Re: british invasion

From what I have read you might want to take I-90 rather than I-80. I have traveled good distances on both. Both have elevation, but I-80 is known for its high winds on the Wyoming segment. Driving home from the paipo gathering a year ago, my wife and I were being chased by a huge storm--we probably...

Re: british invasion

Hey Paul, I assume you were surfing Indian River Inlet, the big bridge over the inlet. Good to hear the wave is working for you. A paipo buddy might be going down to Hatteras in late-Sept or sometime during October. He might get a hotel room or a small cottage. Guess you will be traveling down the E...

Re: End of an Era

Thomas so sorry about the above news The frustration extends out to us clients as well It takes years to find a good shaper and then we get this kind of disappointing news and the uncertainty that the future might bring <snip> Agree wholeheartedly. It is great to have such a knowledgeable and skill...

Re: british invasion

Pez, yeah, we are a couple to a few hours from the coast from our triangle. At the turn of the century we had an active area surf club that was actively ride-sharing 7 days a week, watching for swell, and doing pretty well at it. A lot of us could rearrange our schedules to hit the swell during the ...

Re: Wet suit cool water

...and plenty of bootie foot cover and gloves. In the cold water I will usually layer my booties with titanium 1mm inside and a 4-5mm outer fin sock.

Re: Wet suit cool water

I am not familiar with the Adrenaline brand. The main thing is selecting a wetsuit that fits and provides freedom of movement. For reason, Rip Curls just don't fit my upper body, O'Neil does, so I go from there. Sometimes moving up a grade within a brand name can make a huge difference in warmth. My...

Re: Another paipo video

Lacanau Plage, fun place. My son and spent 4-5 days there back in 2000. A different worldly experience that is for sure. Most of the time we went surfing the next village north, Carcans Plage, and one day a drive-around up to Plage Gurp. Le Gurp Plage was an interesting experience as it is a naturis...

Re: fish the movie

Hydrodynamica did end up with a great museum showing and accompanying book. Seriously? Fat lot of good that did for the surfing world. Never heard a word about any of it. For all the hipster hype they put out... Ah well. Piss on it. Did anybody other than me see that fantastic documentary Greg Sche...

Nice you can sneak away harmlessly and catch a few. Testing for infection and antibodies is a serious limitation in the U.S.A.

If you really want a price Randy Rarick is probably the guy. He's on FB. Did the woman say when he used it in Hawaii? What does the bottom look like?
One of those sides is the bottom! Notice that each photo shows the lower handle on the left or right.

Re: Calling all Europeans

I have a lot more information on the postal card and a better translation than our early attempts that show up on Geoff's Pods for Primates website. It is buried under a pile of other stuff.
