Waimea be nasty at that size. Looks like to would be fun to bodysurf, but board? nope, no, no, thanks, nope.

So Iím clear here. Was he sentenced for the act of SUP or for the assault?

If it was assault, will he be sentenced separately for the SUP?
Two years for assault w/ a deadly weapon, and 3 years for causing great bodily harm, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune, but it doesn't say if they will be served concurrently.
I hope it's not concurrent, no aloha, no freedom!

I use a waist hydration pack when Iím wearing a full PFD. I kind of like a back hydration pack better, so in that case I will wear a waist PFD. It looks dorky, like I have too much stuff on. Not that that ever made a difference to me.

General Discussion / Re: Surfboard Leash String - what to use?
« Last post by Badger on Today at 04:04:19 PM »
I'm guessing that is the 1/8th inch Spectra/Dyneema line Robert is using.

One concern I have about using rope that thin is that it might cut through the railsaver. I also don't like how the railsaver slides back and forth on the double plug setup which I would think might also cause chafe, But Robert says it works and I have to trust his experience. I'm sure he has seen every leash failure scenario ten times over.   :)

Burchas, do have any experience with Nelo yet?

Yes. Not the perfect SUP PFD. If you're just cruising and want a reasonably priced low profile PFD it might work.
Works much better if you have a bigger bust. Flat chested will require the crotch strap to prevent from riding up and it's awkward.

Sizing not an issue at all, will fit most people. Not a good fit for performance paddling imo. The shoulder trim might create neck chafing for Stand-Up
or Canoe paddlers. I didn't even bother taking it out, just going through the motions for few second with the PFD on and I knew it's going back.

Replaced it with a new Vaikobi PFD.

Good to know.  Iíll contact Vaikobi and see if they have one that might fit me.

Seems like the surfski companies have better options for PDFs

I have not tried these, but they seem much better designed

Been using the Vaikobi PFD for few years now. very low profile and with Back pocket for Hydration (up to 3 Liter)
Very light and highly adjustable. Pockets are useful but for light use, otherwise wear and tear is quick.

Just ordered the V3 so hopefully they improved that weak point.
