Re: Board bags

Call Zap the other day and will be ordering from them. Getting a coffin bag that is 24" wide and it's 4" deep should be good for the boards I have.

Re: Board bags

I may go with a Zap bag. I have two of their day bags and I think I should be fine with a coffin. I'm going call and see how wide they are compared to the day bags might be the same though. My new board is 22" wide snd there wasn't much room on the sides. Thanks for the link to the airwave folks wou...

Re: Board bags

They got back to me this morning with a 2.5 week lead time and would cost about $150 plus shipping. I'm just looking for a day bag really but the catch is I would need to have a fin slot being my latest board is a single fin. I'm most likely going to get D surf bag and see if I can get a fin slot pu...

Re: Can't help myself

Well I think some of my frustration is that I've had this obsession with doing a flex spoon/greenough inspired board for a long time. I was really hoping to get it done on this one, maybe I put to much pressure on myself with it. Nomas you are correct with if shaping was easy everyone would do it. T...

Re: Board bags

Just sent them an email, will see how long it takes for them to get back to me. Another option is DSurf here in SD county they make recycled bags from all their off cuts I believe. The have a mini simmons bag that I had before that I think will work well. Would need to pad the board up but the bag h...

Re: Fins

I looked at those a while ago and they were a bit tight new but some used ones I found felt good in the same size. I'm going to see if that second hand store in OB has some. They usually have a big selection of fins.

Re: Can't help myself

Well shaped the board yesterday and didn't come out the way I was planning so had to rethink a couple things. I was trying to get that rounded bottom you see in the greenough flex spoons so I shaped the bottom rail bands first turning them up to 70%. Then doing the top rails at 30% but it didn't wor...

Re: Fins

I have tree trunks for legs and I wear 4e in New Balance. Most of the time I feel like I don't go anywhere if it's consistent paddling out. If the waves are weak I tend to have to take off really late. If there is a strong current I struggle as well. Maybe with a longer board may help but I think I ...

Fins

So I have the cheap set of fins for 35 bucks made by H2O. I like them but seem to missing some thrust when kicking into waves. Anyone have some suggestions on what to try? I have wide feet and like a soft foot pocket. Tried DaFins and Vipers and didn't really like them much.

Re: Paipo Gathering - Early-Oct 2017?

ok I'll see about getting a site in a day or two and see how much interest there is. I usually make a trip up that around that time so it's all good with me.

Re: Paipo Gathering - Early-Oct 2017?

Ok those dates have a better selection, wasn't sure what dates you were looking at. Should we just get two sites? I'm in the middle of changing banks right now so might take a day or two get money to reserve.

Yeah I saw that I was looking at the weekend earlier that had the handicapped sites

Re: Paipo Gathering - Early-Oct 2017?

I saw the El Cap spots but they are handicapped ones. Not sure if we could reserve them. I'll call tomorrow and find out if we can use those spots.

Re: Paipo Gathering - Early-Oct 2017?

If we were to do Hobsons or Faria which is the next campground further south and a bigger campground in October both are first come first serve. After October you can reserve spots at Hobsons. Two cars per site with WiFi and it's $36 in season $30 off season. Hobsons is a bit tight though but is pre...

Re: Can't help myself

That looks like a good shape. My rockers will be 3" N and 1.25" T, not sure about 12" measurements just yet. May put the wide point back from center 2" or so for better support when I knee ride it.

Can't help myself

So I ordered another blank today, going with 5'10 RP Blue density stringerless poly blank. It will be a hybrid of a kneeboard and paipo, planning on splitting the difference from what all my other boards have been. Dims will be 5' 22" 2.75" out at the rails and 2.25-2" in the center of the concave d...

Re: Board bag, swim fins and Rasta keels

For sure Dave. I hope that info for your friend works out. Sorry I didn't explain exactly what I was talking about. I can get side tracked.
