    San Onofre

    ah that is where i surf all the time! i thought it was just the vague area in between old mans and the point, did not know it had a name. I feel like the current many times funnels me into that area and instead of paddling back to where i started a just go with the flow and wait for waves...

    Building a Paipo?

    I am thinking i might build my own first like this. Just a flat piece of marine ply like you said. See how it works. Then give my carpenter buddy some input and he can make something more fancy. what size do you ride in a flat plywood board? I am 5'10" 170lb

    Building a Paipo?

    yes it seems that more float would be better and would not kill the speed nor vibe. I watched a video of john wegner building one, he sandwiches in a layer of EPS foam between 2 layers of paulowina for extra float. going down the internet rabbit hole of prone surfing now... so much fun info...

    What do you do when you’re surfed out?

    i have yet to be surfed out. I find either work travel or a weekend full of kids related activities forces a few days off here and there. I am on a broadcast job in San Francisco for 8 days so no surfing for 8 days and i missed all that good swell. Prior to arriving i surfed 9 days straight...

    Cities to Surf and raise a family in that are somewhat affordable?

    Have you guys seen the Pacasso thing? Its basically a time share app. More of the same degradation of actually trying to build a community.

    In search of the ultimate cruiser

    i really like the roy sanchez boards. I have an 8' x 22" x 2 7/8" pintail single fin called the dreadnought glider. It works in 2 foot mush up to overhead. It paddles fast, catches waves easily, turns well, and is fast down the line. It would be my 1 board quiver if i had to choose from...

    WTB - Bing Pocket Knife

    I have a 9’6” bing pocket knife. Just bought it used last week. I actually think I want something longer. I can send photos it’s in great shape. I paid $800 which is a great price. So I would want that for it. I live in Oceanside.

    If you were to order a brand new noserider today, what would you get?

    I am recently curious about EC / Eric Christenson noseriders. I had a 8'6" super sled that was fun but too small for my needs. I also have been riding a freeride egg and i love it... on both boards the rail design / foil is to my liking.... also he seems somewhat affordable and accessible.
