Foil SUP / New foils
« on: April 12, 2018, 09:10:02 AM »
SANO and I picked up our shipment from Gofoil from  FedEx yesterday. Super stoked on the new IWAs. Got them all unboxed, dialed in and ready to go for this morning and... raining.
Chopped up...a real mess. Supposed to be good over the weekend and I'll be camping with the girls scouts in Anza Borrego because my wife backed out claiming she hates camping if there is no room service. I feel like a kid on  Christmas who can't ride his new bike until New Years day.   :P

SUP General / Re: Shot to the ribs... Just don't cough or sneeze.

I picked up a lightweight life jacket at Big 5 for $35.  Since I started foiling I figured I needed all the protection I could get as it will protect my ribs, chest and back. It works great, does not interfere with paddling, and doesn't look too kooked out although I could care less about that at 53 years old.  Added bennie, I got caught in a big multi wave hold down that would have gassed me if I didn't have the vest on.  As it was, I just kept bobbing up like a big cork, not a problem.  I might cheat and wear the thing all the time on bigger days even when I ditch the foil for my standard sup.

Foil SUP / Slingshot?
« on: September 20, 2017, 12:32:29 PM »
Anyone have some input on these? I have a Naish foil on order but am worn out looking for a board. I normally sup a 7'7"X27.
These seem like a decent deal.

I was checking out the stick on pads yesterday and was told that they are not removable.

The whole park can be breaking nicely, you're driving south thinking about the chest high glass you're seeing then...
Wahhh wahh wahhhh....
nuthin' at the patch.
Just a couple of butt boarders groveling around in the mush.
So you wait it out thinking the tide shift will help...then here comes the wind, the tiny little flag starts flapping up on top of the telephone pole. Oh how I hate you tiny little flappy flag.
You then convince yourself that it is only bound to get worse so you'd better go out now and at least get wet and grab a few before it's totally blown... 5 minutes later you're in the water and it's totally blown and the sheep have arrived in droves.
So you say 'ef it, go back to the beach and discover that the water is STILL off at the showers.
Then you grab a chair and Sano Sup breaks out the coffee thermos , you talk story,
marvel about the beautiful day and how, regardless of the conditions, it's great to be here.

A guy where I work called in sick because there was supposed to be some good wind picking up where he lived in Vermont.
He was out kiting a lake, got picked up by a squall and his kite dove onto a bridge where it got snagged by a passing car.
Tragically he was killed, which made the whole thing morbidly ironic.

Random / Re: Corran Addison SUP Kickstarter in Trouble
« on: April 15, 2015, 02:27:18 PM »
This is all pretty baffling and too bad. Corran is a great shaper to work with. From sitting down at his kitchen table and coming up with a custom design to hitting the water with it was a 4 week turn around for me.  He pumped out a 7'7" by 27" that is by far the best board I have ever ridden. 12#s but also bullet proof. Thought about getting him to make me another one as a back up before he leaves for Canada. Great guy, great shaper, awesome surfer.

Gear Talk / Re: Step Down Rails? Good or bad
« on: September 22, 2014, 10:38:43 PM »
What Sano said:
On a conventional rail the water is only making one transitional turn over the deck before exiting then tail. On a step deck, the water makes the first turn from under the board, creating a low pressure zone then makes another turn up to the deck creating a high pressure point, then turns again over the top of the deck in another low pressure event before exiting the tail. The water has more area to traverse, thus more skin friction takes place. The water is also negotiating a series of three turns, leading to a higher degree of form, or pressure, drag.  The combination of skin friction and form drag is known as profile drag, part of the larger equation of parasite drag. This all just adds up to a loss of energy through turns.
At least this is how it was explained to me by my local shaper. 
I took his suggestion and opted for chines just before my head exploded.

Every spider my kids see in the garage is supposedly a "black window". Really they are all a combo of black widows and their evil cousins the brown widow. Sat on one on the tailgate of my truck 13 years ago and it was not a pretty sight according to my then girlfriend, now wife. If that's not true love well then it's something really kinked up. Either way, you marry that...
Yes the 57 is gone after 30 years, I got over it by ordering my new Corran 7'7" by 27.5" the same day. It's a hybrid between the MACH and the Retro, we named it the Nuke. It just came out of the cutting shop today, pics to come in a few weeks when it's finished...

Carver/mild slasher?
However I thought I was a runner until the other day I caught my reflection in a glass building as I was running? by.
I looked like a rusty robot about to seize up and vapor lock.
Just went in for my colonoscopy consult. Who knew turning 50 could be so much fun?

SUP General / Re: In defense of the buttboarders at Dog Patch
« on: August 28, 2014, 02:21:13 PM »
In the case of the "one guy" it is a matter of safety. He takes off on EVERYTHING regardless of positioning or a sense of rotation: these are non issues to him. And it's not that he doesn't know better. The last time he dropped in on me I was sure he would kick out of the nice chest high ride I was on. But no, he just kept cutting back into me, we nearly collided a few times before I gave up. I had an amicable, but less than friendly, talk with him and we give each other a lot of room now. However I watch him doing the same thing time and time again to others in the line up. He is unsafe and I can understand the measures Bill Stewart had to take to quarantine this one guy, now we are all paying for it at Patch. I don't however hate the guy, he is super nice and friendly, but he a a constant source of frustration to DP.

Yeah, broke my cardinal rule of not surfing on the weekend, big mistake.
There actually were literally, crapping you negative, 250 cars at 5045 when I showed up. I was lined up next to the nuke reactors on Basilone. Cars were double parked right off the bat. Made it in the water at 0700 and stayed out a mere 45 minutes.  Overhead on the sets but blowing so hard off shore it was extremely difficult to make the drop.  And when you did drop you didn't have enough speed to do anything in the face of all that wind. Add to that the mob scene, combo demolition derby/rodeo atmosphere - I caught two and called it.
1. Don't cross the streams
2. Don't surf on a summer weekend.
