Re: Paipo Gathering - Fall 2015?

Only the Shadow knows. :P According to Austin Gendron: There’s still some discrepancies between the different models, but the GFS shows a system forming over the next day or so east of the Philippines. As it strengthens it moves northward towards Japan late in the week, then sucked east into the jet...

Re: Paipo Gathering - Fall 2015?

Pes78 and I are confirmed sharing camp site 713. I will arrive Sunday late afternoon. I will bring some dry oak for evening fire pit confab. You gotta stay late Skiff....better yet book Sunday night. Offerings to the surf Gods for El Cap magic....all together now. Barring that I predict worst case t...

Re: Paipo Surf Spots in Ventura

Good point about taking off at more of an angle on walled waves...gives you speed and direction combined on the drop....getting what you can out of the face before close out.... at which time turn toward shore to minimize potential pounding. Trial and error.

Re: Paipo Surf Spots in Ventura

Mondos is fine for SUPs and long boards with tons of float....not enough juice for body boarding. It is the opposite extreme to where you have been going out in South Ventura.

Re: Paipo Surf Spots in Ventura

I have read about the Wave Arrow but never seen one so I will refrain from comment on it as a surf craft. It does sound like you are riding at a close out beach break? Wham bam with no peaks or corner that affords an opportunity to head down the line or "trim". Where are you going out? Sou...

Rod...to quote Surfline on Santa Barbara: "FALL: This is when you want to be here. Oily glass, long-interval west swells, neoprene-warming sunshine all day -- yeah, it happens, usually in September and October. Autumn is a transitional period, so you should expect the best and the worst. Howeve...

Rod...if I am following the thread correctly....
Skiff is departing Sunday...

Re: Paipo Gathering - Fall 2015?

I am in for part....perhaps all....to be determined. I will be tenting it. I live 20 minutes South so am struggling as to whether I want to day trip some of it so I can sleep in the comfort of my own bed. :?:

Re: Paipo Gathering - Fall 2015?

Couple Skiff's recommendation with Uncle's mid week call and you have the clear winner. Seriously.... the Emma Wood group site is little better aesthetically than camping in a barren dirt parking lot no matter what day of the week. Sorry Nomas.

Re: Paipo Gathering - Fall 2015?

Skiffs EC suggestion coupled with the Uncles mid week suggestion sounds a winner. Also better/prettier campground than Emma Wood which is a consolation prize if no swell. Nomas is right about better swell prospect Dec/Jan but Kage is right about chilly weather. Hmmmm.

I am now the proud owner of both a TBG2 and TBG4...bottoms of which both have a single 4oz cloth layer. I expressed my hesitation about this to Nomas....and here is his very erudite reply. I have had the TBG2 for over a year and traveled to Mexico as well as making some rocky exits....no problems so...

Re: Board outline, with and without fins

Apologies for my uncalled for outburst Krusher. Thanks for taking it in good humor and sending me some youth. As a generalization I will accept your C St. observation. I have 55 years time in grade in these waters and I love them and I got a bit defensive. Fact remains....on some days C St. can be p...
