Gear Talk / Paddle / Rail Protectors - How well do they work ?
« on: June 02, 2008, 03:08:54 AM »
Just wondering how many of you have tried the rubberized guard that attaches to the edge of the paddle?  Couple of questions:

1.  Does it really help eliminate the "chipping" of the outer layer of the board caused when an unprotected paddle hits the rail?

2. Does it affect paddle performance?

3.  Do they mount securely enough so they don't come off?

Thanks -

Technique / Turning while surfing a wave??
« on: June 01, 2008, 12:16:13 PM »
Just wondering, being new to SUP, what is the best way to turn the larger boards (11' 6")once you actually catch the wave ?  I am guessing it involves getting more towards the tail of the board and maybe placing your back foot to the side where you want to turn rather than keeping it on the center of the board.  I have only gone out 2 x's and have been able to catch smaller waves OK, but once I start to turn either the rail gets buried or it takes forever.  Any suggestions??
