Re: Things prone in general

Nels....you are much more of a technician than me. I am a simple point and shoot guy on a Nomas Tomas creation. My Happy hunting ground is typically as far South as C St. and as far North as El Cap. I am a Point guy...seldom interested in beach break anymore unless smaller. If you ever find yourself...

Temps back in the low 60s Rod. Surfline says: " We're on track to see a nice run of SSW swell (210-185) for next weekend."

Re: Paipo Gathering - Oct 8-10, 2017

Surfline says: "We'll wait a bit longer before diving into precise surf heights, but fun size SSW swell (195-185) looks likely for many exposed breaks the 6th-9th (with a peak in swell for the 7th-8th)" Not much North swell predicted which means Jalama or Ventura will be best bet for a road trip.......

Re: Paipo Gathering - Oct 8-10, 2017

Cooled down a bit....Surfline calls both Ventura and Jalama 63 degrees today. I will be 3.2. I am thinking Jalama might be the call. I have not been up there in some years and would be fun. Jalama Grill is famous for their apres surf burgers. It is a different world above Pt. Conception.....always f...

Re: Board bags

I have used ZAP bags for G2/G4 day use.....and then pack them both in a third Airwave bag for travel. Extremely tight fit and no extra room for nada that might create pressure dings. Trips to Mexico and Hawaii with no problem. Nomas....look forward to seeing your new bags when I test run the new G5 ...

Re: The Paipo Surf Party (World)

Interesting find Rod. Outside of Prague and appears to be on an inland river. :?: Latest online review this month so apparently still open and ready for a visit. Gotta be an interesting backstory.
