the entire wall be padded?

Call ahead to see if you can store your board(s) with bell service.  Even if they say no, you might be able to deal with the bell team directly.

Some hotel's, like Hilton HV in Waikiki for instance, will not store boards.  But in Waikiki, regardless of where you stay, there is actually a great option with Nalu Storage further down the beach between the Royal Hawaiian and Dukes.  This nicely puts you closer to Queens and Canoes, if that's your thing.   

For the last dozen or so years I've been using Kanulock, lockable tie-down straps.  They won't stop a fully motivated thief but might keep the casual sticky-fingers in their pockets. Definitely not for overnight in most places.

The ultimate in board-theft prevention is the ugly board.  Barring the ugly board, a sufficiently tatty board sock or bag may also be helpful. 

As for mountain biking, SC might be right!  At 59, I'm usually one of, if not the oldest in the group.  ;D

Unlike Tesla (having sold more than 200,000 units), Rivian is still eligible for the $7,500 tax credit.

This is going to be a fun one to watch.  R1 series, truck, SUV soon, (maybe a van), Rivian/Ford partnership, Rivian/Amazon relationship (you can't have their van), likely R2 series...all this and a looming IPO too.

...Also any tips for strapping a 12' board to the top of your car? It was pretty sketchy last time I did it, and I had it strapped down enough to flex the bars.

When you strap a board to your racks make sure that the straps are perfectly vertical from where they leave the board to the rack.  If they are strapped on an angle, even though they might be tight as hell, once they slip vertical they will be slack.  Also make sure there is less board sticking out from the front rack than the rear rack (a 6" difference is usually plenty).

Technique / Re: Prone paddling out over breaking waves
« on: September 22, 2021, 11:36:55 AM »
There are times when prone paddling might make sense.  For instance in short period conditions (one after the other, rapid fire), when I get knocked down on the inside during a paddle out, I might opt to prone paddle the last few yards out to the line-up.  I like to place the face of the blade under my chest with the paddle shaft offset to one side but still worry about getting smacked when I break through.  I feel that this is faster for me than getting back to my feet, or even kneeling.

Some outstanding days from Larry down here at the Jersey Shore as well.

Great shots JP!

Bill Foote designed a line of boards for 808 Boards that were very similar to the Triton. I surfed a 9'8" for a couple of weeks on Maui a few years ago, still one of my favorite all around boards.

Very nice!

I am truly blessed with a short 2mi to the beach and 1.5mi to the trails, but you won the lottery TD!

I might find out the hard way this weekend on some steeper trails.  I'm hoping not to have to dismount and "cyclocross" , and shoulder carry, my way to the top. 

We have some fairly steep single track here in NJ, but they are relatively short duration climbs.  A climb lasting more than 10-15 min here is a rarity.

Thanks TD, mine is a Shimano build, but there are still lots of nice options.  I am going from a 1x11 with a 42 to a 1x12 with a 51 so as I found out last night on my local trail, there is pretty decent low range for now.  Very stoked, appreciate the input!

If it make the difference between making a climb or having to hike it, count me in.
