Tried the GoPro camera my son gave me for Christmas. Was waiting for a clean little day to give it a go. Undecided on mounting it on one of the boards so I figured to try it hand held first. In the line-up its a bit hard to tell if I have it "on and not all that easy to paddle with either. Regardless, very happy with the clear picture it provides. Neat little toy. Oh, and what a beautiful late January morning. Fun little loggin waves and not a cloud in the sky. Aloha!
"Hulls just don't work here." That's what the man said! OK, let me backtrack a bit. I am in one of my favorite local surf shops last week and talking boards and design with the owner. I mention my Vaqueros and some other hulls that I've had and he comments how they just don't work here (east coast). So I get a bit defensive as I know that the guy is a good surfer and ask why he'd say that. He says that he's never really ridden one and that he bases his opinion on the dynamics of the round bottom and goes on to say that a flat or concave bottom is what works best in our waves. Really? Really??
