Re: fish the movie

Krusher, do you have editing skills or just views on what makes a good video? I'm giving some serious thought about a short video on Hawaiian paipo boards. Bob I have No editing skills, I just notice when videos have no narrative or continuity. There are hundreds of online resources the give the Sk...

Re: fish the movie

Jeez guys...I watched this back when it was posted and thought it was fine. If I recall it was not a Red Bull product; I suspect Red Bull is just making it available, which I appreciate (especially ofter looking at their other offerings). Nels I think maybe wires are crossed, we were mostly (i thin...

Re: "swimming board" elva fin swim

That's a very complicated expensive design to not even have a thought for waves. I always wonder how many of these things ever sell. As far as surfing, i'st forcing you to be very far back with that much volume in front of your I think will make it very hard to surf. I could get a bodyboard to padd...

Re: fish the movie

I'm glad you guys had the same feelings about the redbull video as me (fell like I'm just a moaning old fart sometimes) I think its an unfortunate modern thing that now with such easy access the good quality video gear (or just do it on your phone) That people have no idea there are many other skill...

Re: fish the movie

A guy in california brought me a board to the beach once to try that had been made as a prone board but was basically small fish, I took is out and hated it. I think it was about 4.10 but was just far too long, you had to be constantly moving to the front to make it go and right to the back to get o...

There's a little bit of paipo stuff at the start of this, but is a great movie anyway, https://www.redbull.com/int-en/films/fi ... JeARY2gTmI

Re: Finless surfing by John Galera

I can see that designs failings in that one video, no hold and drive from the rail on the take off to make clean face. Then really no rail grip at all once the whitewater hits. The rail is blown and he's sliding pretty much the whole time.

Re: New board

Seldom, I'll see if I can get a link to John Galera's video. The Galera boards have a huge concave deck and this looks like it would make the rail hard to keep connected/sunk in the wave face. the design of your latest board is the opposite and looks like it would knife into the face easily and res...

Re: New board

I recall a wave, a while ago, at a long lined point on my fastest board. The problem wasn't holding a high line on a steep face, it was breaking the high line because of the speed. Putting aside the ability to do more acute turns, finless boards can have two problems. One is the momentary loss of c...

Re: And this too shall pass...but not soon enough

Gday Krusher, I'm envious. When all is done and dusted, it would be good to catch up and have a wave or two. Is the cafe/surf shop still open? Bob No , the cafe shut a few weeks ago, we are on unemployment benefit through the government for up to 12 week as of now, tourism was ahuge part of the loc...

Over here in ireland I am on lockdown too, but being in such a rural area. (2weeks done, there straight into a 3week extension) i am able to sneak to some close to my house reefs that are not near any public car park or in view of anyone other than the local farmer who I'm sure could care less.

Re: Soft edge

Did they make the wave at Snowdonia like that deliberately btw? no, I feel its just a sub-optimum designed bottom profile, that is floored due to trying to make a wave that can be used by more than one person at a time. There is the main wave which I feel is sub-optimum dut to there attempt to also...

"Regarding the utility of fins..." just depends on where you want to surf on the wave. Finless boards take different lines than finned boards, but either line can be "fun".
How would you describe these different lines? and are they by choice or by design constraints?

Re: Soft edge

Well, you have a testing ground down in Bristol at the wave. no too far for a road trip.

I would not recommend surf Snowdonia in wales as the wave there was less like a normal ocean wave.

Arm leashes specially elbow make boards with pointy bits come back to fast and hard.
That's not my experience of using them, but I guess they work differently for everyone. Dragging a leg leash just sounds horrific! lol
