Vibe sesh
« on: December 20, 2013, 01:18:14 PM »
Scored a used Vibe on Craigslist. Pretty stoked on it. I don't see it working in real hollow, steep waves, but for most of the conditions I'm in here in NJ, should be my go to board. Went from a 9'11" PSH Ripper two yrs ago to a 9'3" Isle Performance and now I'm on this. My second go out on it in this vid and it's feeling good in the small stuff.

Really enjoyed the second video. With the water temps you guys must have, that looks gnarly! Cold water like that is a lot heavier. Nice riding.

Thanx for checkin' out my vids covesurfer and Will. Cold water? No worries, i guess I'm so used to it by now that it's second nature. These days had pretty mild air temps which makes a big difference. When we get those brutal Canadian/Arctic air masses and wind chills is when it starts gettin tough.

Good "Vibe"s this day here in NJ!  8) Pretty clean little waves on 1/16/14! Pretty warm too, for Jan. Air around 40, water 'bout the same. Real light wind helped.

Good swell here in Jers last coupla days. I think 1/22/14 was one of the coldest I ever surfed here. 1/22 was a bit too gnarly for me to SUP so I rode my big wave longboard, I call her "Big Blue". 1/23 was SWEET on the Vibe though, piece 'o cake!

Thanx for checkin out my pics, Creek. Yea, there's def a winter crew of hardcores here in NJ that is only a fraction of the fair weather crowd. LOVE the solitude of winter surfing best.

First go out w/the bicycle handlebar mount results. Swing weight is a factor and after about 1-1/2 hrs it started to wear on me. I think mounting on blade might even be worse, but I won't know until next sesh when I give that a go. One thing, next time I use this mount, leash/tether will be on blade end, not handle end. One or two shots it showed. I did like how I was able to collapse cam and still paddle prone w/paddle under chest. Guessing that will not be possible w/a blade mount. Could be the deciding factor, especially in size. Fun little day here in NJ. Not too cold for mid-Feb.

Sweet pics!  I like the perspective you get with that mount. I'm still taking baby-steps with my GP...  Paddle on,  JD

I try and find different ideas off the top of my head for vids, but sometimes the well runs dry.
Here's my first GoPro vid from Jers. Fun little day but alot of closeouts. Paddle mount is a tricky learn.

Cool pics I'm on a vibe as we'll these days and liking it a lot. What's your fin setup?  Do you find the rails still a bit thick. How tall are you and weight?  Floats me fine but I'm small. 5'6" 155

Thanx JD and SSIS for checkin' out my Vibe action. Start takin' bigger steps JD!
SSIS- I started w/the stock tri setup and after about a month and 5 or so sessions went to a custom quad setup of Sea Shepherd swing twinies and trailing bites. The rails are def FAT on this board so it's hard to really lay it on edge, but for most conditions I encounter here in NJ it's my go to board. I'm 6'0"/180 lbs so this board must be like a barge for you. Vibe is 130 ltrs and my 9'3" Isle Performance is 124 ltrs. i use that board for the bigger more hollow days as it's quite gunny.

Not quite a barge but it definitely floats me I paddle to and from breaks sometimes and deal with chop and wind a fair bit so not so bad but a thinner rail would be nice maybe even an s rail same dimensions.  I'm going to try that fin set up seams almost like a Simmons set up. Thanks for the info.
