Random / Re: Any ice skaters? Thin ice fun
« Last post by Badger on Today at 03:45:47 PM »
Funny enough, I was thinking why this video resonated with me, then I remembered when a few years ago I witnessed similar ice condition on the small lake where I used to live back then. I found a video on my phone. what would be a good way to upload it?

 And it was not on the video but I saw some small rat-sized animal swam literally under my feet. that was cool too.

Yes, I've seen muskrats swimming under the ice while out walking on my pond. They can actually stay under indefinitely by collecting air from bubbles under the ice which I've seen them do.

Thx wardog!

Badger, I'm setting up for a huge bottom turn then a massive lip smack that got Rick's hair wet,,, then up for some cheater five nose time!, oh then I woke up, have no idea why the paddles like that  :o

I think I know. You must have caught the wave going fin first. Then you spun the board around while on the wave. I've seen it done on YouTube.

Awesome! Looking forward to seeing build pictures.

I would treat yourself to nice resin and glass cloth, surfboard grade all the way around and not boat grade or 'mystery' grade.

I am not sure how the Greenroom (not Greenlight) people are doing in the Carolinas but I really like their Old#7 epoxy resin.  I have a 2 year old sailboat project with #7 that is still looking fresh and it is stored outside, no tarp and no varnish...except where I have damaged the unglassed wood and then it weathers immediately. The glassed portions of the boat look great.

I would not hesitate to use Resin Research either, about 1/2 of my dozen board projects were done with Kwik Kik.

Foil SUP / Re: Foil Videos

That kayak video looked a bit out of control but like Bill said, with a sliding seat it has potential.  The Indo waves seemed to be much better suited for the shortboard without the foil.

Here is another video by Skyla Rayner from Australia with some beautiful cinematography.
Rider is Nathan Cross on a 6'0 Easy Foiler with our 1240 Foil:

The Shape Shack / Re: Remove Water from Board

Pull off the packing tape, open the wound a little, flip it over, put it in the sun and see if it drips. You're three pounds up, that's three pints of water--not a small amount. My goto repair for cracks and small wounds is aluminum tape. Makes the purist gag, but it's absolutely waterproof, fairly tough, and sticks on so well you need to razor it off. Weighs next to nothing. My poor old hollow SIC 17' V1 has yards of it on it with minimal weight gain. If I repaired all the cracks and dings it would gain ten pounds or more.  A week ago I stabbed Mr. Fugly with a paddle on the top deck. it was bubbling as I paddled in, I duct taped (all I had) some paper towel over the hole and went back out to play. Redid the duct tape and paper towel for the ride home with the board upside down in the Maui sun. Got a little water out, replace the duct tape with aluminum tape and burnished it in place--two layers. I have no plans to do "permanent" surgery, Mr. Fugly is resting comfortably.

That board is perfectly capable of those maneuvers on a wave for a bigger guy with surf skills...and, a bit more...;-)

Wow. I've seen of SUP fishing, but SUP bow-hunting is a new one. It must take a lot of liters to get that buck back home!



 ;D ;D ;D

I can tell you it takes a good number pints (as in beers) to cut, pack, and wrap!

General Discussion / Re: Video of Maldives trip - Sunova & Moon Tours
« Last post by Zooport on Today at 01:21:24 PM »
Zoo, that was pretty typical of our surf, sometimes bigger but not too big. What I call 'fun size', big enough to challenge you but not too scary. Bert probably rode 100 waves like the one in the video and James had 200.
How are the lefts there?  Are there any?

Ha, same question. Thinking of making this part of a 10 yr anniversary trip with my wife.

We only surfed rights on our trip, but there are spots with lefts. Bert is a goofie-foot and complained a bit, but made the best of it. The spot  where we spent most of out time had a left, but a barge got stuck on it and ruined it.

I'm a goofy foot and prefer lefts, but with rights as beautiful as those were, I doubt I'd complain too much. Looks amazingly fun.
