Re: Can't help myself

Nice Paul. However....my ride preference remains the Nomastomas wider at the tail with pivot point further back. For me his design provides more support/stability/maneuverability in the wave without any sacrifice in speed. To each his own.

Re: SR-72 canard H fin

Hope to try it some day. I am no techie...i.e. everytime I get on an airplane I am skeptical it will get off the ground....but it works.

Re: SR-72 canard H fin

I still dont get the concept...seems like built in drag and turn resistance. Color me skeptical. Need a test drive.

Re: Paipo Gathering - Early-Oct 2017?

Nothing wrong with El Cap...I am splitting hairs. I am a go but probably only one night...happy to pay for two.

Figures.
Another option:

Don't get me wrong....El Cap is a stellar wave....always happy to give it a go.
I will stand down and await decision.

Not first choice for surf......but a more central location with closer access to other options than El Cap.

Re: Paipo Gathering - Early-Oct 2017?

El Cap is a great wave when it is firing....but it is fickle. Pes you stay at Hobsons frequently when you are here. Below Santa Barbara....above Ventura....more surfing options given the West facing Ventura spots....south facing Santa Barbara spots. Smaller camground but right on the water and Hobso...

Re: Uh-oh Kelly Slater better look out--warm water too!

Future shock..... Multitudes of land lubbers cutting their teeth on manufactured waves across the fruited plain....... then planning pilgrimages to every decent coastal surf spot in order to experience the true Zen of the ocean experience. Crowds upon crowds. Eco systems even more stressed than they...

Re: New Paipo Mania board

Beautiful board.....but I still swear by Nomas TB design wider in the back and narrower at the nose. I find it offers extra body supoort for lift and increased ease for pivoting the board back and forth and up and down the wave face. Different strokes for different folks.

Quiet times on the forum and on the water. I have been watching this Surfer video occasionally to remind myself why we continue the search. Great music too. I hope it plays for you and provides some inspiration. file:///Users/SBlack/Desktop/As%20Good%20As%20It%20Gets%20On%20The%20Sunshine%20Coast%20...

Re: What's your favorite board for small days ?

Ha....that spot is I what I call Hobos. Place of last resort when nothingelse is worthy. There is a reason it is never crowded. Quality challenged.
Hope to see you C St. next week.

Re: T-Belly Gen 4x

Hmmm.....so am to understand that CF makes for a more "ding proof" board? Are there any downsides to CF?
I guess what I am trying to get to....at only a $25 up charge.....is there any downside to going CF?

Re: T-Belly Gen 4x

Probably....might also have something to do with my being left handed and stand up goofy foot. :idea: Color me upside down and out of the box.....but it does seem to work fine. 8-)
